Klopp: Liverpool players refusing to ‘point the finger at each other’

Jurgen Klopp says his Liverpool players are refusing to blame each other over their mixed recent run of results.

The Reds were knocked out of the FA Cup in the fourth round by Manchester United recently so had a welcome week off this week as other Premier League sides played.

Liverpool have only won two of their last nine Premier League fixtures, with that form seeing them drop down into fourth position in the table, with third-placed Leicester City to play on Saturday.

Ahead of the fixture against Brendan Rodgers’ side, Klopp insisted that the atmosphere around the club is still good despite their bad results.

“We are in it together,” Klopp said. “There is nothing to worry about, we are not pointing the finger at each other.

“There is nothing bad to say about the atmosphere but we are not flying. It’s normal if you don’t get results week in, week out, that a few things drop.

“Rhythm is difficult when you have to keep brining players in. I saw a very confident team against Manchester City, which is one of the most difficult games in the world. The only thing you can really do is to fight through a situation like this. Nobody will help you.

“You have to work for all the situations, defend and attack on the highest level. There are a lot of good signs in the last few weeks. That shows me we aren’t too far away.”
