Loris Karius to continue as Liverpool’s No.1 by Dave Filmer Published

Xherdan Shaqiri, another new signing who has hit the ground running, played the ball across goal for Grujic to tap in during the training drill, but Alisson was alive to the danger and sprung across his goal to deflect the ball over.

Since linking up with his new Liverpool teammates in France, there has been speculation over what number Alisson would wear this season.

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.

Alisson had been the number one goalkeeper in both standing and number for Roma last season but now at Liverpool Loris Karius holds the no. 1 jersey.

Liverpool signed the 25-year-old Brazil global from Roma, smashing the world record for a keeper in a deal worth £68m.

"The club will announce Alisson's permanent number in due course, and that of fellow summer signing Fabinho, who has provisionally been wearing No.3 in pre-season".

Naby Keita is fit again after sitting out the last two games, and Daniel Sturridge has also returned to full training.

"It has been a great day which I had been looking forward to,"Alisson told Liverpool's official website on Tuesday".

Liverpool FC started their summer spending with the £39m addition of Brazil worldwide Fabinho from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco.

'Training for the outfield players is obviously different than for the goalies, but we want to see him as well against Napoli. "He is more a thinker than speaker but I speak enough already, so that's OK!" said Klopp of the goalkeeper.

Jurgen Klopp's side begin their Premier League season at home to West Ham on August 12.
