Liverpool boss Klopp: Big spending always going to happen

Loris Karius Alisson

Klopp accepts that the pressure is on at Anfield

The German manager has outsepnt everyone else in the Premier League this season, signing the likes of Alisson from Roma (£67million), Fabinho (Roma, £43.7million) and Xherdan Shaqiri (Stoke City, £13million).

"It is pretty normal that some point we would spent more money than other years". You dive in the water and now let's go for it until we don't have enough air. "That's all part of the business, but it doesn't decide anything", Klopp said about his club's blockbuster summer transfer window, which has drawn widespread praise. 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 are the ones that have to do more, to fight more, to do all these things.

Paul Merson believes Liverpool FC need to sign another centre-half to finally win their first Premier League title.

In the Sylvester Stallone film the eponymous hero wins a 15th-round knockout against remorseless 100-win heavyweight Ivan Drago, who had previously killed Apollo Creed in a fight in which Balboa was in his fellow American's corner.

If Matip and Gomez are unavailable, Nathaniel Phillips, who has performed well in pre-season, will likely partner Van Dijk.

"His scan was clear but he was feeling ill [when he came in for training] and we sent him home again". They have added Fred in a move, similar to their addition of Matic last summer to try and allow Paul Pogba to play further up the pitch and try to have an effect.

"We can improve everything: we can improve our offensive game, we can improve our defensive game". We got the Champions League and that was a success, but we can only improve two more places without being champions. The champions are Manchester City; they didn't lose any player and they brought in Mahrez, so that doesn't make them weaker.

"We have to be more consistent, we know that". But what about the other clubs?

'People ask me is it the best squad I've ever had?
