Liverpool takes on Hull City in the Premier League on Saturday and Jurgen Klopp was on hand at Melwood to discuss the fixture.
After winning their last two Premier League games, Liverpool will be looking to extend this purple patch extend Hull City. The Tigers came into the season under the cosh, barely able to field a full team, but have managed to take three points from Leicester and Swansea.
There have been many questions asked about Liverpool’s ability to beat the lesser teams in the league. Klopp reacted rather badly to assertions that this has to do with the mentality of his side and made a guarantee that defeats like the 2-0 loss against Burnley are a result of “bus-parking.”
Klopp during his presser, according to the Mirror, “I thought I gave the answer to this two questions before, were you not happy with my answer? I can’t give another answer. I’m sorry, maybe my English is not good enough and that’s a problem.
“We didn’t care about the opponent before Chelsea, Tottenham or Arsenal. It’s what we do, not the name [of the opponent].
“It’s positive to create chances but when we miss, we can’t go, “not the same, sh**… rubbish again. We need to be positive again. Everybody has their role. “We have to learn it. It’s not about Hull, it’s about bus parking teams. You don’t always win 5, 6, like Barcelona, they don’t always do it.
“It’s really important that everybody understands. This one issue that everybody is talking about. We didn’t score goals from just counter-attacks.
“They’re very good defending teams. They defended with all they had, it’s the same with Hull. We have to move and create moments and score.
“If everybody gives us this in 90 minutes, 95 minutes, the chance of winning is much greater.”
Liverpool currently sits 6th in the league table. Arsenal and Chelsea, who are 4th and 5th respectively, play each other this weekend and should the Reds win against Hull they will surpass either the Gunners or the Blues or both in the league standings.
