Jürgen Klopp wants to make maximum use of a return to Anfield on Sunday as Liverpool try to maintain their quest for Champions League qualification.
The Reds host Crystal Palace in the Premier League this weekend, with the manager jokingly bemoaning the feeling of not having had the chance to play at home ‘for eight weeks or something’.
In reality, it is just over a fortnight since Klopp’s side were held to a late draw at their own ground by Bournemouth – and they have produced exactly the desired response in the interim.
A comeback victory at Stoke City preceded a hard-fought 1-0 success over West Bromwich Albion on the road, leaving Liverpool with their top-four fate in their own hands with five games remaining.
