The keeper has come under much scrutiny during Liverpool's pre-season and was at fault for the German side's third goal after he palmed Christian Pulisic's shot back out to Jacob Bruun Larsen to slot home.

The American switfly evaded defenders to draw a crucial penalty in the 65th minute of Borussia Dortmund's game against Liverpool in the International Champions Cup.

Virgil van Dijk scored the only goal of an uneventful first half to send Liverpool into the break with the lead, but a string of half-time changes resulted in more action and ultimately saw Dortmund come from behind to win.

Here are five things we learned from the Jurgen Klopp derby in America.

Pulisic has been repeatedly linked with a move to the Premier League in recent seasons with United, Liverpool and Chelsea all said to be monitoring his situation.

The Daily Mail claims that Real Madrid have made an enquiry for Pulisic, and view him as a potential alternative to Eden Hazard this summer.

Loris Karius is unhappy with Jurgen Klopp's decision to sign Alisson

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will sweat on the fitness of Joel Matip for the next few days.

"It's another game and it's all about getting fitness". He's still not really old, he's a fantastic player, and it's deserved people think highly of him in America.

"I still need some time but I feel good and I enjoy being back on the pitch".

Pulisic scored again in the 89th minute by finishing off a nice passing play with teammate Marcel Schmelzer with a low shot to the near post.

The goalkeeper has been under intense scrutiny so far this preseason following his two costly errors in the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid back in May, and he was the subject of more criticism for his performance against Dortmund.

And now, the latest addition to his growing list of mistakes may be one of the last he gets the opportunity to make with new signing Alisson joining up with Liverpool at the start of next week.
