Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp states that his players must not depend on the atmosphere of Anfield to break their recent streak of poor performance ahead of Arsenal clash.
Although Liverpool has had a disappointing season, they have lost only one match at home in the Premier League this season and have conceded only nine goals.
An Arsenal side determined to win their first title since 2004 will be facing Liverpool, but the Gunners have not won in the league at Anfield since September 2012, when their current boss Mikel Arteta played in midfield.
Liverpool are on a poor streak but their last win was a 7-0 against Man United
“I don’t know exactly what you can say about us at the moment, so that shows the situation. It’s still Anfield, we’re at home and we still have to show a reaction and an improvement,” Klopp told reporters.
“Anfield is not the only thing we should rely on, but it is no secret that the combination of our people, the ground and the boys is pretty good.
“That is what we have to throw in, but not rely on it. I have a very good feeling we can do it.”
Liverpool currently sits seven points behind the top four, with four teams ahead of them in the table and 10 games left to play.
“We have to play better football and keep the ball in decisive areas,” Klopp added. “It sounds so simple but the last game against Chelsea was a super example.
“Those two teams played at an incredible level last season but neither side was able to do that. That just shows us what happens if the confidence levels aren’t at the highest levels.
“We have to help the boys with different things, and in a home game, a massive boost can be the crowd.”
