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

Liverpool finished 25 points behind champions Manchester City last season, and Klopp was asked at news conference on Friday what needed to be done to close the gap this time around after a summer in which Fabinho, Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri and goalkeeper Alisson joined the club.

"It's the start of the Premier League today", Pele wrote on Twitter.

"I'm sure we'll still have a pretty fantastic football team on the pitch, but I'll have to make a few decisions". "I think it's the year of Liverpool, Alisson and Firmino!"

"We know that. More clinical".

On the eve of the 2018/19 Premier League season, Jurgen Klopp has brushed aside any suggestions of his Liverpool side being termed title favourites, with a hilarious reference to the Rocky movie franchise. Win all of them and it's good, but it's pretty hard to do so.

"In the moment someone thinks we reached already a point then that is when you start disappointing yourself and the people around you". We want to be, it's clear for ages, champions of England.

Nasa counts down to launch of first spacecraft to 'touch Sun'
While granting us life, the sun also has the power to disrupt spacecraft in orbit, and communications and electronics on Earth. In all, the spacecraft will make 24 elongated laps around the Sun, closer than the orbit of Mercury, the innermost planet.

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

"We can improve everything: we can improve our offensive game, we can improve our defensive game".

They've also enjoyed feasting on West Ham's defence in recent games, winning this fixture 4-1 back in February and also sticking four past the Londoners in their last two trips south. It's another case of "wait and see" and trust in Klopp - but one that most Liverpool fans will be content with.

Regardless of his downplaying with the media, fans are hopeful that the German manager will bring home the club's first league title since 1990 this season. I want this season's title race to be more spicy and I think it will be.

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. "I don't know exactly how - fancy dress for the players or whatever!" That changes a lot of things, ' said Klopp of his counterpart. You see what happens around and see how Wolverhampton act, how Fulham act, how Everton act, a lot of clubs are all ambitious.
