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

Pele, however, took to his Twitter page to predict that the Anfield club will win the EPL title, adding that Liverpool's new goalkeeper, Alisson and striker, Firmino could prove key for Jurgen Klopp's team.

During a glittering career, Shaqiri has won the Champions League and two Bundesliga titles while with Bayern Munich and was a league victor in Switzerland with Basel on three occasions. You need to have the right personality for that very hard job.

"I do not go to him every day and give him advice on how he scores 54 goals next season as actually I have no clue". That changes a lot of things, ' said Klopp of his counterpart.

The Switzerland worldwide has hinted at his potential importance for the coming campaign with Liverpool in an impressive pre-season, after signing from Stoke City. "He wants to play good football, as good as he is able to do".

But the German insists they are still underdogs in the battle for the league crown, saying: "We are still Rocky Balboa and not Ivan Drago".

"I can not train at all because of stomach muscle issues", Lovren told Croatian outlet Sportske Novosti. "We are the ones who have to do more and fight more - that must be our attitude".

However, Klopp disagrees with that view as he pointed out that Manchester City, the defending champions, have strengthened significantly as well.

One player who looks destined to make his bow for the club is Fabinho's fellow countryman Alisson, who made a £65million move from Roma during the transfer window.

Klopp, however, is realistic about his side's chances. How we react in the games and finish them.

"I don't think too much about what we have to do in general". The pressure is cranked up now - Liverpool fans will want a trophy in order to secure more than just bragging rights. "Joel did parts of training yesterday, like Joe did, so we will see how they are today".

Liverpool had a few gaps in their squad that needed addressing this summer: a reliable goalkeeper, a defensive midfielder, drive in midfield, and more depth in their forward line. "That is the case and a fact".
