Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has come out to say that Alisson’s match-winning header against West Brom was fate. He, however, revealed that his boys must now play every EPL game like it’s a final to keep their UCL dream alive.
According to him, Liverpool still has a lot of work to do this season and he will ensure his boys do not celebrate their days before the night.
He added that winning the Burnley match is key because that will ensure Liverpool has something to fight for on Sunday.
His words, “I will not guard against it, no chance.”
“There is no reason for guarding against anything. It was a very positive moment and, when Alisson scored, it looked like it was meant to be.”
“That is what we as human beings are always like. Don’t we all believe in fate until we realise this time it is not meant to be?”
“That means there is still a job to do. One of the lessons I learned very early in my life is don’t celebrate the day before the night. That is what we say in Germany. Does it make sense?”
“If we finish the season now we are fifth, and if we keep the points tally we currently have we will not even finish fifth, so we’ll see if it is fate or not at the end of the season.”
“Since I’ve been here pretty much every season has gone to the wire, for different reasons. I can’t remember a season when we haven’t had finals.”
“It was either a big cup competition or we have had to fight in the league to the very last second. So here we are again. Now we have to make sure we have something to fight for on Sunday.”
“It is a semi-final at Burnley and, if we win it, we have a final. If we don’t win, then probably not. Six weeks ago no one would have imagined we could get that close. But close is not there.”
