Jurgen Klopp reckons at least six teams will rival his Liverpool team for the Premier League title this season – and even backed a surprise outsider to mount a challenge.

Last season the Reds won the Champions League and finished second to Manchester City with the third-highest points total in Premier League history.

They will be hoping to go one better in the English top-flight this campaign but Klopp feels that City won't be the only team battling his side again for league honours.

And while the German manager expects the Big Six to all be among the title contenders, he has also backed big-spending Merseyside rivals Everton to deliver for the Goodison Park faithful.

“I'd say there are at least six teams in contention,” he told Sky Sports .

“Everton, for example, have tried to stay very ambitious. They have done a lot and I think there are still maybe a couple of players to come in. They had a good team last year and they have improved, with very interesting signings.

“I don't know where people get the idea that Arsenal will not challenge, that Chelsea will not challenge with Frank [Lampard] bringing complete excitement to the club.

“Okay, they cannot really be busy in the transfer window, but after years when all the young boys were on loan, now they finally bring them back and get the benefit of that.

“It's like it's made for a transfer ban. Now [Tammy] Abraham and all these other guys come back and it's a fantastic team.”

Me, I am looking forward to watching Tottenham! If they can get the players they want in, I am hopeful Poch can finally break the curse!
Which players are they looking for, it is almost deadline, if they think they can get away with what they did last season by not recruiting any player, they will find out that Poch is not Moses who strikes rock and water comes out.
I expect them to get Lo Celso and at least Sessegnon. Rumors are saying coutinho and dybala, both of who barca and juve are pushing out. Then you have fernandes who is rushing out of Sporting.

They have also brought in Ndombele and lost only Trippier.

Everton left it too late to make their transfer. The owner wanted to spend. They should have sealed all their deals 4 weeks ago

Wolves challenge for top 4, not at all. Arguably too good for second season syndrome, but top 4? Comical. Given the proceeds that will come from a good stint in the Europa, ‘tis highly likely the might of Molineux will suffer the consequences of a congested campaign. Leicester springs to mind.

Oloye, I think you have it wrong with Sessegnon. Poch is not the kind to buy a player based on hype but rather on potential. Take Jack Grilish for instance, he was heavily linked with a move to Spurs but despite all the talk Poch refused to get him simply because he didn't feel he has those qualities to make his team better. With Ryan, I believe he sees a diamond in the rough just like he did with Danny Rose. I believe Poch is going to turn the lad into one of the finest English players by the time he is done with him hence why he was given a 6 year contract rather than 5.
2 of the finest indigenous coaches Nigeria ever had lost in a space of 4 days. Dear Lord, is this a sign that you are taking away from us what we failed to appreciate? I pray for forgiveness of our sins. I pray for the humility to recognize our wrongs and the humbleness and wisdom to right our ways.

Not entirely true. Spurs wanted him last season but were priced out by Villa. They refused to reduce the price. This year, Aston Villa's promotion made it impossible.

I am sure I did not say the boy did not have have potential, I said he is decent but overhyped. There are many reasons why EPL clubs buy English talents, many reasons the chief one being the quota to fill for home grown talent or whatever name they call the quota system.

Now I mentioned that he has not convinced me he is a good defender, surely he is not better than what Spurs currently have. He might become better after all he is only 19,but right now he is nowhere near Danny Rose nor the other guy.

He is pacey and could be used upfront, but he would still have to work very hard.

We all agree Danny Rose is far better than him and it is the one reason why Spurs fans didn't want Danny to leave. We need Danny to be a mentor to him as he has all the attributes to be as good, if not better than him. But then all of this just conjure. He has a long way to go to prove himself. As to the hype, I don't see anything wrong with recognizing a talented young footballer that has the potential to become world class someday if he can fulfill those talents.

Ryan was bought with the mindset of making him a LWB, similar role to Danny and Bale, when he was around. We already have Son and Lamela to play upfront as the wing.

Yup. Matter of fact it was anticipated Danny was leaving hence the reason for acquiring Ryan. I believe Ryan is going to be 3rd choice as Ben Davies is often used as backup to Danny.

Bro, this is false.


As for Ryan being a 3rd choice left back, I'll be stunned. I expect to see him play on the wings. But we shall see, anyway.
