Liverpool will compete for the Premier League title - Jurgen Klopp

Jürgen Klopp It's

Jürgen Klopp It's"pretty much impossible for Clyne to be fit for Liverpool's Premier League opener

Apparently the Germany worldwide midfielder is "locked in talks over a new deal" with Liverpool chiefs but no deal is on the horizon even though the Reds have promised to give him a pay increase if he extends his current deal beyond 2018. "We don't start a season by not having any ambitions", said Klopp.

"Yes, we will be playing for the championship", Klopp declared.

"He brings us the next coaching generation; we are not old but we are already that long in the business, so it's normal that you have routines, you use them and they are good".

Right-back Nathaniel Clyne and third-choice goalkeeper Danny Ward are both sidelined with back injuries but keeper Loris Karius, centre-back Dejan Lovren and Klopp's stand-in left-back last season James Milner are all available after minor niggles.

Liverpool take on Bayern Munich tonight in the Audi Cup and will test the Reds' credentials heading into the new season.

Of course, all 20 teams in the Premier League can focus on winning the title ahead of the new season and after Leicester City's success in 2015-16, why not?

Comoli, who spent around a year-and-a-half as a key component of the Anfield hierarchy between 2010 and 2012, thinks Klopp's side can continue to reject such gargantuan offers and would find Coutinho "extremely difficult" to replace if they did decide to let him go to the Camp Nou.

But unless Virgil Van Dijk - or a center back of similar ilk - arrives later this month, Liverpool's defense will once again be their Achilles heel. We saw that last season against all of the big boys as they had a superb record against the rest of the top six, but it was silly defensive errors against teams outside of the perennial giants which really cost them.

Coutinho has been on fire for Liverpool so far in pre-season and it does not seem that he will force a move to Barcelona as Klopp had claimed that the player feels happy and loves life at Anfield.
