City fans expect perfect Pep prep but Reds will rival reigning champions

Michael Owen predicted where his former club Liverpool will finish n the Premier League this season, when writing a blog for BETVICTOR, suggesting that Jürgen Klopp's side will be Manchester City's closest challengers come what May.

'My own expectations are always pretty high, we'll have to make the most of it (the pressure after spending a lot).

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

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.

"Nobody gives you anything back in that life for that". They can still win trophies when you think they've got problems.

The ESPN Luck Index is a comprehensive research project commissioned by ESPN in partnership with Intel, carried out by the University of Bath, to examine how the Premier League would look if luck were not a factor. People ask me already if it's the best squad I've ever had. "We are the ones who have to do more, fight more, and that must be our attitude". "Let's go for it until we have no more air or oxygen, really go for it". I know that they have very good moment with a lot of trust in what they are doing, getting to the Champions League final last season.

The Reds topped the outlay charts following the big-money arrivals of Alisson, Fabinho and Naby Keita, with Xherdan Shaqiri the other player signed for less than £35 million. We have to improve everything.

Klopp used a typically colourful analogy as he discussed the upcoming season ahead of Liverpool's opening game against West Ham, which takes place on Sunday, likening is team to the underdog boxer played by Sylvester Stallone in this year's battle for the title. "The champions are Manchester City", Jurgen Klopp continued. They were impressive against Chelsea, both sides were.

"We are still Rocky Balboa and not Ivan Drago, we have to fight more and do more things". We did not reach anything so far.
