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

We had three points from City and they had three points from us. It's like scientists without checking if it really works.

And while Klopp would like that fortune to change he knows there are other factors which are more important.

"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".

"We have to be in a championship mode".

Klopp used a typically colourful analogy as he discussed the upcoming season ahead of Liverpool's opening game against West Ham, which takes place on Sunday, likening is team to the underdog boxer played by Sylvester Stallone in this year's battle for the title.

"In the moment someone thinks we reached already a point then that is when you start disappointing yourself and the people around you". "We have to be more clinical in the right moments". Win all of them and it's good, but it's pretty hard to do so.


"We can improve everything: we can improve our offensive game, we can improve our defensive game". You see what happens around and see how Wolverhampton act, how Fulham act, how Everton act, a lot of clubs are all ambitious. It is really hard, but it's not only hard for us. But it's not only hard for us, it's hard for the other teams as well.

"Could we go to a final again?"

"Their Achilles heel for me will be against the lesser teams and if they can break them down but I'm all over Liverpool, I think they're the team who will come second". "Let's go for it until we have no more air or oxygen, really go for it".

West Ham fans have grown to be frustrated in recent years following false promises from the board, with boiling point reached in a defeat to Burnley earlier this year where some fans invaded the field to protest, but the owners have finally put their money where their mouth is.

"Trent has had longer, which is good", he said. At the end, I'm pretty sure we have a fantastic football team on the pitch and hopefully I have to make a few decisions.
