Klopp: Alisson has settled quickly at Liverpool

Liverpool should start the season with a win but West Ham can find the net too, says Dave Tindall, as he previews Sunday's match between the two clubs.

"It is no problem", insisted the Liverpool manager in an exclusive interview with Soccer Saturday.

"We want to be, it has been clear for ages, champion of England and winning the league but how can we say that?" It is a long time ago and a waste of time having that in your mind. Do we go to finals again?

The Brazilian midfielder joined Liverpool from Monaco in a £39 million deal and many fans pointed out that Pele had completely overlooked the 24-year-old - and they felt kinda sorry for him.

"We will see, we have not big issues but we have these little things where we have to think about if it's a risk or not and if it's a risk do we take it or not and all that stuff".

"And apart from catching balls, that helps massively". You need to have the right personality for that very hard job. "And obviously he has that".

"It's the start of the Premier League today", Pele wrote on Twitter.

Klopp has not considered offering his Egypt forward advice on how to repeat those record-breaking exploits. Football isn't played on paper, it's played on grass and you have to get results. Somebody told me [Liverpool were] the unluckiest team.

Asked what Liverpool must do to catch City, Klopp replied with a smile: "More luck".

Klopp, however, is realistic about his side's chances.

Jamie Carragher has explained that he thinks Liverpool have a single window of opportunity to win the Premier League due to their fleeting financial superiority.

"I think we now have the quality". It's about losing them in other games.

'It's about making the right decisions in the right moments.

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. "That is the case and a fact".
