We did not reach anything so far.

"Ragnar (Klavan) no real chance, Joel (Matip) did parts of training like Joe (Gomez) did, we will see how they are today".

"We can not go there and win just because we are Liverpool. We have to be like Rocky".

Klopp insists, though, that Liverpool will do their utmost in 2018-19 to try and earn the club its first ever Premier League title.

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

The Reds have drastically strengthened this summer with the additions of Alisson, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita but Klopp claims they still need to work on their consistency as well as aggression and might even need more luck to launch a serious title bid.

"It doesn't decide anything".

"It's pretty normal that there would be one point where we spent a bit more money".

China's foreign film quota allows a maximum of around 34 foreign films to be imported into the country per year. Government censors has been erasing the images that mocked Xi on social media.

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

Speaking in his press conference ahead of the big kick-off in the Premier League, Klopp told the media: "We are still Rocky Balboa, we're not Ivan Drago".

"Step by step, we come closer".

"The window is only one way closed so we cannot buy any more but we can sell - not in Premier League - but it is clear things will happen", he said.

Klopp, who took over at Liverpool job in 2015 after guiding Borussia Dortmund to two Bundesliga titles, says he expects his players to fight to the last breath for the league title. They brought in [Riyad] Mahrez, so that doesn't make them weaker. "We are the ones who have to do more and fight more - that must be our attitude".

"More clinical in the right moments, more aggressive in the right moments".

Klopp is yet to win any silverware at Liverpool despite reaching the finals of the 2016 League Cup and Europa League and last season's Champions League, believes Liverpool need some good fortune.

"But you all ask me about the gap to City and what we have to do".
