Jurgen Klopp rejects advice to prioritise Premier League title

Liverpool FC are aiming to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season after they finished in fourth place in the table last term and without a trophy. If they can make it five wins out of five for only the third time at the start of a season then title talk would ignite.

"They've played West Ham, Crystal Palace Brighton and Leicester; this is their biggest test. As a United fan, that's a worry because it is still that mentality of "anyone but them".

The modern centre-back at an elite, Champions League club needs to multi-task, capable of playing a high line with the pace and strength to regularly deal with one-on-one situations.

"A lot of people watch our games from the Champions League, it's our job to do the best we can do in all these games", said Klopp.

"I think they'll win this one but toppling Manchester City for the title will be so hard".

"I think the back four a year ago was Joe Gomez right back, Lovren and Joel Matip in the middle, and Alberto Moreno at left back".

"I think Tottenham should have probably have signed more players in the summer".

Joyce Becomes a Tropical Storm
The ocean is moving inland ahead of Florence as storm surge begins to flood the Carolinas coast, according to the NHC. Florence is now churning through the Atlantic, only a few hundred miles off the coast of Wilmington, N.C.

Florence strengthens to hurricane, continues trek toward southeast U.S.
Governor Roy Cooper declared a State of Emergency on Friday as Tropical Storm Florence continues to approach the east coast. The immediate threat this weekend will be large swells and unsafe rip currents along the East Coast due to the storm.

US East Coast braces as Florence forecast to intensify into major hurricane
The storm expected to keep building in strength before making landfall on Thursday, the US National Hurricane Center said . The National Weather Service has placed parts of New Hanover County under a coastal flood advisory through midnight.

And there's no reason why the Reds can't go one better and win the competition for a sixth time.

"How would that work?"

Klopp, munching on a biscuit on the platform, earlier hit back at comments from Gary Neville in his press-conference.

"Also Pep will be going for it. Man City will be going for the Premier League, trying to win it twice in a row, and they will be trying to win the Champions League".

'Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that works. How do you prepare for a game when you don't focus on it?

And the ex-Spurs and Liverpool player believes their defensive improvements should stand them in good stead ahead of tomorrow's fixture. That would be amusing. I don't know exactly what it means but to focus on one competition can only be if maybe you are already out of the competition almost.

"But past year, we had no chance to focus on one competition, we had to qualify for the Champions League". The club he's more interested in.
