Klopp urges Anfield crowd for support

Jurgen Klopp has urged the Liverpool faithful to show all their support for the club when the Reds return to Anfield to play Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Liverpool’s last game at home was against Bournemouth in early April and while they have beaten Stoke City and West Brom in their two away fixtures since then, Klopp is fully aware the battle for a top four spot will require every resource at Liverpool’s disposal.

“What I can say is that we really need all our passion in a situation like this,” Klopp told liverpoolfc.com. “I said a few days ago that it’s not about playing the best football, it’s about getting results.

“Most of the time it works if we’ve got a good plan. But a lot of passion is really important. We need all the passion from the stands. It’s Anfield. We’ve had two away games.

“It feels like we last played here eight weeks ago or something. Now we are back.

“It’s Crystal Palace, it’s Sunday afternoon, so let’s go on for this game and do our best. That starts with the first whistle, but if we can start with the atmosphere around it, I’d be really happy.

“I would be really appreciated if the crowd could be in their absolute best mood. It would be nice.”

Liverpool haven’t lost a game since February and are sitting third five points behind Tottenham Hotspur. They are now entering the crucial closing stages of the season with the intensity of the last few months claiming the scalps of Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana and top performer Sadio Mane. Klopp, however, insists the injuries were more down to luck rather than intensity.

“Look at the injuries we’ve had – not a lot of muscle injuries.” he said. “It’s not a moment in the season where we are having the hardest training or whatever, so it’s all about individual situations.

“It’s not about day to day, it’s just…the best world is unlucky.”
