Klopp wants players to bounce back against Watford


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is hoping to see his side bounce back to form against Watford this weekend.

The German saw his team lose 2-1 to rivals Manchester United last weekend following a disappointing performance at Old Trafford.

And he is hoping that they can challenge the frustration with that result to get back on track against the Hornets on Saturday evening at Anfield.

“First of all, [the record is] good news but it doesn’t mean anything, it only means we have to do it again.” he said.

“We expect from ourselves that we win football games, especially if we lost a game like the last one.

“In an ideal world you play three hours later and change your own mood, so we keep that kind of revenge feeling or whatever during the week because we have to and we want to go back immediately to the other side, the winning side.

“We were not happy about the result, we were not happy about the performance, but the performance was not as bad as the result.

“Only in a few minutes – seven or eight very decisive minutes – we deserved the result.

“We can play better than we played even in the good moments of that game and that’s what we have to try.

“A lot of things you can learn from this game, a lot of things you have to learn from this game.

“It’s already a few days ago but without striking back in an overly aggressive way, because we never did that, we use it as motivation for sure.

“In professional sports you need to be a little bit angry to bring your best on the pitch.

“So, we respect the rules but we are angry and after a game like this it’s a little bit more.

“Hopefully we can bring that in the game as well.” he finished.

Liverpool will welcome Javi Gracia’s Watford side to Anfield on Saturday evening with kick off at 17:3
