Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes his side have created a “wonderful base” for the remainder of the season as they continue their challenge for the Premier League and Champions League double. Liverpool lead Manchester City by two points at the top of the Premier League table, having played a game more, while the Reds are also through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, where they will face Porto. The Merseyside club have lost just once in the Premier League this season and next face Tottenham at Anfield on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.
Klopp has played down the pressure of the title race and believes his side are well positioned to secure their first league crown since 1990. “It is [exciting], absolutely,” Klopp told Liverpool’s website. “That’s what we were always talking about – a season is like that, you constantly prepare a basis for the final weeks.
