Alisson Set to Make Liverpool FC Debut on Saturday vs Napoli

Alisson Set to Make Liverpool FC Debut on Saturday vs Napoli

Alisson will be the Red's choice shot-stopper for the upcoming Premier League season, and he has already been pictured wearing the vacant number 13 jersey in training.

And, at least provisionally, Alisson will not be Liverpool's number one but their number 13.

Liverpool are also holding out hope of shifting Divock Origi before the window closes with £27 the figure slapped on the Belgian's head following a poor showing in pre-season, with Jurgen Klopp clearly eager to trim the fat.

Loris Karius now holds the No. 1 jersey at Anfield, with Simon Mignolet the club's No. 22, but it's been reported that both players could be offloaded by manager Jurgen Klopp this summer.

"It's pretty likely (he'll make his debut)".




Roberto Firmino joined up with Liverpool's training camp in Evian-les-Bains, France.

Phillips was a surprise top performer in Liverpool's pre-season tour and was a permanent fixture at centre back for the Reds with Dejan Lovren off duty after his World Cup heroics.

Asked about his team selection, the manager told Liverpoolfc.com: "Naby didn't play two or three games, Gini didn't play a lot of games - so they start today".

"I don't think anybody's squad is stronger, including Liverpool's, than Manchester City's". Each player in the world needs training and time to adapt to his mates. "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". They will then start playing for real on August 12, with the Premier League regular season opener at home against West Ham United.
