The Reds are coming off of their Manchester City victory high to travel to Liberty Stadium to take on Swansea City today, and it’s gearing up to be a fantastic match. Swansea are currently desperately trying to avoid relegation and Liverpool are on the cusp of their longest unbeaten run in more than 21 years. So, you know, stakes are high and it’s probably going to end up being another nailbiter. Yay.
Klopp, however, is uninterested in the records he’s about to break and the history he’s making with the team. The boss is instead far more focused on the Reds turning out more consistent performances.
“If nobody told me how often we didn’t lose, I’d have no idea about it,” Klopp said this weekend. “That’s all the past and I’m not really interested. You can look back on a season after the season, not during. It’s not important. We feel in a good moment.”
The wins (close and not-so-close) have made for some excellent games, and Klopp wants the players to know that that’s what he’s expecting of them.
”I see the boys training every day and it looks good, that’s the truth, that’s why we can play like we played so far. But we have to do it again. As a Liverpool player you cannot perform one week and then two weeks not — we need to deliver consistently, every day and each game.”
”It’s only the next game and I can’t imagine any easy games in the Premier League and Swansea is for sure not an easy game.”
