Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool need title win for season to be a success

Liverpool's manager believes his side is being measured against historic high standards as well as those being set by Manchester City, distorting perspectives of their best start to a league campaign.

Red Star had scored only one goal in four and a half hours of Champions League football before they netted twice in half an hour against Liverpool.

"But it doesn't really feel like that because of two reasons".

"But it doesn't really feel like that because there are two reasons in comparison with a year ago: free-flowing football in a few games and Man City and maybe Chelsea and a few others play a very good season as well". That should not be a surprise for us, so it isn't. It's a big gap. "It's all about a reaction from Tuesday now, but Fulham on Sunday is a tough job to do now". We go for everything.

"It was more a general meeting about our situation and what we expect from ourselves", he said.

"The whole game was kind of unusual".




The Netherlands worldwide started alongside Joel Matip in the centre of Liverpool FC's defence for their fourth Champions League fixture of the season. "If we are confused, scared and play like kids, it is not easy for any team". Off the pitch I didn't need a lot of help because I was living here [in England] already for three years and when I needed some help on the pitch, all the players helped me very good. I don't know which game that was, maybe the Roma game at home or something like that?

"We are right now not showing this quality or effort, we must wake up and when we lose the game we must know how we lost it; we can not sell our skin so cheap".

While Klopp admitted his players were below-par on Tuesday night in Serbia, he said: "A lot of things are better than at the same time previous year". We were in the Champions League final previous year and that's the last impression, with all the spectacular games and whatever. "But in the games before, it was absolutely OK".

On Henderson, Klopp said: 'When Jordan isn't available, we always miss him.

"People seem to be saying this season will only be a success if we become champions, but it is not like that". But a lot of people compare a normal Premier League game which we win, with the very best game of last season. "But we have to not be satisfied with it but see it in the right way, rather positive", Klopp said in his pre-match press conference.
