Klopp has great expectations Liverpool will deliver

But having spent £170million this summer on midfielders Naby Keita and Fabinho, goalkeeper Alisson and Xherdan Shaqiri Liverpool are seen as the genuine rivals to City for the title.

They open their 2018/19 Premier League campaign with a home clash against West Ham United on Sunday (1800 GMT).

"Make the best of it".

"It was pretty normal there would be one season when we would spend more money", Klopp said.

In that scenario, Umesh Yadav can be left out with Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami and Hardik Pandya handling the pace duties. Intermittent rain delayed the start of the second Test between India and England in London on Thursday.

"The plan is that we really go for it (the Premier League). That's all part of the business, but it doesn't decide anything", Klopp said about his club's blockbuster summer transfer window, which has drawn widespread praise. "We are the ones who have to do more and fight more - that must be our attitude". The last few years I've had to sit here and defend our transfer behaviour, we sold more than we brought in. We can't go there and only win because we are Liverpool.

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.

"Concerning the gap with Manchester City, but we had three points from them last season and they had three points from us".

The defender featured against Rangers in the Europa League last week, and having made such an impression, the Gers boss wasted no time in securing his services on a four-year contract.

"We have to be more consistent, we know that. I have not seen him [again] so far so we will see about his availability".

"Step by step, we come closer". We can improve everything. But what about the other clubs? We got the Champions League and that was a success, but we can only improve two more places without being champions.

"A lot of people think because of the transfer window we will (challenge more) - but that's not how it is".
