Jurgen Klopp Compares Liverpool to Rocky, Manchester City to Ivan Drago

Jurgen Klopp Compares Liverpool to Rocky, Manchester City to Ivan Drago

Felipe Anderson's arrival has got West Ham fans excited (Picture: Getty Images)When is Liverpool vs West Ham?

Liverpool have fitness concerns in midfield and defence, as centre-backs Jöel Matip and Joe Gomez and midfielders Fabinho and Jordan Henderson face late fitness tests ahead of the match at Anfield.

And it wasn't just a simple "yes" reply from Pele.

He decided to make a prediction ahead of the big kick-off.

He replied: "It's the start of the @PremierLeague today". I don't think about that because it's not what we have now, it's about what we make of it, how often we deliver, how often we bring ourselves in a mood to fight against all these Premier League teams who all want to have our points.

Obviously, Pele is backing two of his compatriots for glory.

Federation Internationale de Football Association probably will look into the timing of the window and make changes for next year as a collective but there were many logistical issues this year including the World Cup and a later start to preseason for a large number of players at the elite European clubs, with those going to the latter stages only returning to training this week, days before the season started, which itself seems significantly earlier than usual following an worldwide tournament.

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

"The plan is that we really go for it". We have to be more aggressive in the right moments.

"A lot of people think because of the transfer window we will (challenge more) - but that's not how it is". They wanted to invest money, as have most clubs in the Premier League, and I think we have improved the squad.

"We have to be more consistent". Then we can talk but at the moment it is nothing.

"We need more luck", he said.

"I only want from us that we fight, not that we are the underdog".

Liverpool reached the final of the Champions League last season, knocking out City on the way, but they were 25 points off the record-breaking pace set by Pep Guardiola's side domestically.

"In the league it is exactly the same - we finished in the Champions League places in fourth but there is still second and third which would be better than four". We jump into the water and we dive until we don't have oxygen anymore. They brought in [Riyad] Mahrez, so that doesn't make them weaker. They were impressive against Chelsea, both sides were.
