Liverpool Jurgen Klopp on ESPN Luck Index: Well deserve our luck more

We don't have big issues but with these little things we need to think about if it is a risk or not and if it is a risk do we take that risk or not and all that stuff.

Liverpool FC signed AS Monaco midfielder Fabinho and RB Leipzig's Guinea worldwide Naby Keita to bolster their options in the middle of the park under Klopp. After an impressive pre-season, the Bolton-born defender could now make his competitive debut.

"We have to be more consistent, we know that".

"We can not go there and win just because we are Liverpool".

But the German insists they are still underdogs in the battle for the league crown, saying: "We are still Rocky Balboa and not Ivan Drago".

Apart from the aforementioned players, the only other confirmed absentee is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

"Again, you all ask me about the gap with City, it's nothing to do with City". That's the plan - to really go for it.

The Reds were one of the most exciting teams to watch in world football last season, thrilling fans with their own unique brand of expansive, high-octane football.

A recent survey revealed Liverpool were the Premier League's unluckiest club last season, with decisions costing them 12 points. In the last few years I sat here and had to defend our transfer behaviour: that we sold more than we brought in.

"We are still Rocky Balboa and not Ivan Drago, we are the ones who have to do more and fight more, that must be our attitude".

"Liverpool will give the title a go, they're the second best now, I think they've bought very well, very well", Merson told Sky Sports. We need to improve everything.

"We can improve our offensive and defensive play but it is nothing to do with City", he said. We were in finals, yes, but if we got to the final we should win it this time.

Following Loris Karius' horror show in the Champions League final, Jurgen Klopp decided he needed to bring in a new face to be his number one, so he splashed out £67 million on Roma's Brazilian first-choice Alisson Becker.
