Dimitar Berbatov backs Man United and Tottenham to finish above City

Dimitar Berbatov backs Man United and Tottenham to finish above City

"I said before the game, it's not that he has problems - he has no problems", said Klopp. The Brazilian did not dominate headlines last season, but it was largely thanks to his defensive security that Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva were able to flourish in the centre. It's been eight very successful years here and we've played attractive football.

"We made 75 minutes incredible but the last 15 minutes we were so exhausted and there were some changes and of course their quality of the attacking players they deserved to score more goals at the end".

Last season, the Merseyside club won just eight of their first 15 Premier League games and recorded the same total number of wins in their last 15.

And after the game manager, Jurgen Klopp admitted the surprise inclusions of the African stars, who featured at the 2018 FIFA World Cup made a big impression.

However, as the world eagerly awaits the big kick-off on August 10, Liverpool have embarked on a huge summer spending spree, spending the best part of £200 million to bring Naby Keita, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson Becker to the club.

"But it could be like what happened with Phil Foden and Brahim Diaz - he could stay with us, because from what we have seen in these days, the impression is good, so good", he added. Fernandinho rarely plays the final pass - seven City players created more chances than him last season - but attacks usually start at his feet. The way Napoli played last season was really attractive.

It all underlines the challenge for City when it comes to reinforcing the position.

This has proven even more so this year, helped by the absence of many of their higher profile players.

This upcoming Premier League season has all the makings of being an absolute classic, and City will have to be at their very best, if they are to retain their title.

"When my Manchester City contract expires I'll be 34 years old and at that age I'll probably want to do something different", he told Sky Sports. Lightening the load on the man who holds it all together should be a priority.
