Improved Liverpool need to be more clinical for title tilt, says Klopp

Improved Liverpool need to be more clinical for title tilt, says Klopp

Liverpool should start the season with a win but West Ham can find the net too, says Dave Tindall, as he previews Sunday's match between the two clubs.

Shaqiri said: "For me, nothing is impossible". "This is my fourth year in the Premier League now so I know how Liverpool play", he said.

It will be interesting to see the second most expensive goalkeeper, Alisson, accompanied by Dutch centre-half - Virgil van Dijk, the most expensive defender in the world.

Jurgen Klopp's men are under pressure to mount a serious title challenge this season after splashing out big money on Alisson Becker, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita this summer with many pundits believing Liverpool will be Manchester City's closest rivals this campaign.

"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". It was only a check-up and the scan was clear, but he felt ill when he came back so we sent him home again.

Liverpool 3-0 West Ham: The Reds have an excellent home record against West Ham having lost just one of their last 45 league games against the Hammers at Anfield.

"I came here to win titles and, of course, I have that winning mentality".

The buzz is good at West Ham too, compared to this time previous year. It has to be our goal to try to be the best in the league.

"We want to compete with the biggest teams like Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Barcelona".

They also have a new manager in Manuel Pellegrini, the former Manchester City boss. That has to be our goal this season - to focus on every game and not think about what can happen in the winter or next summer. He has done a very good job and you can see that people have a lot of respect for him and his work.

The Reds have been keeping a really high line in their warm-up matches and teams have been getting in behind on occasion so the Austrian could benefit.

Trent Alexander-Arnold returned sooner than expected from his extended holiday after the 2018 FIFA World Cup and should start ahead of Nathaniel Clyne at right-back.
