Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists his side are in the ‘right mood’ ahead of their huge clash with Manchester City.
Klopp’s unbeaten Premier League leaders travel to the defending champions on Thursday night, knowing a win will give them a nine-point advantage at the top of the division as they seek a first league title in 29 years.
‘I see their attitude and the right mood and all that stuff in the games and the training sessions. We are all individuals, but there is nothing that we have to talk about in the case of something is going in the wrong direction.’ Klopp told his pre-match press conference.
‘Results and performances give confidence. We’ve had results and really good performances, and the boys have the quality. As I have always said, as long as we mix up our potential with attitude, it will be quality. That’s what the boys have shown so far and what we have to do again.
‘I think we got rid – finally – of the backpack when we reached the Champions League final. We didn’t win it, yes, but not 20 teams in the past reached the Champions League final, so that was the moment when the boys did something really special. Yes, we didn’t win it but the ride there was unbelievable and so, since then, it feels different, that’s true.’
