And, despite Klopp's side dominating much of the remainder of the match, they were undone late on when Pulisic struck a second and Jacob Bruun Larsen sealed the result.

Christian Pulisic comes off the bench to score two and create another as Borussia Dortmund recover from a 1-0 deficit to beat Liverpool 3-1 in pre-season.

Dortmund ace Pulisic was impressive during his side's 3-1 win over Liverpool in their pre-season meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina yesterday.

There was an early scare for Liverpool when Loris Karius rushed off his line to clear the ball, only for it to go straight towards Maximilian Philipp, who fired wide from long range.

Deep into stoppage time, the US global beat his defender in the box and Loris Karius parried his shot into the path of Jacob Bruun Larsen, who finished into an empty net.

After the game Karius took aim at his critics with an Instagram post by writing: "To those who take joy in seeing other people fail or suffer, I feel for you".

Karius did however find an advocate amid the dissenting murk, with Iker Casillas offering a few words of support on Twitter later that same night.

"Will this attack on Loris Karius ever end?"

"Maybe tomorrow or the day after tomorrow we will know more, but in this moment we only know that it was too painful for him to carry on". Whatever it is that's happening in your life to hold this much anger and hate, I pray that it passes and good things come to you.

Coming three days after Liverpool sealed a world-record deal to sign his eventual replacement, Alisson, this will have compounded the German's issues.

And Casillas has taken to social media to defend Karius, claiming there are more serious problems for the world to be worrying about.

"Leave the kid alone". He's also a person.

Liverpool's next pre-season friendly is against Manchester City at the Metlife Stadium in NY on Wednesday.
