Jürgen Klopp feels Liverpool profited from the power of positivity as they turned in an excellent display in Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Anfield – and he wants more of the same throughout the rest of the campaign.
The Reds claimed a point against the league leaders as Georginio Wijnaldum’s second-half header cancelled out David Luiz’s opener, but their performance throughout the evening could have merited more.
Roared on by a raucous home crowd, Klopp’s side put recent frustrations firmly behind them with a high-tempo showing – and the manager believes a similarly optimistic approach over the course of the remaining 15 games of the season will be crucial.
He told reporters at Melwood: “Everyone is looking for guarantees and I cannot guarantee [anything], but I thought, and it makes sense to say, don’t forget there are still a few games to go which we can maybe win.
“It makes life in general easier, and in football especially, [if you are positive] because then you have a good feeling and a good atmosphere. Then you think ‘Yes, we can go for it.’
