Klopp Looks Ahead To Watford

New, comments

Looking back is probably not worth anyone’s time at this point in the season.

There’s really not much to say about whatever passed for a game on Sunday. But post-match pressers are a thing and Jürgen Klopp has rallied enough to talk about the path forward.

The injury list continues to grow — Daniel Sturridge’s hip injury has flared again — but there is some positive news ahead of the May 1 clash against Watford.

“Maybe Adam [Lallana] will be back for the next game, of course [that] would help us in different situations,” Klopp said after the Crystal Palace game.

Lallana has been out of commission for the past month with a thigh injury he picked up during the last international break. Having him back on the pitch against Watford (definitely a team in the Dangerous-Against-Liverpool Zone) will hopefully be a boost for the Reds.

Klopp was also philosophical about learning from the defeat as the team looks to the last month of the season.

“Defeats always make sense. We don't like it but there's a reason for not only what you did in the game but also how you react after the game,” he said. “There's month to go, one wonderful football month, we will not give up. 100% not.

“We have now five or six days to train before Watford. We will use it, it will not be easy but possible. It's enough.

“That's all I can say about this. We have to try everything and we will. Our job is to squeeze everything out of this season. What we can squeeze. Obviously it's not easy for us, no surprise.”

Who knows, maybe miracles will happen and we’ll see another game like the 6-1 victory against Watford last November.
