Brazil legend Pele has backed Liverpool to end their arduous wait to win the Premier League title this season. I don't think about that because it's not what we have now, it's about what we make of it, how often we deliver, how often we bring ourselves in a mood to fight against all these Premier League teams who all want to have our points. That's the plan - to really go for it. At the end, I'm pretty sure we have a fantastic football team on the pitch and hopefully I have to make a few decisions.

"We want to - that's clear for ages - be the champion of England or winning the league. But what about the other clubs?", Klopp opined at his pre-match press conference on Friday. They didn't lose any players and they brought in [Riyad] Mahrez.

"The [Community Shield] game against Chelsea was impressive from both sides, there's top quality".

In Klopp's favourite instalment of the film series, Rocky was the underdog again when he faced the might of Soviet superpower Ivan Drago.

"Step by step, we come closer". Why should we do that? We did not reach anything so far. We were in finals. We were in finals, yes, but if we got to the final we should win it this time.

"Then we can talk".

"It is like scientists without trying to see if it really works. We have to be like Rocky".

"Dejan will not be available for the weekend, that's how it is", he confirmed.

"That's how it is".
