Klopp: We are the Rocky to City's Drago

Loris Karius was given a warm reception by the Kop

I don't think about that because it's not what we have now, it's about what we make of it, how often we deliver, how often we bring ourselves in a mood to fight against all these Premier League teams who all want to have our points.

Premier League football is back and West Ham have a new manager at the helm, bringing former Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini back to England.

He stated: "My expectations are always high".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp reveals that Alisson Becker has settled in quickly at the club ahead of his expected competitive debut against West Ham United.

It was pretty normal there would be one season when we would spend more money.

"The champions are Manchester City".

For each game this coming campaign, the cover will feature striking and iconic imagery of the Reds' players, while the programme itself will be packed with news, interviews and more.

"We are still Rocky Balboa, not Ivan Drago".

Hollywood icon Slyvester Stallone has essayed the role of Rocky Balboa in the Rocky series, which initially told the tale of a plucky southpaw who punched above his weight to become the heavyweight champion of the world.

And while Klopp would like that fortune to change he knows there are other factors which are more important.

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. Then he felt ill so we sent him home again and I haven't seen him again.

"The plan is that we really go for it", Klopp said. It's about making the right decisions in the right moment. We went to finals. We did not reach anything so far. But that all made sense - we had to create a squad which is strong enough and wide enough to cope with the Premier League and to be as successful as possible. "Joel did parts of training yesterday, like Joe did, so we will see how they are today". Step by step, we have come closer.

"We need more luck", he said.
