Barcelona favourites against Liverpool, says Klopp

Barcelona favourites against Liverpool, says Klopp

"I think this is the spirit of a team that wants to be champions", Fernandinho told reporters.

They seem to be over the disappointment of the Champions League, they can focus on the league title now and they can put everything they have into winning the league again.

"One hundred points last season?"

"There are so many examples in life of what could happen if you give up too early, of what it means, of people who would not have survived if they had given up, that I don't have to use these examples".

While preparing his squad for the Champions League, the fight for the Premier League title is also very much on in an nearly neck race with holders Manchester City.

"I saw what he said, he is a amusing guy".

Guardiola has already called Klopp's current side the greatest Liverpool team he has ever seen, an extravagant claim but one which is supported, at least in part, by the statistics.

City goalkeeper Ederson was selected in between the sticks, while title challengers Liverpool have three of the back four with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk and Andrew Robertson selected alongside Aymeric Laporte.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is in a matchday squad for the very first time this season as Liverpool prepare to play hosts to Huddersfield Town at Anfield.

A trophy presentation team travelled to the Etihad Stadium and the Stadium of Light, each carrying a trophy and set of medals, as two stoppage-time goals secured the title for City.

On his own club's game against Arsenal on Sunday, the Leicester boss said: "We're looking forward to it and we're excited about it". "Yes, it's a main, a big target".

"We weren't always able to handle those hard moments, what happened with Stevie [Gerrard] was bad luck", Suarez admitted.

"Klopp said: "[It's] unbelievable. I saw that the whole season from the boys but still the season, however it ends up, is only the first step in that area. "We are not the finished article".
