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

"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?"

However, Klopp disagrees with that view as he pointed out that Manchester City, the defending champions, have strengthened significantly as well. So, we cannot buy any more but we can sell not in the English Premier League. After an impressive pre-season, the Bolton-born defender could now make his competitive debut.

"It's pretty normal that there would be one point where we spent a bit more money".

"The champions are Manchester City".

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.

'They are top-quality. We are still Rocky Balboa, not Ivan Drago.

"We have to be more consistent".

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.

Regardless of his downplaying with the media, fans are hopeful that the German manager will bring home the club's first league title since 1990 this season.

Klopp accepts the pressure ahead of Sunday's opening match against a much-changed West Ham United.

Paul Merson believes Liverpool FC need to sign another centre-half to finally win their first Premier League title.

"You ask me about the gap with City". We were in finals. We did not reach anything so far.

Signed as an outcast from Arsenal's squad, Lucas Perez has endured a hard time in the Premier League since his arrival two seasons ago and made just a handful of appearances in his maiden campaign, then returning to Deportivo last season.

"A lot of people think because of the transfer window we will (challenge more) - but that's not how it is". We have to come in a championship mood.

"We can improve everything: we can improve our offensive game, we can improve our defensive game".
