Jurgen Klopp's focus is on ensuring his talented Liverpool squad deliver on their potential after extensive spending in the transfer market.

Liverpool's close-season outlay was greater than any of their Premier League rivals, adding Alisson, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri to a team that reached the Champions League final last term.

And setting aside talk of his expectations and the strength of the group, Klopp acknowledged only results will matter when the season starts against West Ham on Sunday.

"My own expectations are always pretty high, to make the best of it, get everything out of it," Klopp told a pre-match news conference. "These are my expectations all the time.

"For us, it's pretty normal that there would always be one point where we spent a bit more money. The last few years I have sat here defending our 'transfer behaviour', that we sold more than we brought in.

"It all made sense. We had to create a squad that is strong enough and wide enough to cope with the Premier League, to be as successful as possible. Step by step we come closer.

"People ask me if it's the best squad I ever had or whatever. I don't think about that, because it's not about what we have now.

"It's about what we make of it, how often we deliver, how often we bring ourselves in a mood to fight against all these Premier League teams that want to have our points. We have to be ready to fight."

With players still recovering after the World Cup, Klopp will not yet be able to call on a full-strength squad - Dejan Lovren will be absent and Fabinho is a doubt due to illness - but he is confident Liverpool are ready for the match at Anfield.

"We will see. They're all in a different shape," he said. "Trent [Alexander-Arnold] has been a bit longer, Hendo's [Jordan Henderson] in and full of power but only three or four days, Dejan will not be available.

"[Fabinho's] scan was clear, he felt ill when he came back, so we sent him home again. We will see.

"That's how it is. We have little things we have to think about, if it's a risk or not, if we take the risk or not. At the end, I believe we will have a fantastic football team on the pitch. I have to make a few decisions."

Klopp excited by local talent .
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is keen to see more local players follow in the footsteps of scouse legends Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher and represent the club, the Daily Mail reports. Local lad Curtis Jones is the latest scouser to impress Klopp during the club’s pre-season games after Trent Alexander-Arnold established himself as the Red’s first choice right-back last season. Jones, who is just 17, only signed his first professional contract with the club back in February. A versatile midfielder, the youngster made appearances in friendlies against Tranmere Rovers, Bury and Blackburn Rovers. The 17-year-old was then included in the squad for their USA tour. Jones started the International Champions Cup matches against Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City and also featured for the final 25 minutes of Liverpool’s 4-1 thrashing of Manchester United. The youngster began training with the Red’s first-team last season, making his first appearance on the substitutes bench for Liverpool against Everton in April. Klopp is hoping that Jones can be the next local boy to rise to prominence with the club and told Goal that he is excited by the prospect of Liverpool producing more local talent. “I love it, I love it! It’s important for this club.” “If you have the chance, then you should do it. How many people live in Liverpool – 500,000? Iceland has 330,000, I think, so Liverpool should have enough people to create our own team.” “But of course, the more the better.
