Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has insisted his Reds side can win the Premier League title as they prepare for their first game of the new campaign. The German takes the Anfield giants to Arsenal on Sunday as they bid to land a first title for 27 years.
Returning to the top four will be the club’s main goal with no European football on the menu on Merseyside this term, Liverpool will be able to focus just on the league, similar to 2014 when the Reds finished second behind Chelsea.
However, Klopp is not ruling out the big prize, insisting ‘everything is possible’ ahead of the first match of the season.
“We will all have problems and it’s about finding the solutions. We have tried to prepare for that in this pre-season,” he said.
“We want to fight for everything. We’re not looking for excuses. In this moment everything is possible.”
Klopp currently has six strikers at his disposal, which he admits is too many. Mario Balotelli and Christian Benteke have been heavily linked with moves away from the club after failing to live up to their respective price tags.
However, Klopp insists Liverpool will not be handing out ‘presents’ to domestic rivals, and that they will be proactive between now and the closure of the transfer window.
He added: “Having six strikers is too comfortable. But we won’t be giving presents to other clubs.
“It’s about timing. If you are involved in perfect game then it’s a good position to be in for the next game.
“At 11pm on August 31 is the time for everyone. Until then we will be ready to react to different scenarios.”
