Liverpool boss Klopp: We chose Alisson over Oblak

Deflection – Some Man Utd and Liverpool Fans React To Jose Mourinho's Reds' Spending Comments

The Premier League is not yet upon us, but, Manchester United's Jose Mourinho could be accused of already stirring up the plot-lines for a season's worth of mind-games.

And although Mourinho is interested to see Jurgen Klopp go back on his assertion that he would never go on large spending sprees, he expects great things from his rivals this season. And that's it in this year where obviously a few things happen on the goalkeeper position.

"You, I think have to be fair and now you have to demand and say the team with investments you are making last season, that you made in January, that you make now".

Sturridge could be in line to start the Premier League campaign at home to West Ham on Aug 12, with Roberto Firmino and new goalkeeper and fellow Brazil worldwide Alisson only rejoining the squad at next week's training camp in France. I can not really remember what I said but I know what I said about the Pogba transfer.

Asked whether he had to win the Premier League this season Klopp said: 'I don't think so. It is a free world and he can say whatever he wants.

"If he is happy about our transfers even better, but we know that it does not mean you win automatically whatever".

With Alisson, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri, Klopp has strengthened his starting lineup and substitutes' bench significantly, and the hope is they can challenge Man City.

Trump predicts a ‘terrific’ GDP report at US Steel plant
Trump credited his 25 percent tariff on imported steel for the factory's expansion. "We just opened up Europe for you farmers". President Trump declares American steel is back, during a visit to the Steel Coil Warehouse in Granite City, Illinois.

However, Liverpool's eye-catching activity in the transfer market means they are now the second favourites to win the league this season behind Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

The 30-year-old was largely at fault for both of the goals that Neil Lennon's side conceded in last night's second-round Europa League qualifier against Asteras Tripolis at Easter Road.

'We want to deliver constantly. We will see that.

"When I was at Chelsea, we had Didier [Drogba], we had [Nicolas] Anelka, we had [Salomon] Kalou, we had [Florent] Malouda".

"I feel like, in football, you always have to prove yourself as well".

"I'm not sure if it is an experience we will have again - go there and put an elbow to the goalkeeper, put their goalscorer down like a wrestler in midfield and then you win the game".
