Liverpool boss Klopp: We can rattle big spenders

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists they can match the Premier League's big spenders.

Saturday's visit of champions Leicester, who won the title on a budget considerably smaller than some of the so-called bigger clubs, will also mark the first use of the new Main Stand at Anfield which has increased capacity to 54,000.

"We are the only people that can change our circumstances, nobody else will do it for you," he said.

"You can say 'But they have this, they have that' - it is useless. We will work with what we have.

"We have to do more from our side. We want to go to the best teams in the world and give them hell in the moment we face them - in Manchester, in London, wherever I don't care. This is football.

"If there is one part of life where you can challenge the best in the world, then its football.

"It depends on our attitude. If always the people with the best circumstances would win, this world would be an ugly place.

"We all have the chance to fight for everything. It's not about having a guarantee, it's about having the opportunity.

"And now, looking at this (the new stand), it's even better. On a day like this, we shouldn't think someone has more than us, but only how much we have to use."
