Jurgen Klopp considering surprise start for Xherdan Shaqiri in season opener

Jurgen Klopp considering surprise start for Xherdan Shaqiri in season opener

Liverpool last faced Napoli in 2010 where the Reds came out 3-1 winners in a Europa League tie.

Liverpool will have to make do without the services of Marko Grujic, Danny Ings, Adam Lallana and Joel Matip for their penultimate pre-season clash against Napoli on Saturday, the club confirmed.

Jurgen Klopp said: "It's pretty likely [he'll make his debut]".

The arrivals, last summer and in January, of Mohamed Salah and Virgil Van Dijk propelled Liverpool to their Champions League final in Kiev against Real Madrid.

Liverpool FC started their summer spending with the £39m addition of Brazil global Fabinho from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco.

"Then it'll be almost a week, or six days in training, since he (started) and yes, he will play". "I think he would be better off here but it is a contract issue, I understand his point of view", Warnock told the BBC.

Israel says Assad back in charge, Syrian front likely to be quieter
When the situation stabilizes, Rudskoy said, the Russian-manned posts would be handed over to Syrian government forces. Assad's sweep of southwest Syria drove hundreds of thousands of refugees toward Israel and Jordan, alarming both.

As a result, Alisson was touted as the future Liverpool goalkeeper, with the deal eventually being done after his return from the World Cup in which he started for Brazil.

"Each player in the world needs training and time to adapt to his teammates".

Klopp is understood to be impressed by the alertness and sharpness Alisson displayed in his first training session and the keeper has also left an impression on his team-mates after pulling off a terrific save to deny Marko Grujic a goal. "A game in midweek but in the summer holidays should be an opportunity, against a really good opponent - it's a really important game for us, it's not "some game" - to show up with our supporters".

"For him it was very good moment in his career, having already had a real experience at Bayern [Munich], at Stoke at Inter".

Liverpool face West Ham United in their first league fixture on August 12.
