Liverpool ‘on fire to strike back’ against Tottenham after recent slump, says Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp refused to be drawn on Liverpool’s title chances

“In the best times, we said it and it was the truth, we go game by game. Do you think it is impossible to go there and get something? No.”

The last time Liverpool and Tottenham met six weeks ago they were first and second in the league, but both have since dropped out of the top four.

Klopp’s side have dropped points against West Brom, Southampton, Newcastle, Manchester United and Burnley in recent weeks, failing to score a league goal in their last four games.

But Klopp has faith they can get back to the levels that saw them sweep to the title with 99 points last term.

“We want to be the team nobody wants to play against,” he said. “We have the chance to be that team tomorrow night and on Sunday and again on Wednesday and again and again. It’s what we want.

“People told us we were the best team in the world. We weren’t but that’s not a problem. We could beat the best team in the world and we still can but we want to prove that on the pitch and we will.

“We are on fire to strike back, and the more negative things that are thought about us and said about us, the more we want it.”
