Liverpool face fitness concerns in defence for West Ham opener - Jurgen Klopp

Milner needed 15 stitches and he'll be sporting the battle wounds for a few weeks at least but you'd imagine he'll be available for Liverpool's Premier League opener against West Ham at Anfield next Sunday.

"I can not kill your D-day (Sky Sports Deadline Day) show, people sit there in front of the television all day waiting", he added.

Croatia global Dejan Lovren will rejoin the squad on Monday after an extended break following the World Cup but is a doubt for the next two games. The former England global believes that only Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk would make it into Pep Guardiola's team.

A hugely popular figure in his home country, Salah revealed that on one occasion, a seemingly brief act of generosity with a supporter left him facing a steady influx of well-wishers arriving at his home.

With Liverpool gearing up for a title challenge this season having spent big this summer, there is are some other sports that are catching Jugen Klopp's attention, mainly Irish ones it seems.

"He was with us in the Champions League final, and two years ago in the Europa League final". We have very good players, there is a good atmosphere.

We like working together - Mike Gordon, (sporting director) Michael Edwards and myself.

"All goalkeepers are different so it takes a bit of time, but this result will help the defence and help him know how we play as well", Robertson said.
