Jurgen Klopp believes that Liverpool can retain the Champions League title and win the Premier League this season, according to Danny Murphy.

The Reds came remarkably close to the double last campaign, lifting the European title but missing out on the Premier League by a single point, despite amassing 97 in a remarkable season.

Liverpool have made a perfect start to their domestic campaign this time around, winning their first five league games and they begin their Champions League effort away to Napoli on Tuesday night.

Murphy believes that Klopp will not be prioritising one competition over the other, but will believe that he can win both this season.

Winning one of the big ones again, thats success, Murphy told talkSPORT. I would argue that the club is progressing so well that its not always about the trophy to gauge success.

Hes got such belief in his squad, and whats incredible is how he gets them all playing with that intensity.

Klopp may be aiming to win the Champions League with Liverpool for a second time, but he insists his side are not favourites when they take on Napoli in Italy on Tuesday evening.

We have to invest whatever we have. We cannot play against Napoli deep in your own half, that doesnt work, said the German.

So we have to do what we are good at but make sure it fits for Napoli and then we have that chance there but we dont go there as a favourite.

Yes, we won the competition last season bRead More – Source
