Klopp: We are the Rocky to City's Drago

Expectations are now rising that Liverpool could win a first league crown since 1990 and although Klopp says that overtaking Pep Guardiola's side is the goal, he added that his team are still very much the underdogs.

"We want to be, it's clear for ages, champions of England".

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.

Klopp, whose longtime number two Zeljko Buvac left abruptly towards the end of last term, fell back one of his favourite analogies saying Liverpool were Sylvester Stallone's fictional boxer Rocky Balboa rather than his Soviet opponent Ivan Drago. They brought in [Riyad] Mahrez, so that doesn't make them weaker.

"We are still Rocky Balboa, not Ivan Drago", said Klopp.

He's returning as Bond in the as-yet untitled 25th film in the series , set to begin filming late in 2018. MGM will distribute the film domestically while Universal Pictures will handle global distribution.

The Kop boss also noted that City haven't lost any players from last season's dominant side and insists they shouldn't underestimate other Premier League sides who intend to impress.

"In the moment someone thinks we reached already a point then that is when you start disappointing yourself and the people around you". We did not reach anything so far. We can't go there and only win because we are Liverpool. What about United? What about the other clubs? We were in finals. "We have to be ready to fight". Do we go to finals again? We should try to win it this time.

"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. That's the plan - that we really go for it". In the league it's exactly the same.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has announced that his centre-half Dejan Lovren will miss out on the Reds season opener against West Ham on Sunday after his late return to Merseyside following a post-World Cup final break. Now, it's all nothing.
