Jurgen Klopp is at the precipice of history, i.e. if he can keep everyone’s excitement in check during the final few games.
He has the chance to win a League trophy for the first time in 29 years as well as the Champions League. If we win the 9 games that remain, Liverpool will write history once more.
Klopp knows that the season is not a sprint, but he wants to compare it to one. In his pre-match comments, Klopp calls for all quarters of fans to get behind the team from wherever they are.
“It is the last part of the season and use all your body, each fibre. That is what we do.
“The opponent is so strong and in a good moment. I want us all in a real fighting mood, all at Anfield and whoever is in front of the television, in a proper aggressive, fighting mood.
“Go for whatever we can go for.”
“Chelsea is in a good moment, so from the first second of the game we have to be a completely different opponent to all the others they have faced in recent weeks,”
“When you analyse the West Ham and the Slavia Prague games were completely different line up wise.
“They made a lot of changes and were still on their toes, and will make them probably again.
“So it is not too important who plays, it is more important how WE are.
“How can we bring real problems to them because you don’t see that when you analyse them.”
