Klopp Focused On Southampton EFL Clash, Not Chelsea Title Chase

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has tasked his side to fight to win each game in a bid to strengthen their chances of silverware this season.

The Reds are currently fourth in the English Premier League table, 10 points adrift of leaders Chelsea who they host next Tuesday at Anfield.

Klopp will hope to lead his side out in Tuesday's's English Football League Cup home clash against Southampton as they hope to overturn a 1-0 deficit.

“We fight in each game. That’s the most important thing. Then we see," he said in his pre-match press conference Monday afternoon.

“Of course, in cup competitions, the target is to win. But it’s not that easy to plan or whatever. As I said a few weeks ago, if Chelsea win all their games in the league, there’s no chance for other teams.

“But it’s important to finish the season as good as possible. We have the quality to fight for the Champions League, we should do this. And then, if you are close enough in the decisive moment of the season, then you can fight for a little bit more.

“We have two games, then Chelsea. And then we think about them.”

He also admitted that Liverpool missed the trio of Saido Mane, Philip Coutinho and Joel Matip.

“We missed Sadio…we missed Phil for a time…we missed Joel Matip," Klopp added.

“As much as I like Sadio, it’s not that we had problems because we missed Sadio.

“We made other mistakes, not because we’re not scoring enough goals. We scored enough goals to win the games."
