  • EPL: Why Alisson refused to take Liverpool's No.1 shirt from Karius

And Alisson's teammates already realise just how important he can be in this department.

This clash in Dublin will provide supporters with their first glimpse of Alisson in action in a Liverpool shirt, as Klopp continues to prepare for the season ahead.

But the Brazilian duo returned to action today in Liverpool's penultimate friendly before the start of the Premier League season next weekend.

Summer signing Fabinho came off the bench to replace the former England worldwide.

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. They will then start playing for real on August 12, with the Premier League regular season opener at home against West Ham United. He has used that time to have a strong pre-season for the Reds, and is keen to help them bounce back from their Champions League final disappointment after sitting out much of 2017/18 with injury.

James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum netted early goals for Liverpool before Mohamed Salah, Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno added to the scoreline after half-time.

He added that he would consider a visit to Washington but noted there must be "necessary conditions", without further explanation. Then, National Security Adviser John Bolton said on Wednesday that plans for an autumn visit would be delayed until 2019.

The interplay between the front-three was also impressive.

He was one of several players, including Roberto Firmino, who missed the U.S. pre-season tour due to World Cup commitments.

Liverpool: Alisson 6, Clyne 6, Gomez 6, Van Dijk 6, Robertson 6, Wiljnaldum 7, Milner 7, Keita 7, Salah 8, Mane 7, Firmino 7.

It was a stroll for Liverpool from that point, but fans of the club still had plenty to be optimistic about.

Whereas Firmino is fain to drop deep and leave space for Mane and Salah, Sturridge spends far longer facing the opposition goal.

Liverpool released an official statement announcing Alisson's "provisional" number, and confirmed that the goalkeeper will be assigned an official number in due course.
