Video: Klopp hails Liverpool win

"Last year, we were really good. I'm not sure we were the best team in Europe, but we were really good in the right moments and that's why we won the Champions League." Liverpool beat Tottenham 2-0 in last season's Champions League final in Madrid to win their sixth European title, but Klopp says his team will not feel burdened by heading into this season's competition as champions.

"We don't feel the burden because I don't know exactly how that should feel to be honest," said the German. "It's long ago. Three or four months. The question keeps coming up about whether teams will play differently against us. I have no clue to be honest. "I never went into a Champions League season, winning the Champions League the year before, so we will experience that [together for the first time]. I hope we are prepared for that."

"I feel as though being at Liverpool everyone wants to beat you anyway," he said. "It's the same for us, we want to beat everyone we play and they want to beat us.

"For us, it is the same as it always has been - it's to give everything in every single game we play in and we know it will be a tough game tomorrow. They're a great side but we've just got to concentrate on what we can do. If we perform at the level that I know we can then we'll have a good opportunity to win the game."
