Liverpool FC signed AS Monaco midfielder Fabinho and RB Leipzig's Guinea global Naby Keita to bolster their options in the middle of the park under Klopp.

Ahead of Sunday's Premier League opener against West Ham, Klopp says they'll be going for the title this season.

While City have not spent as much as Liverpool in this window, they have been among the biggest spenders in the English top-flight for a few years now and a majority of their squad looks likely to remain the same in the years to come.

'It all makes sense, we had to create a squad which is strong enough and wide enough to cope with the Premier League.

Klopp admits there could be further departures from Anfield, with the transfer window still open in Spain, France and Germany.

"The great thing about Chelsea under Roman Abramovich is whenever you think they have got problems, they are the one club in the top six who can fight back straight away and win a league". That is likely to play a big part in the early weeks of the season, as players fitness issues provoke tough decisions from managers on who starts, who rests, at least until the global break in September.

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.

"We are still Rocky Balboa, not Ivan Drago". I thought about it for the pre-season, but now we have to be in this championship moment.

"We have to be more consistent, we know that".

"We want to be, it has been clear for ages, champion of England and winning the league but how can we say that?"

"My own expectations are always pretty high: make the best out of it, get everything out of it, try to reach the highest", Klopp said.

"Again, you all ask me about the gap with City, it's nothing to do with City".
