The news comes after reports claimed Alisson had decided not to take the number one jersey at Liverpool out of respect for Karius, whom he was brought in to replace as the starting goalkeeper.

But there were enough signs for Liverpool to be very encouraged ahead of the new season.

Liverpool geared up for the new season with a thumping 5-0 win over Italian side Napoli.

The Brazilian rejoined the Reds squad in France this week, after his involvement in this summer's World Cup. "The signs are really good for us to go the next step".

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker will make his debut in Saturday's friendly against Napoli, manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed.

Klopp who is now with the squad in France said all their summer signings, Alisson Becker, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri will get to know their new surroundings before their league opener against West Ham United five days later.

Trump keeps focus on economic success at Tampa rally
Putnam attempted to tap into the president's technical training agenda, even though he wasn't part of Trump's agenda. "'It's OK. The real estate mogul and part-time Florida resident was a frequent visitor to Tampa Bay during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Summer signing Fabinho came off the bench to replace the former England worldwide. The Swiss with the well-developed upper-body looks an appropriate back-up for either of the wider positions - Salah, or Sadio Mane - in Klopp's trusted front three.

Salah seems fully rested and raring to go after a hard few months, Sadio Mane was bright and Roberto Firmino had several nice touches, linking play and knitting Liverpool's explosive attack together.

Some Liverpool fans on Twitter are already loving Naby Keita.

Liverpool: Alisson 6, Clyne 6, Gomez 6, Van Dijk 6, Robertson 6, Wiljnaldum 7, Milner 7, Keita 7, Salah 8, Mane 7, Firmino 7. Xherdan Shaqiri replaced Firmino at half-time and played nearly as a false-nine, dropping deep and looking to pick out the runs of Salah and Firmino.

Karius, who followed up his nightmare display in the Champions League final against Real Madrid with a series of errors in pre-season this summer, has now admitted that his future is up in the air following Alisson's arrival.
