Liverpool transfer news £35m Xherdan Shaqiri claim made by Sky Sports pundit

"Win all of them and it's good, but it's really hard to do so".

"We are still Rocky Balboa, not Ivan Drago".

Former Tottenham midfielder Sherwood believes Shaqiri is a great addition to the Liverpool FC squad ahead of their Premier League opener against West Ham United.

"We have to try and win every game because all of them are important".

And it is that quartet of signings that has led many experts to predict Klopp's exciting team will run champions Manchester City close this time around.

Good pre-seasons don't create excitement but they can certainly add to the positive vibe already there and wins over admittedly depleted Man City and Man Utd sides, a 5-0 thumping of Napoli and a 3-1 cruise against Torino on Tuesday, have added to the belief that Liverpool mean business.

Liverpool have not won the title since 1990 and boss Jurgen Klopp is still waiting for his first trophy after three years on Merseyside.

But as we know opening day games are never simple, often provide shocks, always unpredictable and most definitely full of incident.


"There are bigger problems in life than losing a Champions League final, so we all have bigger problems than losing a Champions League final". More clinical. More aggressive in the right moments.

"I think we now have the quality and a talented team who can play to win titles". We need to want more and fight more. That's the plan - to really go for it.

"Could we go to a final again?"

Jurgen Klopp revealed on Friday morning that Dejan Lovren and Ragnar Klavan are both out of the weekend's game while fellow centre-halves Joe Gomez and Joel Matip will be assessed at Melwood. "He wants to compete with the best teams in the world and he is going in the right way".

"The scan was clear, I heard you all know he had a scan so maybe at one point we can change that as well", Klopp said.

"We ask if it is a risk - and if it is a risk, do we take it?"

"I also stated after Coutinho's sale that the extraordinary fee presented an opportunity - for one summer at least - to outspend the rest of the Premier League". He has done a very good job and you can see that people have a lot of respect for him and his work.

"We have to be more consistent", Klopp said.
