Speaking about the upcoming Premier League season and Liverpool’s objectives for it, Jurgen Klopp told Sky Sports: “It’s always like this: the main target is to qualify for the Champions League.
“It’s really difficult enough already. When you reach that and then still have time to fight for the title, then you do that. But for the majority of the season you fight for the Champions League.
“That will be a massive fight (for the Premier League title), oh my god. That’s the Premier League. I have no idea who will make the race, it looks like City in the end will be the champion.
“If we hadn’t have been champion I think they would’ve won it five or six times in a row which is really crazy in this country. But our target is to play the best possible season for us. What can we squeeze out? Let’s see. Really looking forward to it.”
City just managed to edge Liverpool to the Premier League title last season, winning it by the margin of just one point in the end.
Pep Guardiola has strengthened his side with the big acquisitions of Erling Haaland and Kalvin Phillips, making them strong contenders even before the season begins.
