Liverpool have improved but need to be more clinical, Klopp says

Liverpool have improved but need to be more clinical, Klopp says

The charismatic coach has signed a host of new stars, including the likes of Brazilian number one Alisson, midfield star Naby Keïta, and experienced winger Xherdan Shaqiri.

The Liverpool FC manager has improved his Liverpool FC squad in the 2018 summer transfer window following a fourth-placed finish in the Premier League last term.

"We can improve everything: we can improve our offensive game, we can improve our defensive game".

At least three of their four summer signings could make their competitive debut on Sunday and a first experience of Anfield last Tuesday - in the 3-1 friendly win over Torino - would've boosted the team's morale and they will hope to use that home advantage again to inspire a first win of the season. That's the plan - to really go for it.

Pellegrini, who makes his league bow as Hammers boss at Liverpool tomorrow, said: "Maybe it is one of the most hard things for a manager, because all of them want to play and with better players, more problem". We want to be champions of England, but what about [Manchester] United and the other clubs?

"How could we say we have to be champions of the league, what about United or the other clubs?"

"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".

"The champions, Man City, didn't lose any players and brought in [Riyad] Mahrez". They were impressive against Chelsea, both sides were.

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

"We didn't reach anything so far". We were in finals.

"The league is exactly the same". We should try to win it this time.

Brazil legend Pele has backed Liverpool to end their arduous wait to win the Premier League title this season. It's like scientists without trying if it really works. "We have to be like Rocky!"

Speaking at his press conference, the manager confirmed that Dejan Lovren will not feature due to his late return after he helped Croatia reach the World Cup final, whilst Ragnar Klavan has also been ruled out with injury.

"Someone gave me the unluckiest team article", Klopp added. "We will see, we have no big issues but little things. Joel did parts of training yesterday, like Joe did, so we will see how they are today".
