Liverpool

Klopp delighted with players self belief

30th March 2019, 08:34 by Nick Harris

Jurgen Klopp says the players' confidence in themselves is vital as Liverpool begin the final push for the title.

Klopp's side have lost just one league match this season, to rivals Manchester City, and in their previous game before the international break bounced back from a rare error by Virgil Van Dijk and goalkeeper Alisson Becker to win and regain top spot.

In such a tight race - Liverpool lead by two points having played one match more - there are likely to be a few more moments which could swing the advantage one way or the other but Klopp has every faith his squad will cope.

"It's not the first time we scored a late goal, but it was massive and it felt really good," he said.

"Learn from your own experience, that's the best thing you can do in life. And if it works out once, then it's easier to believe it will work out again. It doesn't mean it will, but it is easier to believe.

"Their skills are similarly important, the attitude, character, very important too. But if you believe in something, it makes it more likely to happen, 100 per cent.

"The problem is, I'm pretty sure Manchester City believes as well so one will be disappointed at the end of the season.

"But let's go for it. Nobody knows what will be on May 13, but we try everything to make it a big day for us."
