Jürgen Klopp: We want a performance to make Anfield smile again

Actions and not words are what Liverpool require as they aim to return to form against Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon by producing a ‘performance to make Anfield smile’, Jürgen Klopp has stated.

The Reds take on Mauricio Pochettino’s men on Merseyside looking to record a first Premier League win of 2017.

Klopp uses his programme notes in ‘This is Anfield’ to write: “After last weekend we have been the subject of much debate and much criticism I imagine. This is how it is when you lose matches. We were the subject of much praise from August to the start of January. During that period there were many kind words and feelings of positivity and optimism. The nature of this industry means these feelings can change quickly – in either direction.

“For me, situations like this are simple: the praise belongs with the players and the criticism with me. I am the manager, I make the decisions and I am prepared to be accountable for results when they are not as good. What I think is very clear is that there is nothing I can say at this stage that will change minds or perceptions. It will, as is always the case, come down to actions, performances and results. During this difficult start to the New Year I have spoken a lot about my belief and faith in the players. This has not changed even one per cent, but talking will not change opinions in this moment.

“It is maybe appropriate that today we face one of the top teams in the country. Before and after the recent Chelsea home game, people asked me a lot about our results against the ‘top-six sides’. Someone even referenced a ‘mini-league’ that we are top of? The meaning being that our results against Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United are better than anyone else’s.
