Liverpool must deliver on potential - Jurgen Klopp

Ярмоленко відновився після травми і готовий до матчу з

West Ham begin their Premier League campaign with a trip to Anfield to take on Liverpool on Sunday, and Pellegrini's men will have to be at their very best, if they are to have any chance whatsoever of returning to east London with anything to show for their efforts.

But after splashing out £170m in the transfer market this summer, hopes are high they can improve on last season's fourth place.

Liverpool reached the final of the Champions League last season, knocking out City on the way, but they were 25 points off the record-breaking pace set by Pep Guardiola's side domestically.

"We are still Rocky Balboa, not Ivan Drago", said Klopp. "We are the ones who have to do more and fight more - that must be our attitude".

"We did not reach anything yet, we have been in finals and if we get there again we should try to win it".

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.

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

Jones and his family send their deepest condolences and their thoughts and prayers to the Szabo family", Massena said. Police arrested Jones, of Kernerville, North Carolina, on Thursday and charged him with third-degree assault.

"I don't want to be the underdog".

"Dejan will not be available for the weekend, that's how it is", said Klopp. It's only the difference. 'You ask me about the gap with City. Yes, it has happened a few times but not because I wanted to be, but because it was a fact.

"I would have to chose the starting XI but also they know that if during the whole season if you don't have a strong squad, it is hard to be successful".

West Ham, meanwhile, have also enjoyed a summer of strong recruitment. We have to be ready. The last few years, I have sat here and had to defend our transfer behaviour, that we sold more than we brought in, but that all made sense.

"We want to - that's clear for ages - be the champion of England or winning the league". We jump into the water and we dive until we don't have oxygen anymore.

Liverpool FC lost 3-1 to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League final back in Kiev to miss out on a first trophy under German head coach Klopp.

Liverpool invested that amount on midfielders Naby Keïta and Fabinho, attacker Xherdan Shaqiri and goalkeeper Alisson Becker, who the home crowd will be most excited to see.
