CL Failure Could Lead To League Glory For Liverpool

Manchester City’s UK£50m Puma deal to cover all City Football Group clubs

Manchester City’s UK£50m Puma deal to cover all City Football Group clubs

I think back to back titles is an obsession for them.

You put the players in this Liverpool squad down on paper and Klopp could pick two very competitive teams that would be capable of winning matches in the Premier League and Champions League on a consistent basis.

Having knocked City out of the Champions League last season, while also beating them in domestic action, Liverpool are expected to mount a strong challenge for the title as they look to end their 29-year wait to be crowned kings of English football. Mahrez bolsters City´s already impressive array of attacking talent and, while Guardiola missed out on Italy midfielder Jorginho, who instead joined Chelsea, the champions´ combination of youthful swagger and world-class talent still makes them favourites to reign supreme again at the end of the season. "I keep saying that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues but I keep feeling that second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

Jurgen Klopp has added midfielders Nabi Keita and Fabinho, forward Xherdan Shaqiri and goalkeeper Alisson to his squad to the tune of £140m.

"They seem so intent and we spoke to Kompany and Walker, they seem so intent to not drop below the mentality and standards they achieved previous year".

Wright continued: 'Liverpool proved last season that they are City's kryptonite, beating them three times - and they've strengthened better than anyone this summer.

"I think back to back titles is an obsession for them".

God of War Gets New Game Plus on August 20
The update will be released later this month, and the new mode will be available to those who have completed the story campaign. Today, Sony Santa Monica revealed when New Game Plus will arrive, and it's going to be here in just a couple of weeks.

He tweeted: "Diego Godin's agent approached Manchester United this week when the team was in Cagliari, saying the player was keen to come to Old Trafford and a deal could be done, so United made an offer for the agent to take to the Atletico board".

"United should be challenging", insisted Neville.

"I don't think just because they haven't signed a centre-back we should be sat here thinking 'we'll let Manchester United off the hook they shouldn't be challenging this year.' A club thats spent the money they've spent in the past few seasons and the players they've got".

Manchester United have a front six of Mata, Lingard, Lukaku, Rashford, Martial and Sanchez.

"In midfield, they've got Matic, Fred and Pogba".

Liverpool have invested heavily over the summer as they look to pose a challenge to last season's runaway champions, Manchester City, but the same can't be said for United.

Pre-season has clearly been a frustrating time for Mourinho, while a perceived lack of respect for leading his side to second spot last term has got under his skin.
