The Reds have invested £67 million ($87m) worth of faith in the Brazil worldwide after losing trust in last season's goalkeeping options.

Carragher is among those feeling confident, with additions suggesting that Liverpool will be in the mix for the Premier League crown as positive foundations from 2017-18 are built upon.

"Everyone's talking about Liverpool and with good reason", Carragher told Sky Sports.

New Liverpool signing Alisson Becker spoke on his desire to perform as well as Salah did last season.

Something like this had never happened to me. "My first goal will happen in a natural way, I'm not thinking about that". It helps when you see the fans and club like you, the feeling is completely different.

"The goalkeeping situation has given everybody a massive lift".

Loris Karius was a figure of fun for the majority the summer having made two horrendous mistakes in the Champions League final, which gave the European Cup to Real Madrid for the third consecutive season. But it's happened in a game which will, unfortunately, be remembered for a long time.

"Simon Mignolet and Karius are good goalkeepers but not great goalkeepers". This will provide him will a whole load of self-belief heading into the new campaign, although he is expected to be Jurgen Klopp's second choice keeper, behind Brazilian shot-stopper who was brought in for a world record goalkeeper fee of £66.8m.

"No matter how much you pay, not just for a goalkeeper but even an outfield player, you don't know what they're going to be like, particularly when they come from overseas, and how they're going to react in the Premier League". The former Newcastle and Bolton defender is now a highly regarded Liverpool scout, and according to the Liverpool Echo, recommended that the club take a look at Phillips when the defender was about to move to America to take a football scholarship with a university in 2016.
