According to coach Jürgen Klopp, FC Liverpool footballers will be worried about qualifying for the Champions League. After a goal-free draw in the 19th round of the Premier League with the leader Manchester United, the German coach pointed out that only after fulfilling this goal can he think of defending the English title.
The reigning champion for injuries is missing several defenders, led by the tracker Virgil van Dijk, and in the absence of forward Diog Jota, they came out empty-handed in the third league match in a row. In the table, they are in the fourth place only five points ahead of the ninth West Ham United.
"In the 2018/2019 season, when we finished in second place, I started thinking about the title only when we secured participation in the Champions League. I know how difficult it is to meet this goal, and this year it will be even more challenging. Fans expect victory in every match and I'm no different, but I've already learned that you have to go through such periods. It's not by far the hardest situation in my career, we just have to keep playing. We've gotten used to missing injured players, but already they are starting to come back, "Klopp told AFP.
