Klopp accepts that the pressure is on at Anfield

Klopp accepts that the pressure is on at Anfield

Liverpool's first match of the Premier League season is against West Ham United on Sunday.

Klopp revealed that Ragnar Klavan would be another absentee at Anfield while Joel Matip and Joe Gomez face late fitness tests.

"I think (Joe Gomez) is okay".

In the biggest moment of his young career, two incredible errors from Karius proved to be the difference between the Reds and Real Madrid, with the goalkeeper tearfully apologising to traveling Liverpool fans after the final whistle. It was only because of the formation, we were not compact enough in these situations.

Liverpool will take on West Ham at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Klopp swapped seven of his starting lineup at half time and the intensity of Liverpool's second-half performance inevitably suffered.

"I was not surprised, to be honest, but as a human being I was hoping for it and I loved it", he added.

'Obviously he was not feeling really well so we sent him home again and I didn't see him so far and I didn't ask anybody, so we will see.

The defensive midfield roles will be spliced up between new boy Fabinho, Gini Wijnaldum, James Milner and Jordan Henderson, with Adam Lallana's return from injury offering additional options.

"We wanted to help him a little bit with the position so that it's not too complicated, gave him a lot of freedom, offensively playing natural, plus offering runs in behind, which is what he did, especially around the Sturridge goal. Hendo needs a pre-season but not as much as the others as he has not had long off".

According to the Mirror, Rio said: "I'm a United fan, and I want to see them win the title, but I fear it's going to be very hard for that to happen this season".

Meanwhile, Wolves are on the verge of signing Leander Dendoncker from Anderlecht.

Dendoncker, rated in the £12m bracket, played for Belgium against England in the group stage at the World Cup.
