Divock Origi, the man whose goal secured Liverpool their sixth European Cup, has committed his future to the club by signing a new long-term contract.

If Hoever continues to impress in pre-season we could well see Clyne sold in the last week or so of the transfer window.

Yes, that's a lot of pressure to put on such young shoulders but if Klopp can keep Brewster focused on doing the basics right for the first season of his career, we could be seeing Liverpool's young star more than we expect to next season. "All the young boys didn't play for us past year".

But can he become a consistent first-team performer for Klopp?

Klopp, fresh from leading Liverpool to Champions League victory last season, will be hoping to push Manchester City all the way in the Premier League once more in the new campaign.

"I love the boy, he is fantastic player, but one of the goals I would have scored", said the manager. Why should I play it down?

"Why should I play it down?

We want to play the best season we can play".

Jurgen Klopp's side next face Bradford City on Sunday before going on their USA tour where they will face Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla, Sporting and Napoli. I just don't want to talk after a game about the guy who scored two goals. They are all new players for us, that's all good. I saw a really good game and Rhian is a fantastic player. "There will be opportunities for him, I'm really sure". Firmino is still with Brazil at the Copa America and Mane faces Benin with Senegal this evening.

He scored twice in the remarkable comeback against Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final plus last-gasp winners in the Premier League against Everton and Newcastle.

Last season Origi earned himself cult-hero status with a stoppage-time derby victor against Everton before scoring twice in the 4-0 Champions League semi-final second leg success over Barcelona and then again in the final victory over Tottenham in Madrid.

Last season following defeat in Kiev, Liverpool invested heavily in their squad, bringing in the likes of Naby Keita, Fabinho, Alisson and Xherdan Shaqiri to bolster the team and directly targeted the club's weakest areas.
