Klopp discusses Liverpool’s Premier League rivals

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been discussing the merits of his Premier League rivals as he aims to bring the League title to Anfield for the first time in 30 years.

Klopp led Liverpool to one of their best campaigns in recent memory last season, and while they finished fourth in the Premier League, they also had a memorable run to the Champions League final.

The Reds gave now massively upgraded their midfield and goalkeeping departments, areas that were clearly an issue for Klopp, spending the best part of £200 million to bring Naby Keita, Fabinho, Alisson and Xherdan Shaqiri to the club.

However, despite being one of the biggest spending sides in Europe, Klopp has warned that their fellow rivals have strengthened their squads too, and has even suggested there could be some surprises:

“Yes our job is to improve the team every year, to improve the football every year and if you do that then the chances become bigger,” he told ESPN FC.

“But the thing is that the other teams don’t sleep, so Man City are still a fantastic team and United will have again a fantastic team… Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham.

“Tottenham pretty much complete together, Arsenal, they lost Wilshere, that’s it, and otherwise they only brought players in, so strong side obviously.

“Everton is for big things, Wolverhampton can be a surprise.

“It’s a difficult league, so we don’t have to dream too much and we don’t.”
