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

Liverpool welcome Manuel Pellegrini's men to Anfield on Sunday afternoon to start a campaign in which they have been widely tipped to offer the stiffest challenge to champions Manchester City.

Liverpool may have invested £170 million ($217m) in fresh faces but that only gives them a one-year window for Premier League title success, says Jamie Carragher, with further transfer sprees unlikely.

"In the moment someone thinks we reached already a point then that is when you start disappointing yourself and the people around you. I think this club needs to have this ambition to win titles, to play for titles, and to be one of the best teams in the world", the 26-year-old continued.

"We know that. More clinical".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes his players have to summon the spirit of Rocky Balboa if they are to close the gap to defending Premier League champions Manchester City.

Liverpool also confirmed fellow summer signing Fabinho has been given the No. 3 squad number, having also been handed that number temporarily for the summer friendlies. Yes, we should try to win it this time.

Of course, Pele could have easily said that he was backing Manchester City with their Brazilian quartet of Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho, Ederson and Danilo.

"We want to be, it has been clear for ages, champion of England and winning the league but how can we say that?" They didn't lose any player. We have to improve everything.

"Of course, I would have liked to become a Champions League victor, and I would not have returned the title if shown various indiscretions". We saw the game against Chelsea, they are top quality. We should try to win it this time. We are the ones who have to do more, to fight more, to do all these things.

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.

We know what Pele thinks and when Jurgen Klopp was asked about his side's chances of glory this season, he knows exactly what Liverpool need to work on. Trent, a bit longer in, which is good; [Henderson] in and full of power, but not too long in - three or four days - but it's Hendo so you always think about him.
