Liverpool news Jurgen Klopp insists the club need to summon the fighting spirit of Rocky

Liverpool news Jurgen Klopp

In his pre-match press conference on Friday, ahead of Liverpool's season opener against West Ham on Sunday, Klopp said Liverpool spent so much to build a squad with the depth necessary to be genuine title contender.

Jurgen Klopp says he has high expectations for Liverpool's ability to challenge for the Premier League title after spending the most of any of his rivals in the close season.

While this may be the strongest Liverpool squad in a quarter of a century, the dominance of Manchester City domestically, and the sheer quality in the Champions League means that the FA Cup and League Cup are still Jurgen Klopp's best chance to end the Reds trophy drought.

The Hammers come to Liverpool hoping to improve on their 13th-place finish in the 2017-2018 season. Now it is important to be very good again and to achieve that last thing. We conceded the last goal in the last second of the period so you arrive to the dressing room with another task if you lose just 1-0. A once-great prospect whose last hurrah came in the late 1980s making a comeback against the latter-day heroes is a more accurate reflection of where Liverpool now sits.

"We knew before the game that our start was very hard", he said.

It featured everything we've come to expect from a stellar Liverpool display. Later today, we face West Ham who could give us problems as they will be looking for something to prove after a lacklustre season last time out.

Of their potential to combine this season, Keita added: "It's like with all players, you develop a good understanding on the pitch and I've certainly done that with Dan".

"We played really well in the first half but they changed it round at halftime and pushed us in the second half".

Why Jose Mourinho failed to sign Yerry Mina
Manchester United are not expected to sign Diego Godin, who is expected to sign a new contract with Atletico Madrid . Under Premier League regulations, Chelsea and Everton were given an extra two hours to finalise negotiations.


For me, watching Liverpool's Klopp and their front 3 last season was an absolute pleasure and not many teams were able to cope with them.

"We can not be anything different than the challenger because we have not won anything since I've been in (charge), a long time".

Manchester City might not have it all their own way again this season.

"I think Liverpool played better than us".

We have expectations as well, so that is already enough to feel completely different before a Premier League game before all the pre-season games.

"We can not be anything other than "the challenger" because we didn't win anything since I don't know when - certainly since I am here". To win the FA Cup he'll need to figure out what has been preventing them getting to the latter stages. "I think it's the year of Liverpool, Alisson and Firmino!" tweeted the Brazilian great.

And the supporters positivity was echoed by their Chilean boss, who said: "I will try to play attacking football and score a lot of goals because, throughout my career, I have always been a manager who plays offensive football and tries to attack".
