Klopp calls for Reds to focus on present
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, speaking ahead of Wednesday's game against Watford, has urged his players and fans to enjoy the moment.
Klopp's side are a point clear at the top of the Premier League table following Sunday's goalless draw at Manchester United and will be looking for a vital three points in the title race when they host the Hornets in midweek.
The Reds have stuttered in recent games, drawing three of their last four in the league, while they were also held to a 0-0 draw by Bayern Munich at home in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie last week.
Despite plenty of people questioning if Liverpool have what it takes to hold off second-placed Manchester City in the race to be crowned champions, Klopp is staying positive and says no-one should be looking back at recent performances and results or worrying about games to still to come.
"We don't have to look that far. It's so positive, and if you now only judge the moment and see the opportunity, then everything is fine," he said in his press conference.
"But if you always look one week back, two weeks back, three weeks back, where we drop points or we concede goals, and you talk like 'we have to win' instead of 'we can win', then that makes life a little bit more uncomfortable.
"For a lot of supporters it would be the first time in their life that they are champions, and for a lot of my players as well. It's a pure opportunity, a pure opportunity, and you have to use it on the front foot."
