"I think they'll win this one but toppling Manchester City for the title will be so hard".
Liverpool, who finished as runners-up in the Champions League last season, were forced to settle with a fourth placed finish in the league last season, which they secured during the final weekend of fixtures.
Earlier in the week Gary Neville had suggested that Liverpool should sacrifice their Champions League ambitions in order to focus on their Premier League campaign, but Morrison disagreed. I don't understand, do we play with kids or what?
"Pochettino came in at Tottenham and he had a better squad, but this has been a vision for Klopp and I don't think his squad was anywhere near as good as what Pochettino inherited at Spurs".
"How do you prepare a game when you don't focus on it?"
'I don't know what he means with that, to be honest.
"Actually I don't like to compare players but we had similar players and questions about Robbo (Andrew Robertson) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain", he said.

It will mark the start of an extremely busy period for Klopp's side, with seven matches in 23 days on the horizon, and Klopp admits squad rotation will be required in the coming weeks, although Adam Lallana (groin) and Dejan Lovren (pelvis) remain sidelined. "We will see exactly how we can do it", said the Reds manager when asked about possible rotation at his pre-match press conference.
"You always try to have your best game, but it is clear with the number of games".
"Then today another one, and we need to be ready".
In fairness, hard to beat as the best teams I played in were, it is tougher being a Liverpool defender now than under Benitez and Gerard Houllier. "Mauricio [Pochettino] has the same issues, we all have to work with what we've got".
Klopp's Reds are seen by many as the main challengers to City and Gotze - who had four years with the Liverpool boss at Borussia Dortmund before joining Guardiola at Bayern Munich - believes it will be a close battle.
