We Have Nothing To Lose – Klopp

LIVERPOOL: Jurgen Klopp has warned that his Liverpool manager will try to hunt for a European ticket in the remaining matches of the English Premier League this season.

Unlike last season which saw them on the brink of four championships at this stage, this time The Reds appear without any target other than chasing European qualification – 12 points behind for the Champions League and competing fiercely for a place in the Europa League.

“We have nothing to lose, we’re in a position we don’t want to be in, so we have to accept it.

“We have to try new things. What we try doesn’t work or is less consistent,” said Klopp.

Liverpool are on a five-match winless run since thrashing Manchester United 7-0 at the start of March – a result that does not reflect their season, as does the 9-0 win over Bournemouth in August.

Bournemouth got revenge on Klopp’s squad with a 1-0 win last month, Liverpool’s first game since beating United at Anfield, and followed defeats to Real Madrid and Manchester City before drawing with Chelsea and Arsenal.

“After 7-0 I’m not sure if you know how to deal with the situation after that. You think everything is good, you start scoring goals, then you realize it’s not as expected.

“Winning 2-0 five times in a row is better than that. It was a very strange season, we admit it was not our best season, but with the two biggest wins in the club’s history.

“It’s odd. It proves we can do it but it’s not done every week. That’s our main problem this season,” he said.
