Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has started the mind games ahead of a potential Champions league decider against Arsenal on March 4.
The charismatic German had thrown down the gauntlet after seeing his team win 2-0 against Tottenham last time out in the league, and believes his team will do all within their power to get victory against Arsene Wenger’s stuttering side.
The Gunners are not in the best of form at the moment, and the manner in which Liverpool decimated Tottenham is still fresh on the minds of Kopites, meaning there is greater belief heading into this match than ever before.
After Sadio Mane left for the Nations Cup in January, the Reds won just once in 10 matches in all competitions, exiting the cup competitions and sliding down the Premier League table, where they are currently placed 5th, three points behind Manchester City, who currently are placed second.
Klopp, who was quoted as saying by the Daily Express:
“Arsenal is coming and we all know how good they are, so it’s difficult yes, but it’s possible (to win) and that’s what I always say – as long as it’s possible let’s try to do it, let’s really try to do it. ” “For this we need everybody in the best mood.” he added.
The game is very important as the race for the Champions League places hots up, and a win for either side could be a massive statement of intent for the remainder of the season.
Liverpool will be confident heading into this one, as they have the best record when playing against their top 6 rivals, and were also impressive when they won 4-3 at The Emirates on the opening day of the season.
