Jurgen Klopp reveals how Liverpool can challenge Man City for the title

Expectations are now rising that Liverpool could win a first league crown since 1990 and although Klopp says that overtaking Pep Guardiola's side is the goal, he added that his team are still very much the underdogs. We don't have big issues but with these little things we need to think about if it is a risk or not and if it is a risk do we take that risk or not and all that stuff.

"The champions Manchester City did not lose any player and brought in (Riyad) Mahrez, so it doesn't make them weaker". So they are top quality.

"If you ask me whether it is the best squad I have ever had or whatever I don't think about that because it is not about what we have now". You see how Fulham, Wolves and Everton act - and I'm not forgetting anybody - they are all ambitious.

"We are still Rocky Balboa and not Ivan Drago, we are the ones who have to do more and fight more, that must be our attitude".

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has hailed Chelsea's ability to bounce back from poor seasons and then challenge for the Premier League during the next campaign. We did not reach anything so far. It's hard for the other teams as well. I think it's the year of Liverpool, Alisson and Firmino!'. "We have to be like Rocky". I thought about it for the pre-season, but now we have to be in this championship moment.

"Ragnar (Klavan) no real chance, Joel (Matip) did parts of training like Joe (Gomez) did, we will see how they are today".

Klopp is yet to win any silverware at Liverpool despite reaching the finals of the 2016 League Cup and Europa League and last season's Champions League, believes Liverpool need some good fortune.

"The window is only one way closed so we cannot buy any more but we can sell not in Premier League - but it is clear that a few things will happen", he said. We had three points from City and they had three points from us.
