Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has warned his side to expect tougher tests that West Ham’s game before the end of the season.
The League leaders once again registered the second consecutive draw after settling for a 1-1 draw with the Hammers. The Reds could have opened a five-point lead between them and Manchester City but the results mean Liverpool is just 3 points above Pep Guardiola’s men. Despite being without big stars like Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum, Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold, Klopp insists his side can still handle the pressure of the title race.
“If you want to be at the top of the table at the end of the season, you have to deal with much tougher situations than we had (at West Ham). That’s the truth, that’s always clear. But of course, you need players fit and available, that helps a bit,” he said.
“We have to fight, it’s not about pressure, it’s about enjoying the situation. We have 62 points, lost one game in a full season so far, which is very positive. I have seen your faces already, you feel a bit sorry with us, you don’t have to, we are fine, everything is good. Tonight was just a tough game.”
