Jurgen Klopp insists club 'are still Rocky Balboa’

West Ham news Jack Wilshere

The Reds have been installed as second favourites behind champions Man City following a summer spending spree that saw the club bring in goalkeeper Alisson, midfielders Naby Keita and Fabinho and attacker Xherdan Shaqiri.

With the 2018 summer transfer window closing on Thursday evening, the Merseyside club ended it having spent over £175 million on new player recruits - the highest of any team in the Premier League.

We are in for an entertaining 90 minutes at Anfield, so here is everything you need to know about the match... Win all of them and it's good, but it's pretty hard to do so. That's the plan - to really go for it. "We are the ones who have to do more and fight more - that must be our attitude".

"I don't think too much about what we have to do in general".

"We want to be, it's clear for ages, champions of England".

Klopp, who took over at Liverpool job in 2015 after guiding Borussia Dortmund to two Bundesliga titles, says he expects his players to fight to the last breath for the league title. At the end, I'm pretty sure we have a fantastic football team on the pitch and hopefully I have to make a few decisions.

Of course, Pele could have easily said that he was backing Manchester City with their Brazilian quartet of Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho, Ederson and Danilo.

In addition, the leaked "Galaxy" skin is also confirmed as an exclusive for Samsung Galaxy owners who download the game. There's an AMOLED screen on the watch, although we don't now know the screen size for either watch, or the resolution.

"We can not go there and win just because we are Liverpool". 'City - the champions - have not lost a player and brought in Mahrez. So they are top quality.

"We didn't reach anything so far". We went to finals. We were in finals, yes, but if we got to the final we should win it this time. In the league it's exactly the same.

"In the moment it's nothing, it's like scientists-[in theory] it really works".

"In the moment someone thinks we reached already a point then come on boys, that is when you start disappointing yourself and the people around you. We have to be like Rocky!"

Liverpool will be without Dejan Lovren and Ragnar Klavan for Sunday's opener, while checks will be made on the fitness Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip.

"Dejan will not be available for the weekend, that's how it is", said Klopp. Theirs is a season they expect will yield a glory never before seen.
