We are the ones that have to do more, to fight more, to do all these things.

"The window is only one way closed so we cannot buy any more but we can sell - not in Premier League - but it is clear things will happen", he said.

"At the end I'm pretty sure we will have a fantastic football team on the pitch".

"Why should we do that?" It's always my expectation to reach the highest level but it doesn't work all the time, ' Klopp said. That's the plan, that we really go for it. "We have to be like Rocky".

The Hammers endured a hard campaign last season, ending up in 13th position in the Premier League table, but many are predicting that they will be challenging for the European spots this term, with the arrival of nine new faces.

Lionel Messi named as new Barca captain
Messi, who has been at Barcelona since the age of 13, is one of four players to be given new responsibilities by the Catalan club. Messi, who was named Barcelona's second captain in 2015, will now replace Barca's former icon, Andres Iniesta in the role.

And while Klopp would like that fortune to change he knows there are other factors which are more important.

The German manager has outsepnt everyone else in the Premier League this season, signing the likes of Alisson from Roma (£67million), Fabinho (Roma, £43.7million) and Xherdan Shaqiri (Stoke City, £13million). Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is only the latest sports figure to reference the classic tale from 1987 of the American Rocky Balboa (portrayed by Sylvester Stallone) upsetting the heavily favored Soviet Ivan Drago (played by Dolph Lundgren) in Moscow on Christmas Eve. Being a Premier League player you need to tick a few boxes; as a goalkeeper it helps if you are calm.

"Step by step, we come closer". We got the Champions League and that was a success, but we can only improve two more places without being champions. "But what about the other clubs?", Klopp opined at his pre-match press conference on Friday.

However, Klopp disagrees with that view as he pointed out that Manchester City, the defending champions, have strengthened significantly as well.

"We have to be more consistent". We need to improve everything.
