Liverpool have done the impossible, having clawed back to a position where they control their top 4 destiny. The match on Sunday is obviously a huge match and the Reds will receive a boost from having 10,000 fans inside Anfield. Liverpool’s boss Jurgen Klopp talked with the official team website about having fans back in.
“It’s the best news in a long, long time, to be honest, that we are able to do that.” Klopp said. “If you would have told me years ago, ‘Anfield, 10,000’, I would have [thought], ‘What? That must be a really bad period.’
“But Anfield, 10,000 now sounds amazing and it is. I can’t wait to get out and just see the stands – I think it’s all four stands, right?
“But 2,000 we had was already really impressive. So now 10,000, I can’t wait.”
Every season (besides last year) Klopp has been managing Liverpool it’s come down to the last game of the season. In 2017, Wijnaldum scored the winner against Middlesbrough to clinch Champions League football.
“Middlesbrough, Gini Wijnaldum, great goal, stuff like this. It was a big game,” he continued.
“We had a lot of important games in the last part of the season, so that’s how it is. Being experienced in it doesn’t mean you are always ready for it – but we will be ready.
“We fought so hard to come in this position and we will absolutely give our everything. Will we play our best football? I don’t know. Will we give our absolute everything? Definitely.”
