Liverpool Jurgen Klopp on ESPN Luck Index: Well deserve our luck more

Liverpool Jurgen Klopp on ESPN Luck Index: Well deserve our luck more”

Expectations are now rising that Liverpool could win a first league crown since 1990 and although Klopp says that overtaking Pep Guardiola's side is the goal, he added that his team are still very much the underdogs.

While the book makers still have City as extremely heavy favorites to repeat as league title champions, Liverpool have the second most favorable championship odds, and by a pretty wide margin.

"The plan is that we really go for it", Klopp said.

"We have to be more consistent".

"I was surprised about the numbers, of course".

The 21-year-old Nathaniel Phillips made three showings in the International Champions Cup in pre-season and started at Anfield in the club's final warm-up game ahead of the season opener against Torino.

"Nobody gives you anything back in that life for that".

In a break with recent history, Liverpool outspent their rivals during the summer as they look to improve on last season where they reached the Champions League decider.

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. We have to be more clinical in the right moments, more aggressive in the right moments. We can improve everything. "That's how it is, we know that", he told reporters at Melwood. We need to want more and fight more.

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

"They didn't lose any player. The champions are Manchester City", Jurgen Klopp continued.

"The [Community Shield] game against Chelsea was impressive from both sides, there's top quality". We are still Rocky Balboa and not Ivan Drago. We did not reach anything so far.

"We are still Rocky Balboa and not Ivan Drago, we are the ones who have to do more and fight more, that must be our attitude". We should try to win it this time.
