This exciting Liverpool squad is just what the Premier League needs

"I came here to try to win titles". The same question can be asked, though perhaps not quite so forcefully, of Karius' replacement at Liverpool, 25-year-old Alisson Becker, who was the world's most expensive goalkeeper...

"It is one of the best clubs in the world. I think they had a very successful season, a good season, last time, but we didn't win a trophy". An imperial armoury that creates air for the expectation to achieve great things this season. People expect that we win, and we expect the same, but we know that between now and then there are 95 brutal minutes, and we have to be ready for that.

Klopp didn't entertain the idea of signing an alternative player, and Liverpool will go into the season without an extra creative midfielder.

Three early points, and for West Ham, a huge upset.

"We want to compete with the biggest teams like Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Barcelona".

Liverpool also came awfully close to signing Lyon captain, Nabil Fekir.

"I also stated after Coutinho's sale that the extraordinary fee presented an opportunity - for one summer at least - to outspend the rest of the Premier League". I said it 500 times already; when Daniel is fit, nobody doubts him. I know the quality of this team and you can see it on the pitch that I have started working well with them and passing well with them. That has to be our goal this season - to focus on every game and not think about what can happen in the winter or next summer. That's it. We lost them in other games.

"I think the club is totally different now to when he arrived". Trent, a bit longer in, which is good; [Henderson] in and full of power, but not too long in - three or four days - but it's Hendo so you always think about him.

The Reds have been keeping a really high line in their warm-up matches and teams have been getting in behind on occasion so the Austrian could benefit.

"Everybody is very focused on that and with the transfers the manager has done you can see that he wants to go forward and to make progress".

Lovren and Henderson have only just returned from extended holidays after the World Cup, with Fabinho suffering from illness after undergoing a scan on Thursday.
