Klopp admits title challenge will be tough

Jurgen Klopp has revealed that challenging for the Premier League title will still be a tough prospect, despite his summer recruitments.

The Reds first game of the season is at Anfield against West Ham on Sunday, and the former Dortmund boss is envisioning a tough year ahead.

“The league will be difficult,” Klopp told the Liverpool Echo.

“It is not about judging our situation and thinking ‘wow, really good’.

“We need to be ready each week, not only for a few games. That is our challenge.”

Klopp masterminded the arrival of midfielders Naby Keita and Fabinho, including former Stoke playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri and goalkeeper Alisson who joined from Roma in a world-record deal.

Despite bolstering his squad, Klopp is wary of defensive issues heading into the opening weekend of the season.

Injured duo Joel Matip (hip) and Ragnar Klavan (hamstring) both missed Saturday’s 5-0 thrashing of Italian side Napoli in Dublin, and are doubtful for the Reds’ final pre-season clash against Torino at Anfield on Tuesday.

“Joel, we’ll have to see. Klavan, shouldn’t be too serious, but if Tuesday is too early I don’t know yet,” said Klopp.

“Maybe we will do some magic things with the formation on Tuesday. I don’t know how we will do it.”
