Klopp didn't entertain the idea of signing an alternative player, and Liverpool will go into the season without an extra creative midfielder.

Liverpool reached the final of the Champions League last season, knocking out City on the way, but they were 25 points off the record-breaking pace set by Pep Guardiola's side domestically.

And with a series of key summer acquisitions, the Reds are seen as the most likely side to dethrone Manchester City.

"I went to watch Kepa Arrizabalaga at Athletic Bilbao 18 months ago, and at half-time, I looked at my host and asked who on earth he was".

Three early points, and for West Ham, a huge upset.

LFC fans can not wait to get this campaign underway. West Ham could miss out on seeing Fabinho however due to injury concern.

Rush is a big fan of the Egyptian.

Klopp insists, though, that Liverpool will do their utmost in 2018-19 to try and earn the club its first ever Premier League title.

They open their 2018/19 Premier League campaign with a home clash against West Ham United on Sunday (1800 GMT). "They are the best teams in the world and Liverpool is also one of them". Step by step, we have come closer.

The central defensive area is a bit of an issue for Klopp and Liverpool. A 4-3 win at Arsenal and 3-3 draw at Watford!

The Reds will score freely again this term but those two previous season starters suggests they could be vulnerable to letting one in too.

Elsewhere, Joe Gomez partners Virgil van Dijk in defence, while Jordan Henderson is also among the substitutes.

Arthur Masuaku, who fancies himself an aggressive, overlapping, dangling left-back could be exposed trying to cover Mo Salah's speed down the wing.

Of course, Pele could have easily said that he was backing Manchester City with their Brazilian quartet of Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho, Ederson and Danilo. So to sign someone of Alisson's calibre will definitely turn out to be a major coup in my opinion, regardless of the price tag, and it could be the difference between you winning a trophy and not winning one this season. "I think it's the year of Liverpool, Alisson and Firmino", Pele tweeted on Saturday.

"But how could we say that, what about the other clubs?"

Marko Arnautovic has been banging them in during pre-season and caused Liverpool problems at Anfield a year ago, striking the woodwork with the score still 0-0. Apart from the market prices, it's getting a bit insane, I think Alisson since he came to Europe back in Italy has been performing at a very high level.
