  • Matip injury concerns Klopp

The Reds were dealt a blow after 20 minutes when Joel Matip was forced off with an injury.

Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he is a keen admirer of Christian Pulisic but says that it is unlikely that Liverpool FC will be able to sign him from Borussia Dortmund. It's not cool. Things like this can happen, but you don't want them to.

Now, Klopp has responded directly to suggestions that the Reds could move to sign Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund this summer.

Liverpool came close to doubling their lead but Sheyi Ojo was denied by the crossbar. According to Liverpool, Karius suffered a concussion in the final.

Klopp told a news conference on Saturday: "I like him".

"I will go step by step and I think these next days will help me to increase my fitness level and to get in better shape".

For all their exciting wingers, and there are many of them, Dortmund are lacking that killer touch in front of goal.

Last season in the Bundesliga, Dortmund scored 64 goals, 13 of which were scored by Aubameyang who finished as the club's top scorer despite leaving in January. He is the number one for Brazil and then there is the fee.

Pulisic later nailed a driven shot from the post past Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius.

The USA worldwide, linked with Chelsea and Manchester United, underlined his talent with a man of the match display and two goals for Borussia Dortmund in their 3-1 win over Liverpool in Charlotte on Sunday.

Dortmund came into the clash on the back of a 1-0 win over Manchester City on Friday evening, with Mario Gotze netting the victor.

Liverpool transfer target Pulisic scored twice - with a contentious penalty and then a clinical finish late on - before setting up a third goal for Jacob Bruun Larsen in stoppage time as Dortmund claimed a second Premier League scalp in the space of less than 48 hours.
