EPL: Pele predicts club that'll win title this season

After last year's second successive top-four finish and thrilling run to the Championship League final, big things are expected of Liverpool this time around.

Pele believes Liverpool will win the 2018-19 Premier League title this season ahead of Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea.

"It is no problem", insisted the Liverpool manager in an exclusive interview with Soccer Saturday.

"We want to - that's clear for ages - be the champion of England or winning the league".

"We can not ignore that when trying to redefine Klopp as some kind of chequebook manager, or Liverpool's American owners as Roman Abramovich-style benefactors". We went to finals.

"That is what Liverpool made me feel", he added, with Klopp's men beginning their campaign at home to West Ham on Sunday.

"We are still Rocky Balboa, not Ivan Drago", said Klopp.

"And apart from catching balls, that helps massively. Clubs go there and put 10 behind the ball and you need to break them down and Shaqiri has got that in the locker". "And obviously he has that".

Alisson hopes he can prove to be a value-for-money purchase at Liverpool - just like superstar forward Mohamed Salah. We can improve our offensive play, we can improve our defensive play. "He wants to play good football, as good as he is able to do".

'I can't remember a bad game off him in pre-season, which is good. It is obvious that he has to do it again, you can see in each session that he is a fantastic professional.

"However, I'm going to go with Naby Keita".

But as we know opening day games are never simple, often provide shocks, always unpredictable and most definitely full of incident. It looks like a few players are not involved but that's how it is.

And it is that quartet of signings that has led many experts to predict Klopp's exciting team will run champions Manchester City close this time around. "That's why I am backing Jurgen Klopp's side to pip them to the title".

"In the moment someone thinks we reached already a point then that is when you start disappointing yourself and the people around you".

"I think we now have the quality". They didn't lose any player.

"We do not have to play much better in the games against City - if we perform like we did previous year, that would already be good".
