'We have to be like Rocky' - Klopp comments on Liverpool's title chances

Ex footballer Paul Merson enjoying day two of the Cheltenham Festival at Cheltenham Racecourse

"I don't think Klopp has to win a trophy". "This is my fourth year in the Premier League now so I know how Liverpool play", he said.

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

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes Manchester City will regain their Premier League crown this season, and go on to dominate the league for years to come.

We'll find out over the next nine months or so whether Pele is right... "We have to consider whether it's a risk or not and if it's a risk, whether we take it or not".

Alisson, Fabinho and Naby Keita make up the quartet of new arrivals at Anfield this summer and Shaqiri said: "We have a big team and a lot of players with quality so I think that the coach can rotate". People expect that we win, and we expect the same, but we know that between now and then there are 95 brutal minutes, and we have to be ready for that.

"We do not have to play much better in the games against City - if we perform like we did a year ago, that would already be good". We can improve everything. 'You ask me about the gap with City. City got three points from us, we got three points from them.

Excitement as English Premier League kicks off Friday
Ayew, who has 11 goals in 49 appearances for Ghana, scored 11 times for Swansea last season as he impressed in a struggling side. Champion Manchester City had already signed winger Riyad Mahrez for a club-record GBP60 million from Leicester City .

They've also enjoyed feasting on West Ham's defence in recent games, winning this fixture 4-1 back in February and also sticking four past the Londoners in their last two trips south.

"We have to be in a championship mode". We jump into the water and we dive until we don't have oxygen anymore. I have a very good relationship already established with the three forwards particularly - Sadio, Roberto Firmino and Salah. 'City - the champions - have not lost a player and brought in Mahrez.

"It has to be our ambition to compete with the best and to go on the field against whoever we are playing with the intention of dominating the game".

But the German insists they are still underdogs in the battle for the league crown, saying: "We are still Rocky Balboa and not Ivan Drago".

"We are the ones who have to do more, fight more, and that must be our attitude".
