Klopp believes his side are more Rocky Balbao than Ivan Drago in his response to how his side would go about bridging last season's 25-point deficit to Manchester City.
"We are still Rocky Balboa, not Ivan Drago," said Klopp. "We are the ones who have to do more, fight more, and that must be our attitude.
"In the moment someone thinks we reached already a point then that is when you start disappointing yourself and the people around you.
"Why should we do that? We didn't reach anything so far. We went to finals. Should we go to a final again we should try to win it this time.
"We have to be like Rocky."
