Liverpool pre-season: Every player fighting for his future

Jurgen Klopp talked down another error from Loris Karius after Liverpool's 3-2 friendly win over Tranmere Rovers, but accepts his goalkeeper will be scrutinised ahead of the new season.

Karius is still feeling the heat six weeks on from his calamitous showing in the Champions League final, as he contributed directly to two of Real Madrid's goal in their 3-1 win in Kiev.

He was then ridiculed by many Liverpool fans on social media for a glossy video of his holiday to the United States that showed him both working out and enjoying life in Los Angeles. I would say the second one but we don't talk about that.

"Let's carry on and make the best of the situation and learn from it".

'You can stop it by not asking, promise? You never ask again, that would be one little step.

The former Borussia Dortmund manager added that he believes that Karius will continue to be criticised until "he has a few fantastic games".

As it stands, however, it really doesn't seem like the German fancies any of the 'keepers on the market and as we all know, he's not one to spend for the sake of it but would rather wait for the right man to become available. None of the three, it should be said, have convinced that they can be Liverpool's goalkeeper for the long term.

The 18-year-old opened the scoring after'just seven minutes at Prenton Park, sweeping a low finish home after being fed inside the box to get the Reds off the mark.

Liverpool were at least able to reflect on a second win in the space of four days, as first-half goals from Rafa Camacho, Sheyi Ojo and Adam Lallana saw them past a spirited Tranmere.
