Diehard fans usually greet the major football clubs' pre-season tour of far-off countries with a distinct slice of cynicism, perceiving their run as pure money-makers for already wedged pockets, but often the matches conjure up moments of excellence for them to stand up and be counted. I want to do it differently.
Having signed Virgil van Dijk for a reported £75million in January and with a deal in place to spend £52.75m on Naby Keita, Liverpool have subsequently splashed out £40m on Fabinho, £56.25m on Alisson and £13.2m on Xherdan Shaqiri.
Man United have spent around £70m so far this summer on Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant, but it has been strongly reported that Mourinho is looking to add at least two more players to his squad before the transfer window closes in two weeks.
Despite this, Klopp admits he is unsure whether Liverpool will compete for the Premier League title this season and highlighted the stiff competition from the likes of City, Manchester United and Tottenham.

Sturridge could be in line to start the Premier League campaign at home to West Ham on Aug 12, with Roberto Firmino and new goalkeeper and fellow Brazil global Alisson only rejoining the squad at next week's training camp in France. "Because the interest rates are very low", said Mourinho.
"The problem is you have to invest well and, honestly, I think they (Liverpool) did very well, because every player they bought are quality players".
Of their first 15 games, seven are at home (where they recorded an unbeaten run last season) with only one of those seeing them play against a member of the Premier League's top six in Manchester City - at least six home wins is a realistic target. So, you'd expect them to be a lot stronger this season.
