Klopp told Liverpool's official website on Monday: "The situation was even more hard a few weeks ago because of injuries, but Caoimhin Kelleher is now in his final steps for being completely back".

With Alisson now ruled out due to a calf injury and the Premier League transfer window shut, Liverpool have swooped for free agent Lonergan, who is set to put pen to paper to a short-term contract.

Joe Gomez has talked down suggestions that Liverpool will be "the team to beat" this season after their Champions League triumph. "You still don't want to have a situation where one goalie is fit, that's how it is but we have to see".

Klopp opted against strengthening this summer as his side chase a first ever PL crown this season.

"I don't want to make now [an] exact prognosis on when he will be back, but it will not be tomorrow for sure, so now then we have to see".

After last season's gripping duel for the title between Manchester City and Liverpool, most observers expected this campaign to be a similar tight race with little to choose between Pep Guardiola's Premier League champions and Juergen Klopp's European champions.

John Bolton said the U.S. supported a no-deal Brexit and added that Washington would propose an accelerated series of trade deals. He said the officials had stressed to him that Britain was ready to leave the European Union on October 31.

He said: "I think [the Community Shield] would have been nice but we lost the way we did, which was unfortunate".

"Obviously it's a label that's given now that we achieved what we did last season", he added. I don't think he wanted to sit only on the bench for the next couple of years, he made himself ready.

Yet while Andy Lonergan is set to join Liverpool to plug the gap in their keeper line-up, Klopp has offered warm words of support for 20-year-old Kelleher, as he closes in on a return to action after a wrist problem sustained during pre-season.

"We know Chelsea have a lot of quality".

"His experience is the main thing, he knows what he is doing".
