Liverpool form not a catastrophe – Klopp

Published

EPL champions have recorded two victories in seven games and failed to win any of their last four outings.

  Last weekend’s goalless draw with Manchester United also saw the Reds fail to score in a hat-trick of matches for the first time since March 2005.

  But ahead of Thursday’s visit of Burnley, Klopp is adamant there is no cause for concern within the ranks at Anfield despite his side’s current malaise.

  He said: “It is not a catastrophe. It is not perfect, but that is not important.

  “I saw a lot of good signs in the Man United game, and if we had won that game everyone would have seen them.

  “But because we didn’t no-one was interested. That doesn’t change my view.

  “It’s the situation we are in. Things change overnight. I think I heard somewhere I have to rebuild this team.

  “The world is a crazy place – not only because of the pandemic. No-one has time any more and in football we know that.

  “I am long enough [in management] to know you never really get time. You only get time if you always make steps forward.

  “After last season, it is clear we didn’t make steps forward and we know that and we want to change that. But we change it by playing not by talking.”

  Liverpool currently sit fourth in the table with just six points now separating the current leaders, Leicester City from a sixth-placed West Ham United.

  And Klopp expects the unpredictable nature of the English top flight to continue over the coming weeks as the season enters its second half.

  “We’ve known that since a few weeks [ago] and that makes it a slightly different title race or race in general this year.

  “We have to be ready 100 per cent and that’s what we try to do constantly.

  “I know that in this business only results count. But before you have the result you need to have performances and the last performance was really good.

  “We said it how it was, how we saw it. But we didn’t win and now we have another chance to change that, and that’s exactly what we try.”
