Jürgen Klopp: This run of games is an opportunity
Jürgen Klopp insists Liverpool view the intense run of upcoming fixtures as a huge ‘opportunity’ they want to grasp, starting with this afternoon’s clash with Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield.
The Premier League leaders close November out with a test against Graham Potter’s side today before entering a packed December that brings nine matches.
The Reds, however, welcome such challenges as Klopp looks to carry momentum in order to compete on multiple fronts.
“Make no mistake, this is a big test for all of us. Players, manager and coaches, but also supporters.
“It is on me and the players to make sure we set the agenda and the tone with how we approach it. We must be full of energy and positive aggression.
“As a team we must be the embodiment of intensity in our approach. And if we do that I am 100 per cent certain our amazing supporters will be there with us – the wind at our back.
“We can make Anfield as special and inspirational as any game since I have been here if we want to do this.
“We have to play our part, but I think if there was a game where energy from the Anfield crowd would be good, I’d identify this one.
“We are really ‘in it’ now, in terms of the intense run of games. We don’t see this as a burden but as an opportunity.
“So let’s grasp it – make it special – and enjoy being back in our home together for a football match to remember.”
