Jürgen Klopp has experienced extreme highs and lows since taking over as Liverpool's manager. He oversaw convincing away wins over Chelsea, Manchester City and Southampton, but suffered a demoralizing defeat last weekend against Newcastle. He pinpointed his team's current task -- a home match against West Brom -- as a chance to prove its real ability.

"I hope we haven't shown our real face until now because I hope there's much more to come," Klopp said. "We don't have to talk about our development always. We just have to show it. We have to do better and show our quality. And we have to finish discussions about our quality from the outside."

Earlier in the season, Klopp expressed disappointment when fans at Anfield left early during Liverpool's loss to Crystal Palace. But ever the optimist, he expressed hope that the atmosphere at Anfield will be special against West Brom.

"It is close to Christmas and people are maybe concentrating on other things but when we come together on Sunday we should all be prepared for a very special moment. Maybe we can create the best atmosphere in the last 10 years," he said. "Like all things in life, you can wait for the moment or you can create the moment and hopefully we can create the moment against West Brom. I'm always close to a good atmosphere in myself. If other people can join us in this, that would be cool."
