Liverpool

Klopp ready for final hurdles

13th April 2019, 12:09 by Tom Hill

Jurgen Klopp has urged everyone at Liverpool to give everything they have as they try to secure the Premier League title this season.

The Reds currently lead the league table by two points, with Manchester City breathing down their necks with a game in hand up their sleeve.

City remain the favourites for the title as they look to retain their crown, but their extra match comes against rivals Manchester United.

Liverpool have won their last six in all competitions and Klopp has urged his troops to dig deep as they try to finish the campaign on a high.

He told the club's official website: "If you take a 400m race, it's like after 100m they are all together, after 200m there are a few together, at 300m two are together and in the last 100m you go with all you have.

"We are in that moment of the season. It's about using all your body, using each fibre of your body. We want to control games in a very positive football way. We have to play like adults.

"I am only interested in this Chelsea game. Not because it's Chelsea but because it's the one this weekend. The opponent is so strong and in a good moment.

"What I really want to ask for is that all of us are in a real fighting mood, all at Anfield and whoever is in front of the television, in a proper aggressive, positive, fighting mood. Go for whatever we can go for."
