The Reds have signed Brazil global Fabinho in a £39m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco and RB Leipzig's box-to-box midfielder Naby Keita in a £57m switch.

However he expects to be without a number of players when his team host Manuel Pellegrini's Hammers due to a series of what Klopp described as "little niggles", or minor injuries. How could we say we have to beat everyone? "We have to consider whether it's a risk or not and if it's a risk, whether we take it or not". Klopp, in looking at the 25 point gap that his side needs to close on the reigning champions Manchester City, analogized his club to Rocky and City to Drago. "That is the plan, that we really go for it". At the end, I believe we will have a fantastic football team on the pitch.

Chelsea's delay in appointing Maurizio Sarri as their new coach in place of Antonio Conte until a few days into their pre-season preparations and speculation regarding the long-term future of Courtois that saw them yesterday spend a world record on a goalkeeper in the shape of Kepa from Bilbao as Real Madrid finally secured the Belgian keeper, formerly of their city rivals Atletico. We are the ones who have to do more, to fight more, to do all these things.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the Brazilian worldwide was in line to make his competitive debut for the Reds on Sunday, but has been unable to shake off a knock picked up during his side's friendly win over Torino earlier in the week.

However, Klopp disagrees with that view as he pointed out that Manchester City, the defending champions, have strengthened significantly as well. It's not true. City were a fantastic team previous year and they brought in Mahrez. So they are top quality. We need to want more and fight more. That must be our attitude. Why would we do that?
