Klopp has great expectations Liverpool will deliver

West Ham news Tony Cottee

Most pundits and even some of the club's fans feel that after splurging over £175 million in the summer transfer window, the Merseyside outfit are among the title favourites for the Premier League and even the UEFA Champions League.

Merson believes Klopp's side will be someway short of reigning champions Manchester City - but not for a lack of effort.

"My own expectations are always pretty high: make the best out of it, get everything out of it, try to reach the highest", Klopp said. I thought about it for the preseason, but now we have to be in this championship mood.

"It is hard for us and the other teams too".

Joe Gomez looks the most likely to be ready to play alongside Van Dijk, although he too isn't 100% fit and he missed the recent game with Torino.

"We are still Rocky Balboa, not Ivan Drago", said Klopp. We are the ones that have to do more, to fight more, to do all these things. "That's how it is, we know that", he told reporters at Melwood.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood first look: Margot Robbie's Sharon Tate
Margot Robbie is giving us chills as she looks the spitting image of the late Sharon Tate in her latest upcoming role. Al Pacino , Damien Lewis, James Marsden and Dakota Fanning have also been added to the billing.

Alisson, Keita and Fabinho are expected to go straight into Liverpool's first-team, while Shaqiri offers an experienced alternative to the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino in attack. Then he felt ill so we sent him home again and I haven't seen him again. 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 have to be more consistent to be there and more clinical and aggressive in the right moments". "Let's go for it until we have no more air or oxygen, really go for it". We did not reach anything so far.

"The players know I have to choose one starting XI, but also they know that if during the whole season you don't have a strong squad and just a team, it can be very hard to be successful". We have to improve everything.

"Step by step, we come closer".

"The champions Manchester City did not lose any player and brought in (Riyad) Mahrez, so it doesn't make them weaker".
