Klopp: Liverpool ready for title fight despite losing lead

Klopp: Liverpool ready for title fight despite losing lead

The Premier League run-in will kick-off in the earnest this weekend and with nine games left to play for each team, each team has a clear target they want to achieve by the end of the season.

There were other chances for Liverpool, the best of which fell to Fabinho 21 minutes from time, but he took too long to control and allowed Lucas Digne to make a tackle. "Relegation, that's pressure", Robertson said to The Anfield Wrap.

Manchester City hope Saturday's meeting with Watford can offer them the same sort of impetus their opponents provided for Premier League title rivals Liverpool.

"Beyond that, we've a fair run of games, but even those games (against Liverpool) are great games to have - no one is expecting anything of anyone there this season, certainly not us going there, so it's tough for me to put it into a measured pot".

"So if you put the two in 10, absolutely terrific, the points return in those games, 18 points - almost two a game in the Premier League is really good".

Burnley are slightly better off but at the other end of the table. Sunday-Tuesday would be a real problem.

"Historically against Burnley it is always hard because they have a high motivation level and they are always fighting in a game".

Liverpool host Burnley on Sunday before heading to Germany for their Champions League last-16 second leg against Bayern Munich. Only Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge scored more than his 13 Premier League goals.

Manchester City could open up a four-point gap with a win against Watford on Saturday, with Liverpool not in action against Burnley until Sunday.

But it is not all doom and gloom for the Clarets. He once said "hello" when we were at a game I was scouting at, at Preston, when I first came up here.

"Milly [James Milner] everything heals quicker but still three days to go, he trained yesterday with the rehab coach and if you asked him he will say he is ready".

The stats are a bit gloomy for the Reds as well.

Virgil van Dijk claims Liverpool "deserve trophies", with Jurgen Klopp's side having turned themselves into serious contenders for Premier League and Champions League crowns.

Roberto Firmino started the Everton game on the bench and came on in the 2 half but was not able to influence the game as much as Klopp would have liked. "He's doing everything he can", Gerrard, who now manages Scottish side Rangers, added.

In addition, Burnley will test Liverpool physically and in the air through Ashley Barnes, Chris Wood and ex-Red Peter Crouch off the bench. Huddersfield are showing some fight under new manager Jan Siewert, pictured, but Bournemouth's forward line of Callum Wilson and Joshua King will score the goals to secure victory for Eddie Howe's men.
