Klopp claims there has been a change of mood at Liverpool
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp claims their 7-1 win over Rangers has completely changed the mood at Liverpool ahead of their premier league clash against Man City on Sunday.
The Reds have endured a very difficult start to the 2022/2023 season, especially in the premier league.
Liverpool opened their UCL campaign with a 4-1 loss to Napoli before their change in form.
Klopp argued the win had made the mood “completely different” and even joked about getting drunk amid the celebrations.
“It changed the mood, definitely,” Klopp told reporters. “It is completely different. We usually drink a beer after away games, but it is that long ago that I drank beer and I probably will be drunk after one.
“It changes the mood completely and that’s good, but we all know who we are welcoming on Sunday and this will be a different game. It is better to go into a game with the feeling we’ve got tonight than any other.”
“The changes tonight were because we could do it, but Diogo Jota didn’t start because I got a call this morning that he feels a little bit his muscle,” the German said.
“He could play but he should not play for too long, so it was my decision to decide do I start him for 30 minutes or do we bring him [on] for 20? So that was obviously the right thing to do.
“Hendo played a lot, Darwin now played a lot after not playing that much and you have all of these kind of things in your mind when you do the changes.
“Actually, the first 11 was really good but the changes made gave us the next step with us and that was very, very pleasing. It was good, but that’s it and now we recover and prepare for the next game.”
“We will see what we can do, but it’s not now that we are with a big mouth and telling them come and we are waiting. Not at all. It was for us tonight, for different reasons, incredibly important. Yes, 7-1 is a freak result, we know that.”
