Jurgen Klopp has hailed Liverpool’s unbelievable consistency this season, as the club prepare for the Premier League’s final day title race showdown.
Liverpool host Wolves at Anfield on Sunday, knowing a win could deliver a first title in 29 years should leaders Manchester City slip up at Brighton.
Klopp’s side are currently on an eight-game winning streak in the league, whilst they have also qualified for a second successive Champions League final having overturned a 3-0 deficit to beat Barcelona in a memorable semi-final tie.
Following that epic win, Klopp said his team have the ‘mentality of giants’ and the German says his players’ ability to deal with difficult situations is a key reason for their success.
“The readiness to deal with difficulties, to deal with problems, in a game,” Klopp said in his pre-match press conference.
“That’s how it is because we have a specific plan for a game and then it never works out 100 per cent, but to stick to the plan is really important. So the relationship between us has got better and better and better and better because of our own experiences, what we did together, what we wanted to do, how we deal with the moments when it was not that beautiful and all that stuff.
“So the boys did really an unbelievably consistent job and being consistent is the most difficult thing in life and football as well, because there are a lot of good footballers out there but to show your quality week in and week out, that’s the most important thing to be really successful. That was the biggest step, obviously, we did so far.
“So the boys were a lot of times really happy during the week, but there was never a moment where I had to tell them to calm down, now information again. But how can we get 94 points until this point with having a random group of players?
“We don’t have that, we have a really special group and that’s why we are where we are. But there are still two very important games to play and one of them is on Sunday.
“We need exactly the same again and if we can do that, we have a chance to win the game. If we have a chance, we should do it.”
