Klopp: Looking to build on second part of the season
FOOTBALL-Nairobi, Kenya 27 December 23:18 GMT
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is urging his side to continue building on the strong basis they have built in the first part of the season as the go-ahead to face Arsenal a fantastic club with a fantastic manager according to the Kop boss.
“Arsenal are in a good moment; they have a fantastic team and a fantastic manager, so that will be really difficult,” Klopp told Liverpool’s official website.
“A completely different game, of course. If we let them counter-attack like we did [against Newcastle] I don’t think we have a chance because they are really strong in that. So we have to improve so many things.
“But on the other hand, we have 51 points and that’s unbelievable. We played the first part of the season unbeaten – that’s all good and we feel it, it feels really good.
“The only little problem we have is the second part of the season starts [on Saturday]. What we wanted to do when we started in the summer was to create a basis in the first part of the season for the second part.
“We’ve created that basis and now we have to work with it. What we did so far, we will do again and again and again. We’ll really be completely focused on the next game.
