Jurgen Klopp feels Alisson will settle into the Premier League quickly

Liverpool team news Fabinho has been ill in the lead up to the Premier League season opener

Brazil legend, Edson Arantes do Nascimento, known as Pele, has predicted the English Premier League club that will win the title this season.

Shaqiri said: "For me, nothing is impossible".

And with a series of key summer acquisitions, the Reds are seen as the most likely side to dethrone Manchester City.

We beat Manchester City in the league and the Champions League last season so I think we can beat anyone in the world.

"You ask me about the gap with City". It was only a check-up and the scan was clear, but he felt ill when he came back so we sent him home again.

Shaqiri's spells with first club FC Basel and Bayern yielded honours including five domestic titles and the 2012-13 Champions League - and he is targeting further success with Liverpool. We should try to win it this time.

"It is one of the best clubs in the world. I think they had a very successful season, a good season, last time, but we didn't win a trophy". "We have to consider whether it's a risk or not and if it's a risk, whether we take it or not".

Shaqiri, who played in this summer's World Cup for Switzerland, stresses that Klopp now has strength in depth at his disposal after a summer spending spree to supplement what be already had - a team good enough to reach the Champions League Final just three months ago.

"We have a few, not with big issues but with little things", he said.

The Brazilian midfielder joined Liverpool from Monaco in a £39 million deal and many fans pointed out that Pele had completely overlooked the 24-year-old - and they felt kinda sorry for him.

They've also enjoyed feasting on West Ham's defence in recent games, winning this fixture 4-1 back in February and also sticking four past the Londoners in their last two trips south.

They also have a new manager in Manuel Pellegrini, the former Manchester City boss.

"He has done a very good job since he's been here and you can see that the people have a lot of respect for him and his work". "I don't know exactly how - fancy dress for the players or whatever!"

The Reds have been keeping a really high line in their warm-up matches and teams have been getting in behind on occasion so the Austrian could benefit.
