‘These are all finals for us’, says Klopp about Liverpool remaining games

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes their remaining matches in the Premier League and Europa League are ‘all finals’.

Liverpool is currently in second place in the Premier League table behind leaders Arsenal on goal difference, with 10 games to go. The Reds also face Atalanta in the Europa League quarter-finals.

Ahead of Sunday’s match against Brighton, Klopp said Liverpool must give “absolutely everything every game” if they want to win these two trophies.

Klopp said: “Give absolutely everything and ignore the mess you try to create, with after each game ‘you won it, you lost it, now you are champions, now you are out, now you have no chance any more, now you have to do it’. Just ignore that, just dig in and go.

We have to give absolutely everything in each and every game – home, away, in England, in Italy, wherever we go.

It’s for us 12 games for sure, maybe 14, maybe 15. That’s not the biggest number but it’s only a short period of time.

It’s all tricky and we need luck, with injuries we didn’t have that so far. Hopefully we have it now with boys coming back. We need them.

And then it’s in each game to find a way to win. We found a way how it’s good for us to play, and that’s what we have to do.

Before the (international) break we had two games – (Manchester) United (a 4-3 extra-time defeat in the FA Cup quarter-finals) and City (a 1-1 draw in the league). In parts of these games, it was the best games we played this season. Now we are back… and now let’s go.”

Klopp added: “These are all finals for us – it is like that. It does not mean you cannot lose one or whatever. We have to play them like normal football games.

“I think everybody is excited about it, and rightly so. Anfield will be rocking on Sunday. We have not only home games unfortunately but we have still a few, and there we must make the difference.

(If) you want to win anything, you need to play top, top, top football, you need to be lucky – what I hope we are from now on with injuries – and then let’s see what we can do.”
