Klopp accepts that the pressure is on at Anfield

Liverpool have looked impressive during their preparations for the new season, which they will begin by welcoming West Ham to Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

Jurgen Klopp says he has "no idea" what will happen regarding potential Liverpool incomings or outgoings in the final few days of the transfer window.

Karius has lost his role as Liverpool No. 1 to new signing Alisson, but after coming on to the pitch in Tuesday's friendly against Torino, the home fans applauded his entrance.

Liverpool have added Naby Keita, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson to their ranks this summer as Klopp sought to improve the overall depth of his squad.

Jose Mourinho has only made the addition of one major signing in Fred to a squad that finished 19 points behind fierce rivals and champions Manchester City.

"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".




With Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan all carrying injuries, Virgil van Dijk cruised through the first half alongside Under-23 defender Nathaniel Philips.

The Liverpool captain only returned to training on Sunday, but Klopp did not rule him out of contention to feature against West Ham on the weekend.

'[Jordan] Henderson is full of power but hasn't been back long. The boys are not all on the same level, you can see that. "It is a brilliantly run club in terms of getting money for players and also in the transfer market".

The Reds put four past United in an earlier pre-season fixture and followed that up with a deconstruction of the Serie A side in Dublin as Klopp's men aim to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title this season.

He stated that his former club does not have a chance in competing with Liverpool and City for the Premier League title due to their summer spending.
