Jurgen Klopp feels Alisson will settle into the Premier League quickly

"It's the start of the Premier League today", Pele wrote on Twitter. We beat Manchester City in the league and the Champions League last season, so I think we can win everything in the world. The same question can be asked, though perhaps not quite so forcefully, of Karius' replacement at Liverpool, 25-year-old Alisson Becker, who was the world's most expensive goalkeeper...

"We have to be more consistent".

On the eve of the 2018/19 Premier League season, Jurgen Klopp has brushed aside any suggestions of his Liverpool side being termed title favourites, with a hilarious reference to the Rocky movie franchise.

Liverpool also confirmed fellow summer signing Fabinho has been given the No. 3 squad number, having also been handed that number temporarily for the summer friendlies. We have to try to win every game because all of them are important.

Of course, Pele could have easily said that he was backing Manchester City with their Brazilian quartet of Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho, Ederson and Danilo.

"We can be everything we want to be". They didn't lose any player and they brought in (Riyad) Mahrez, so that doesn't make them weaker.

Liverpool have not won the League title since 1990. More clinical. More aggressive in the right moments. We need to want more and fight more. We can improve everything. We should try to win it this time. He has been at clubs who have picked up 13 trophies during his time with them and - at £13.75m from Stoke - is an exciting addition to Liverpool's array of attacking talent.

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. "We have to consider whether it's a risk or not and if it's a risk, whether we take it or not". You need to have the right personality for that very hard job.

"I also stated after Coutinho's sale that the extraordinary fee presented an opportunity - for one summer at least - to outspend the rest of the Premier League".

"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.
