Liverpool gear up for Premier League opener against West Ham


With everything that has occurred at the other title challengers, this really is a huge opportunity for Liverpool to challenge for the Premier League title and getting a good start from the 4 games they open the season with (West Ham, Crystal Palace, Brighton and Leicester), would certainly be a great platform to build from.

'I think for us it was pretty normal there would be one point where we spend more money.

The Reds have brought in the likes of Alisson Becker, Fabinho and Naby Keita and are now expected to mount a strong challenge for the Premier League title. Italy have imposed a deadline of next Friday (17th) but other major leagues including La Liga will have until 31st August to conclude their business which means that star players of Premier League teams could yet depart for pastures new but without their sides being able to replace them.

"We need more luck", he said. We got the Champions League and that was a success, but we can only improve two more places without being champions. What about United? What about the other clubs? We had three points from City and they had three points from us.

"We have to try to reach the highest, that is always my expectations".

"We have to be more consistent to be there and more clinical and aggressive in the right moments".

"If you ask me whether it is the best squad I have ever had or whatever I don't think about that because it is not about what we have now it is about what we make of it, how often we deliver, how often we bring ourselves in a mood to fight with these Premier League teams who want to have our points".
