Liverpool 1 Brighton and Hove Albion 0 - flawless imperfection for the Reds

Chris Hughton has backed Liverpool to contend for the Premier League title

"Looks like (it)", said Klopp when quizzed if Alisson was the missing piece from his side that reached the Champions League final last season but lost thanks to two huge errors from Besiktas-bound stopper Loris Karius. Playing minutes is the most important thing.

With competition for places increasing at Anfield this season, the boss has plenty of options, not just with which players to pick but with the attributes they each bring to the game.

Bissouma added more zest to Albion's attacking efforts, but he was partly at fault for Liverpool's breakthrough midway through the first half. We have a lot of things to improve but it's clear that still winning on a not ideal day gives you different opportunities.

And that means potential opportunities for Origi and Solanke, who many fans may be forgiven for forgetting about after playing precious little football. "We will see what happens this week".

"Hendo (Jordan Henderson) would not have a big break and Fabinho would need time to settle in so it was always clear that Gini would be in the mix for that position".

Weight-loss drug Belviq seems safe for heart, study finds
Lorcaserin has been available in the USA for several years under the name Belviq, but it has yet to be approved for use in Europe. Tests for heart valve damage were done on 3,270 participants, but no significant differences in rates were identified.

The Reds played a four-man backline, but both Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson played most of the game as wing-backs or even as wingers at times.

Danish coach Thomas Gronnemark will work with the Reds on a part-time basis to help improve their proficiency from the touchline, having already been a presence in their pre-season preparations. He was good as the six but brilliant as the eight.

After studying his team's displays previous year, Klopp felt his players squandered possession too often from throw-ins. "If we can do that, then we will be fine".

However, Fabinho is yet to make his competitive debut for Liverpool FC and he was left out of the matchday squad for the Reds' 1-0 win over West Ham United.

"We're frustrated with the goal we gave away, but you have to learn from your mistakes - people have said today was a lot better than how we did here back in May last season", he continued.
