When it comes to fixing the problems that have plagued Liverpool this disappointing season, manager Jurgen Klopp does not believe his squad is “out of the woods” just yet. The 2-1 comeback win over West Ham on Wednesday made it three consecutive victories, five games without a loss and kept them in the hunt for a top-four finish.
Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool manager cautious following three consecutive wins
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp feels his team is not yet “out of the woods” in addressing the flaws that have marred their disappointing season. Wednesday’s 2-1 comeback victory over West Ham made it three wins in a row, extending their unbeaten run to five games and keeping them in with a chance of finishing in the top four.
Liverpool will face Tottenham at Anfield on Sunday with the chance to win their fourth league game in a row for only the second time this season. Liverpool may be finishing the season strongly and may yet qualify for Europe.
However, they are still a point behind Spurs in fifth, who currently hold the Europa League slot, and seven behind Manchester United in fourth, with time to improve their position quickly running out.
“It is, for me, too early to speak about consistency,” he said. “Winning three games is not for me consistent. It can only be the start of something.
“I am okay with the moment, but it is not that I already trust ourselves to say we are out of the woods because of a few lessons I didn’t want to learn, but learned.”
“If we don’t do something special, this season will be remembered for the 7-0 against Man United,” Klopp continued. “I hope people will speak about it when they look back in a few years. We did what we did.
