manager believes his side is being measured against historic high standards as well as those being set by Manchester City, distorting perspectives of their best start to a league campaign.

Yet aside from a 4-1 thumping of Cardiff City, Liverpool's attacking juggernaut has slowed of late with three draws in their last five league matches and a timid 2-0 defeat by Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League on Tuesday. We have to build on our situation, we have to get better, to get more confidence out of the season. The season so far point-wise is really successful but it doesn't feel like that - comparison with free-flowing football last season in a few games, and City and Chelsea playing a good season.

"Always you see we struggle and they win 6-0". It's a big gap.

"It feels a bit like this season can only be a success if we become champions this year".

"We are really ambitious, whatever we can get we want to take with all we have". On Tuesday was a rather massive knock that wasn't expected.

Klopp's side had more than 80% of the possession and hit the woodwork twice in the second half but could not score as Red Star recorded their 10th clean sheet in their last 15 home games in Europe. Their start is significantly better this time.

He said: "It's not problem people compare [with last season] and ask if Mo Salah was in the same shape as last season".

"It's good to have them back and it's probably the first time that all midfield players, apart from Ox, are available", Klopp said. "For us it is not too important what happened previous year but for the people, and because of the squad and the signings, we have to use that and not the other way around".

"You have to remember our competitors are champions of last year and two years ago, and a refreshed Arsenal and Tottenham and Manchester United are still there - but we go for everything".

"The boys look much more mature".

Alexander-Arnold, Gomez and Henderson will all depart for worldwide duty following Sunday's lunch-time game against Fulham, despite all three carrying knocks.

It was nearly a flawless evening for Red Star - who became the first Serbian team to win a Champions League group-stage game - but Filip Stojkovic was visibly frustrated as he was carted off the field with an injury in the second half. "But we have to enjoy our football as well exactly in the moment because it was, so far, pretty successful".
