Liverpool still heading in the right direction - Klopp

Liverpool still heading in the right direction - Klopp

The 28-year-old is back in contention for the Sunday's Premier League clash with Fulham. Even if it's not Premier League, it's kind of this big gap.

'We chose an ugly way to lose the game, ' he said.

"But it doesn't really feel like that because there are two reasons in comparison with past year: free-flowing football in a few games and Man City and maybe Chelsea and a few others play a very good season as well".

Fulham failed to test Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lössl during their 1-0 defeat at the hands of the Terriers, but will be looking to Aleksandar Mitrovic and André Schürrle for inspiration in front of goal.

We need to be more motivated and be ready for a fight, be ready for battle. "They are professional. I don't defend a corner, I don't press any players".

While Klopp insisted he was not concerned about the form of a side that have collected an impressive 27 points from the first 11 games of the Premier League season, he admits his side have not produced "spectacular football in each game" in recent weeks.

"When Jordan is not available we always miss him".

He said: "I would love to say that Hendo would have changed the whole (Red Star) game but I'm not really sure about it".

Liverpool's goal difference is now 12 worse than City's, but Klopp said he was not focusing on that ahead of the game against a Fulham team with the Premier League's worst defensive record.

"That's a really tough job but we have no problem with that, we go for everything".

"This is a really unusual situation for Fulham, I can really imagine how they feel". But they have also conceded a whopping 29 goals in 11 games and would be topping the league if the table was based on goals conceded.

In all competitions, Fulham have managed just one win in their 33 away visits to Liverpool (D9 L23), scoring just four times in their last 17 games at Anfield.

Slavisa Jokanovic's side have the unwanted record of conceding the most goals in the Premier League, with 29, but Gale feels it is the best time to face Liverpool. Liverpool's league form has been extraordinary and the Reds are one of the most feared teams in Europe. I think you can feel it a little bit.

Fulham's last win against Liverpool came in 2012 when a Martin Skrtel own-goal handed the Cottagers the three points at Anfield.

For Liverpool in the Premier League, Mohamed Salah is averaging a goal or assist every 66 minutes against newly promoted teams (4 goals, 5 assists in 592 minutes).
