Jurgen Klopp says that Liverpool with its annihilation of West Ham United has shown to everyone that they can soak the pressure as well as any other team playing in the top flight.
Because of the waste of a penalty by Liverpool in the previous match, the critics were starting to doubt if the Reds had got the temperament to play under intense pressure situations.
But, Klopp reckons whatever doubts that were there would have gone out of the window now after an absolutely clinical performance by the Merseyside club at the Olympic Stadium.
As per Klopp, he himself never had any doubts over the temperament of his players because his players have earned more than 70 points this season and they couldn’t have earned so many points without playing some fantastic Football.
Klopp opines that pressure is something one can’t get away from. It will always be there in life, but, what one must do is to overlook the negative aspects of pressure and just exploit the positive aspects of it which his players did in the West Ham game.
Klopp, however, admits that West Ham made it a little bit easier for his team by missing easy opportunities, but, he insists that credit must be given to his players for being dominant throughout the match and piling on goals one after the other.
Klopp reveals that during the interaction that his players had between themselves after the match, they promised to each other that they would not be complacent after this win and would continue with the same intensity in the next game too because winning the next game is equally important at this crunch stage of the season.
Liverpool is in a battle with Manchester City and Arsenal for the no. 3 and no. 4 spots in the Premiership standings.
