New Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he wants to win the Premier League in the next four years.

The German held his first press conference as the new man in charge at Anfield and set himself the ambitious target of being the top team in England.

"Twenty-five years ago (Liverpool's last title) is a long time. In this time all people have tried to get better, to improve, to take the next title.

"But history is only the base for us. It is all the people are interested in but you don't take history in your backpack and carry it with you for 25 years.

"We can wait for it but I don't want to say we can wait 20 years.

"If we sit here in four years I think we'll have won one title - I'm pretty sure."

Sunderland have targeted former Newcastle United manager Sam Allardyce as the man to replace Dick Advocaat.

Allardyce, who left West Ham in the summer, is no stranger to Sunderland having represented the club as a player.

The former Bolton boss is thought to be keen on taking the role at the Stadium of Light despite their lowly position in the league.

Black Cat officials are keen to get a deal done before the club's next game against West Brom.

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero looks set for a spell on the sidelines after suffering a hamstring injury in Argentina's 2-0 World Cup qualifying defeat to Ecuador.

The 27-year-old, fresh from plundering five goals in City's 6-1 Barclays Premier League win over Newcastle last Saturday, was carried off on a stretcher after sustaining the problem to his left leg midway through the first half in Buenos Aires.

Aguero is set for a scan on the injury and is almost certain to miss Argentina's next game with Paraguay next week.

Manchester City confirmed the injury on their website, with a statement that read: "Sergio Aguero lasted just 22 minutes of Argentina's opening World Cup qualifier against Ecuador.

"The City striker, who scored five goals in his last game against Newcastle, pulled up holding his left hamstring while chasing a long ball downfield.

"Former Blue Carlos Tevez replaced Kun who was stretchered off after receiving treatment with the game at 0-0."
