Liverpool transfer target Inaki Williams scores vs Reds for Athletic Bilbao

07 August 2017

A busy pre-season schedule concludes on Saturday for both Liverpool and Athletic Bilbao as they finish their preparations for the forthcoming campaign.

Jurgen Klopp's men, though, are coming off a 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid in the Audi Cup final, which they lost in the penalty shootout.

The other positive for Klopp from Saturday evening's triumph was another fighting display from Alberto Moreno, who is desperate to illustrate he can still be useful at Anfield.

Liverpool face an extremely busy August thanks to their two-legged Champions League play-off against Hoffenheim.

Jordan Henderson, Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho all missed out with various ailments. Has he done enough to start at Watford next weekend?

"This puts us in the centre of attention, this is great for the public perception of our club", said the Hoffenheim boss. Dembele is renowned for his quick feet, dribbling and he is much much faster than Coutinho.

Trump replaces chief of staff Priebus with general Kelly
Pete Rouse, who served as an interim chief of staff under President Barack Obama, has the shortest term at 104 days. As Secretary of Homeland Security, Kelly has played a key role in the border security of the Trump Administration.

He looked the real deal and, at £12million, he looked set to be one of the bargains of the Premier League era.

"Beyond that we will monitor and wait and see".

Klopp's charges were fully in control but almost allowed Bilbao to equalise when Williamsled a three-on-two break but Ager Aketxe, sliding to reach a low cross, could only fire wide. Hopefully we can make a lot of these fans happy, because they made us happy. Dejan Lovren was unable to cut out a through ball in search of Williams and the winger picked up the loose ball, burst into a pocket of space 15 yards out and side-footed into the bottom corner as Liverpool's back-line scrambled to recover.

The friendly was held at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin and completed a good build-up to 2017/2018 for Liverpool.

Although losing Lallana represents a significant setback for Liverpool, the fact that the 29-year-old won't be available for a significant period does ease Klopp's selection headache somewhat. "And I rate him as a coach". Solanke's cross from the right almost forced an own goal as Oscar De Marcos sliced wide in the six-yard box.
