Liverpool FC manager looking for improvement after topping table
Jurgen Klopp wants his team to stay cool after thrashing Watford 6-1 to go top of the Premier League table
November 7th, 2016
Liverpool are in a good place after smashing six goals home against the Hornets, a result which has sent the Reds top of the Premier League table.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have scored a sum total of thirty goals, with eight wins recorded in eleven matches and the German is confident that his team can continue to improve as the season wears on.
Klopp enjoyed his team’s performance against Watford although he still feels as though Liverpool’s players can produce a higher quality of play for future matches.
“If somebody thinks being one point ahead after 11 match days is a big sign for the rest of the season then I can’t help this person,” said Klopp. “We stay cool. It’s the best position I can imagine but nothing else has happened. We knew that Arsenal drew against Tottenham but we didn’t speak one word before the game about the possibility of being top of the table. The only thing you can do is work and stay concentrated. A lot of different things could happen in the next few weeks and months, how positive they are is up to us.
“There’s no pressure after 11 match days, absolutely no pressure at all. We saw Chelsea yesterday – quite impressive. Manchester City playing Barcelona – quite impressive. Man United – never write them off. Tottenham – a really good side. There are a lot of really good teams around. You can play a really good season but finish fifth or sixth and nobody would be really happy.
“Stay cool, take the things like they are, play your best, win games, that’s the only thing we can do. When I came here I asked for time and patience and belief and after 11 match days everyone’s asking for guarantees that are not there. The only thing we have for sure is a pretty good football team. We are still early in our development and a lot of things can be improved.”
