Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has said that he can feel the excitement of his squad over the restart of the Premier League, saying they are ready to secure their first league title in 30 years.
The coach is talking ahead of Sunday’s Merseyside derby, following an enforced three-and-a-half-month break due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A victory will take the Reds further to the title, and Klopp, in an interview with the club website, believes his team is “ready to go” ahead of a period in which they are scheduled to play nine matches in five weeks.
On the feeling of excitement among the players ahead of Sunday’s restart, he said the intensity everywhere.
He also said that the team has to be ready to face problems because there will be some as they are bid to play their remaining games within a short period. The clubs will have to be playing thrice in a week to prosecute their remaining games. To him, it’s not new.
“In a football game, you have a plan for it, and in the game, you have to force it through, or you have to adapt to another one or whatever. It will be exciting.
Speaking on his last three encounters against Everton, which the Goodison Park side took one point from, the German tactician analyzed the team like Napoli or any other team because of its manager, Carlo Ancelotti, who he said has a specific way he wants his team because of his experience.
” So, it will be a football-playing side; they will play as much football as we let them. We have to find challenges, win challenges, use gaps, find gaps, and all that stuff. We have to play through; we have to be 100 percent disciplined, we have to be full of joy, we have to stay greedy before the game, in the game [and] after the game. That’s all that we need.”
Liverpool on the verge of success
After winning the Champions League last season that had eluded Klopp on two different occasions, Liverpool can now enjoy a domestic success, which is hugely deserved based on their performance in the league during the present campaign.
They can increase their lead to another 25 points ahead of Manchester City that thrashed Arsenal 3-0 domestic with maximum points against their local rival.
Liverpool had already set the standard high, and they will be expected to maintain it in their final nine games.
Klopp also during the interview said he has no injury concerns ahead of the short trip across Merseyside.
