Liverpool boss Klopp: This Champions League group toughest I've faced

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says this season's Champions League group is the toughest he's faced.

Liverpool's quest to win a seventh European Cup begins tonight against AC Milan, one of only two clubs who have lifted the trophy more than them. After that, there will be trips to Iberia to meet Porto and Atletico Madrid.

"This is the strongest group we have had since I've been at Liverpool, no doubt about that," said Klopp. "In 2013 at Borussia Dortmund, we had a real 'Champions League' group as well. We had Manchester City, Real Madrid and Ajax — a proper group! People said, 'How will we get through?'

"What does it do for the competition? It kicks out two really good teams, it will deliver one really strong team into the Europa League, that's for sure! I never understand when people talk about changes to the Champions League.

"I like it how it is, and this group obviously shows that there are no games where people think, 'Do I really want to watch that?' This group will be exciting from the first second to the last second. Nothing will be decided early. That keeps us on our toes."
