Klopp: We have a new midfielder (it's Milner)

Klopp: We have a new midfielder (it's Milner)”

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that the club will continue to look at potential new signings until the transfer window closes on August 31.

Liverpool rounded off pre-season with a convincing 3-1 win over Athletic Bilbao at the Aviva Stadium and the pleasant weather made for pleasant photography.

Liverpool travelled to Dublin with Philippe Coutinho, who had a back problem, Daniel Sturridge (groin), captain Jordan Henderson, who was rested as a precaution, and Adam Lallana, who is out for three months but does not require surgery to correct thigh damage.

Liverpool kick off their new season away to Watford in the early game next Saturday lunchtime.

'Alberto Moreno is 100 percent back, which is very nice after a really hard year. He, of course, still has to adapt because he's not here too long, but you can already see what a threat he is going to be offensively.

"That means Milly is free from midfield, so without being in the transfer market we have a new midfield player, which is nice".

Roberto Firmino won and scored a penalty for Liverpool before Inaki Williams equalised for Bilbao, with Klopp then choosing to make wholesale changes save for goalkeeper Simon Mignolet at half-time.

The quality in Jurgen Klopp's side eventually won out with goals from teenagers Ben Woodburn and Dominic Solanke sending the massive Irish crowd home very happy. It's all about others clubs.

Klopp said: "It was really special today, I have heard about it - that Dublin is quite an LFC city - but it is completely different to feel it".

Despite Origi's wayward opening, Liverpool was dominating possession and eventually took the lead when Firmino buried a penalty in the bottom-left corner after being bundled over in the box by Inigo Lekue in the 21st minute.

Just before the hour mark, Solanke produced a risky run and pulled the ball back to the edge of the box where Woodburn twisted it onto his left foot and smashed home.

"And then the next game, and then the next game, and then I'll think about how we can do this".
