Jurgen Klopp: What Liverpool players must show for the rest of the season
The Liverpool manager explains what he wants to see for the rest of the season
Jurgen Klopp has challenged his Liverpool squad to show greater consistency for the remainder of the 2016-17 campaign.
The Reds have endured a tough start to 2017 after making premature exits in the FA Cup and the League Cup in January to heap pressure on Klopp.
Liverpool managed to record their first Premier League game of the calendar year last weekend after a 2-0 victory over top-four rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield.
Sadio Mane scored twice in the first half against Spurs to take his tally to 11 goals in his first Premier League campaign following a big-money move from Southampton in the summer.
Liverpool will make the trip to defending champions Leicester City in their next top-flight fixture at King Power Stadium on Monday 27 February.
Speaking to Liverpool’s website about his side’s prospects for the remainder of the campaign, Klopp demanded that his Liverpool players show greater consistency for the rest of the season.
“I spoke a few days ago, after the Hull game, that we lost kind of the flow, but actually we have it. We’ve played fantastic football in this season already and obviously people are in a good mood here,” Klopp said.
“It was all about getting the confidence in training, and doing the things we want to be good in and were good in and I thought the Tottenham game showed already that we are still capable of doing things like this, but now we have to bring consistency – we know this.
“[There are] a lot of things you could already say about this season, a lot of good things and a few not so good things, but at the end we have the chance in 13 games to really reach something special, and that’s what we are working on.”
Liverpool are in fifth place in the Premier League table.
