West Ham's Manuel Pellegrini faces juggling act to keep players happy

Klopp accepts that the pressure is on at Anfield

Klopp accepts that the pressure is on at Anfield

The Reds topped the outlay charts following the big-money arrivals of Alisson, Fabinho and Naby Keita, with Xherdan Shaqiri the other player signed for less than £35 million.

The daunting prospect of facing Liverpool away from home in your first match in charge is increased due to the fact that the Reds have last season's Premier League top-scorer Mohamed Salah at their disposal, who is ready to tear the league up again.

"Make the best of it".

"The scan was clear, I heard you all know he had a scan so maybe at one point we can change that as well", Klopp said. I am always aiming as high as I can and if we can put West Ham in the Champions League why not? 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.

"We have to be in the championship mode", he said.

"Lucas has had a good career and has the quality to be in this squad and I hope he will be a success here".

"It is hard to win every game, if we see how Wolves, Fulham or Everton act, they are all ambitious".

Despite spending £250million on new players in 2018, Klopp believes City are still the team to beat and used the Rocky IV film to emphasise his point. "Let's go for it until we have no more air or oxygen, really go for it".

5 killed after plane nosedived in California parking lot
The plane hit a vehicle but nobody in the auto was hurt, said Stephen Concialdi, spokesman for the Orange County Fire Authority. Santa Ana fire and police and Orange County Fire departments respond to the scene of a deadly plane crash in a parking lot.

"But how could we say that, what about the other clubs?"

'They are top-quality. We are still Rocky Balboa, not Ivan Drago. It's about making the right decisions in the right moment.

"Top six, top four is the aim, as high as we can".

"We need to be a competitive team on Sunday and after that next week".

The 21-year-old Nathaniel Phillips made three showings in the International Champions Cup in pre-season and started at Anfield in the club's final warm-up game ahead of the season opener against Torino.

"The league is exactly the same".

"Step by step, we come closer".
