Jurgen Klopp Compares Liverpool to Rocky, Manchester City to Ivan Drago

West Ham news Ryan Fredericks

"Make the best of it".

"It's pretty normal that there would be one point where we spent a bit more money. We had to create a squad which is strong enough and wide enough to cope with the Premier League".

Liverpool experienced a busy transfer market with Jurgen Klopp welcoming four fresh faces to Anfield in the form of Alisson, Keita, Fabinho and Shaqiri.

"We want to - that's clear for ages - be the champion of England or winning the league, but how could we say that, what about the other clubs?"

"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".

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.

Pochettino Without At Least 6 Players For Newcastle Trip
Despite no new arrivals for the first season at their brand new stadium, Pochettino feels they can still go on to do great things this term.

"We will see, we have not big issues but we have these little things where we have to think about if it's a risk or not and if it's a risk do we take it or not and all that stuff".

Chicharito added: "The manager called me before the World Cup because he knew my situation was hard at the end of last season, and he made me feel very good".

Joe Gomez looks the most likely to be ready to play alongside Van Dijk, although he too isn't 100% fit and he missed the recent game with Torino.

But he said his team would also need a change in luck if they are to catch last year's runaway champions Manchester City. We know that. We have to be more clinical in the right moments, we have to be more aggressive in the right moments. I thought about it for the preseason, but now we have to be in this championship mood.

But the German on Friday insisted they were still underdogs in the battle for the league crown, saying: "We are still Rocky Balboa and not Ivan Drago". We went to finals.

"We will try to reach the highest place". In the league it's exactly the same. What about United? What about the other clubs? Step by step, we have come closer.
