  • Jurgen Klopp Liverpool 22072018

Nat Phillips - 6: Composed presence at the back, cutting out some risky balls with his head, was not really at fault for any of the Dortmund goals but maybe could have stepped in a bit more when he saw the danger.

Troubled with injuries in the past, Sturridge looked fresh and as slick as he did in the 2013/14 season - his best career year to date - when he put numerous defences to the sword alongside Luis Suarez.

It seems Matip is now faced with yet another injury concern, which is sure to come as a blow to Klopp as he continues to gear his Reds side up for the upcoming season.

Liverpool's Sheyi Ojo had a chance to pad the lead on a solo opportunity in the 64th minute but his shot deflected off goalkeeper Marwin Hitz and then bounced off the crossbar. If Belgium and Iceland can go to a World Cup then so can the USA.

Klopp told a news conference on Saturday: "I like him".

In the past, the Schwarzgelben have been fortunate to call upon the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and even Michy Batshuayi to provide the finishing touch.

Christian Pulisic Liverpool Borussia Dortmund ICC 2018

Any hopes that the first goal would help to open up the game proved unfounded, but a string of changes at the interval - which saw Liverpool bring on eight players and Dortmund nine - increased the quality levels on show in Charlotte.

Loris Karius was in action for Liverpool against Borussia Dortmund on Sunday.

Pulisic nearly completed the hat trick in the 93rd minute but his blast from in close was stopped and the rebound went to teammate Jacob Bruun Larsen who deposited it into the empty net as Dortmund improved to 2-0 in the 18-team pre-season tournament.

A Virgil van Dijk had given Liverpool a deserved half-time lead but they fell to a 3-1 defeat against the German side.

There was an early scare for Liverpool when Loris Karius rushed off his line to clear the ball, only for it to go straight towards Maximilian Philipp, who fired wide from long range.

Liverpool last week completed the signing of Alisson from Roma for £65 million - the highest ever transfer fee for a goalkeeper.
