Christian Pulisic slots his first home against Liverpool in Charlotte. Loris Karius watches on.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was left searching for answers after the Reds plummeted to a shock 3-1 loss to Borussia Dortmund in Charlotte on Monday in their opening match of the International Champions Cup.

While for Dortmund manager Lucien Favre there were many positives to reflect on after his side’s second big-scalp in a week after they defeated Manchester City 1-0 in Chicago on Saturday.

Here’s what both bosses had to say after the match.

Dortmund's Christian Pulisic had the Liverpool defenders guessing.

All eyes in Charlotte for the clash between Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund in the International Champions Cup were meant to be on Jurgen Klopp’s big spenders, but instead it was a sometime-Reds target who stole the show – US wunderkind Christian Pulisic.

The 19-year=old, who Klopp has often spoke of in glowing admiration, only came on at half-time but he tore the Merseysiders to shreds in a 27-minute spell beginning in the 66th minute where he first won and then converted a penalty, before he struck a thunderbolt passed a prone Loris Karius.

Pulisic then set up Dortmund’s third goal with a fierce strike pointlessly parried by the hapless Reds custodian straight to Jacob Bruun Larsen.

We take a closer look at the Dortmund star who just put a few more zeroes on his asking price.

Loris Karius has responded to his critics after making yet another error in Liverpool‘s 3-1 loss to Borussia Dortmund in the International Champions Cup.

The German fumbled Christian Pulisic’s shot in stoppage time which led to Jacob Bruun scoring Dortmund’s third goal of the game.

Karius’ performances have come under scrutiny ever since the Champions League final against Real Madrid where he made two major errors that led to the Reds’ 3-1 loss.

He lashed out to his ‘haters’ in an Instagram story, saying: “To those who take joy in seeing other people fail or suffer, I feel for you.

“Whatever it is that is happening in your life to hold this much anger and hate, I pray that it passes and good things come to you.”

And while Jurgen Klopp might have to the 25-year old’s rescue quite a few times now, it was former Los Blancos and Spain’s World Cup winning goalkeeper Iker Casillas who leapt to Karius’ defence after the pre-season game.

“This attack on Loris Karius, will it ever end? I’m talking about him like so many other goalkeepers,” Casillas wrote on Twitter.

“There are many more serious problems in the world… f***!

“Leave the kid alone. He is also a person. As we all are!”
