Klopp stopped deadline day transfer, injury blow, star on title race

Klopp stopped deadline day transfer, injury blow, star on title race

Klopp accepts the pressure ahead of Sunday's opening match against a much-changed West Ham United.

There is certainly an air of optimism at Anfield and fans will be expecting Liverpool to improve upon their fourth-placed finish in the Premier League from last season and no doubt they'll be desperate to go one better following their Champions League final heartache against Madrid. You need to have the right personality for that very hard job.

Naby Keita and Fabinho add midfield power, and Xherdan Shaqiri could be a shrewd acquisition backing up the strikers.

You'll hear confirmed team news from Anfield here and across our media channels first at around 12.30pm, but we already know bits and bobs about who's likely - and unlikely - feature.

Jurgen Klopp said Liverpool "have to be" Rocky Balboa in this season's Premier League title race and compared Manchester City to Ivan Drago.

"Many people will say that these things happen, but if that is the message we are sending to our children, that nothing is out of bounds and it's all about winning, then I will be glad to leave this planet in 40 years".

Alisson hopes he can prove to be a value-for-money purchase at Liverpool - just like superstar forward Mohamed Salah.

"I do not expect that [returning the trophy] from him [Ramos], I only expect that he gives more thought to his assessment of certain situations".

It's still a huge ask to close a gap of 25 points but Liverpool have strengthened intelligently and only five points separated the two sides in the second half of 2017/208.

One player who looks destined to make his bow for the club is Fabinho's fellow countryman Alisson, who made a £65million move from Roma during the transfer window.

Of course, Pele could have easily said that he was backing Manchester City with their Brazilian quartet of Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho, Ederson and Danilo. We have to try to win every game because all of them are important. They didn't lose any player and they brought in (Riyad) Mahrez, so that doesn't make them weaker. "We have to be more clinical in the right moments. That is the case and a fact".
