Klopp: We are the Rocky to City's Drago

Klopp: We are the Rocky to City's Drago

And the arrival of the 25-year-old in addition to the signings of Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri have seen Klopp's Liverpool tipped to compete with defending champions Manchester City for the 2018-19 title. We should try to win it this time. We got the Champions League and that was a success, but we can only improve two more places without being champions. We have to be more aggressive in the right moments.

"We can improve everything: we can improve our offensive game, we can improve our defensive game". I don't want to forget anybody but they are all ambitious.

"Ragnar has no real chance, Joel did parts of training like Joe did, we will see how they are today".

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.

"Somebody told me we were the unluckiest team".

Michael Owen predicted where his former club Liverpool will finish n the Premier League this season, when writing a blog for BETVICTOR, suggesting that Jürgen Klopp's side will be Manchester City's closest challengers come what May.

He was very comfortable on the ball five minutes in and it meant we could show for it and he was starting most of our play, so it was a very good performance from him".

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

The Kop boss also noted that City haven't lost any players from last season's dominant side and insists they shouldn't underestimate other Premier League sides who intend to impress.

Karius followed that up with a tumultuous pre-season and another comical error against Tranmere Rovers in a friendly. "I don't know exactly how - fancy dress for the players or whatever!"

"Dejan is unavailable for the weekend".

"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". We had three points from City and they had three points from us.
