This exciting Liverpool squad is just what the Premier League needs

Liverpool transfer news £35m Xherdan Shaqiri claim made by Sky Sports pundit

Liverpool have now spent big in a bid to challenge Manchester City domestically this term, bringing in four new arrivals for around £170m.

The Brazilian goalkeeper, who will have "A. Becker" on the back of his jersey, is set to make his Premier League debut on Sunday against West Ham United.

"There are bigger problems in life than losing a Champions League final, so we all have bigger problems than losing a Champions League final".

And it is that quartet of signings that has led many experts to predict Klopp's exciting team will run champions Manchester City close this time around. That's all really hard. It's hard for the other teams as well.

"We have to be in a championship mode".

"I know a lot of people because we were that active in the transfer window", he said.

"We can't go there and only because we are Liverpool we will win the game there".

Minor issues could influence Klopp's selections in central defence, with Joe Gomez, Ragnar Klavan and Joel Matip carrying injuries of varying degrees.

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. I played with pain and those three games killed me.

"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".

"Trent has had longer, which is good", he said.

Jurgen Klopp has strengthened the Reds' squad during the summer transfer window, and will be looking to hand out a number of debuts this weekend. Ragnar, no real chance, he didn't train.

"The good thing is from the first day he has been very stable and calm, but then again we already knew a few things about his personality when we signed him", said Klopp of his new goalkeeper.

"Whether they have the capacity to catch a formidable City or not - and no matter how much opposition managers speak about Klopp having to start delivering a major trophy - it is better to be part of the conversation than on the outside listening in".
