Liverpool boss Klopp: Big spending always going to happen

He decided to make a prediction ahead of the big kick-off.

He replied: "It's the start of the @PremierLeague today". It's Hendo though, you always think about him.

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.

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

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.

We'll find out over the next nine months or so whether Pele is right... Then he felt ill so we sent him home again and I haven't seen him again.

"We have to be more consistent, that's how it is. We know that", Klopp continued. "Let's go for it until we have no more air or oxygen, really go for it". We can improve everything.

However, Klopp disagrees with that view as he pointed out that Manchester City, the defending champions, have strengthened significantly as well.

Alisson featured twice in pre-season for Liverpool, against Napoli and Torino. That's the plan - to really go for it.

"They did it enough times last season, but 25 points is a lot to make up in one season".

"The [Community Shield] game against Chelsea was impressive from both sides, there's top quality".

Klopp says Liverpool are "like Rocky Balboa not Ivan Drago" - a reference to the Hollywood movie where the unfancied boxer must overcome a formidable rival.

Klopp, who took over at Liverpool job in 2015 after guiding Borussia Dortmund to two Bundesliga titles, says he expects his players to fight to the last breath for the league title.
