Liverpool boss Klopp: Top 4 failure would be disappointing

Liverpool boss Klopp: Top 4 failure would be disappointing

Against more open sides, particularly those among the top-six willing to take on Klopp's charges at their own game, Liverpool fare significantly better.

"It is not the first people have said something like this but I don't have a Plan B in my mind", Klopp said.

"It is not the first time people have said something like this". I know most of our performance was defensively but I think we showed a different side to our game.

The Clarets have become one of the most feared teams when stepping out on home soil, but they can not reproduce their form travelling away from Turf Moor.

They have scored an unrivalled 58 league goals this season but Stoke are the only team in the top half of the table to concede more than the Reds. "Liverpool simply can not afford any more surprises".

"We will see with Dejan".

While Klopp is fully aware of Liverpool's consistency issues, he says the club is coming together and there should be no questioning its collective attitude on the pitch.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has watched his outfit stumble and stutter on numerous occasions, but the Merseyside giants remain just four points off second spot in the division. They've had a few ups and downs, but we're a team who were considered to have no chance, to be where we are, it's more about the whole season.

If the Merseysiders want a top four finish they need to approach this game with the correct mentality and that alone could very well go a long way to securing the three points.

I understand that some people will lose their patience, but we can't. He is generally seen as the player to drive the team forward, and has contributed with 12 goals and eight assists in 26 games. Yes, we know how to play.

Burnley themselves are coming off a poor result against Swansea City, although he Clarets are now nine points above the drop zone which should be enough of an advantage to see them avoid getting caught in a relegation battle.

Not only does he provide a physical focal point, Dzeko's hard work in dropping deep to pick up possesion can also help the likes of Coutinho, Firmino and the more direct Mane create space should the Reds need to push up the field quickly.

As Matt wrote about earlier today, Roberto Firmino is a serious doubt for tomorrow's clash with Burnley.

And following on from our victories over Spurs and Arsenal at Anfield then Liverpool should have nothing to fear from a side without an away win in any competition this season.
