Speaking to the club's official website, though, Klopp confirmed that they will both appear for the Reds stateside.

"You (the media) can all stop it immediately - promise?"

Until he has a few fantastic games, you can not change that. So let's carry on and make the best of all these situations to learn from it. Our job is to perform and you do what you do and that is part of the deal.

Adam Lallana will start Liverpool's friendly with Tranmere Rovers, while new signings Naby Keita and Fabinho are also included from the off.

Harry Wilson is keen to stay and fight for his place at Liverpool rather than going out on loan.

Marko Grujic could join newly-promoted Cardiff on loan having spent the second half of last season there, while defender Connor Randall is on the radar of St Mirren boss Alan Stubbs.

It ensured Karius once again became the talking point when the focus should well have been on Adam Lallana. A hamstring injury and a lack of games towards the end of the season meant Gareth Southgate could not afford to take Lallana to Russian Federation.

Brandt developed in to one of the hottest young talents in German football since breaking in to the Leverkusen first team three years ago and he enjoyed an excellent campaign last season with 12 goals and 7 assists.

He should really have doubled his tally in the 40th minute after Sheyi Ojo and Rafa Camacho had created an opening down the right.

Talk of a concussion for Karius puzzled Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who revealed that when he was concussed by Alexis Sanchez, he couldn't see the ball, and questioned how Karius was able to make two good saves while concussed.

It looked like Liverpool were on for another big goalscoring sessions.
