Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists his side have created a ‘wonderful base’ as they look to win the double. The Reds currently sit top of the Premier League by two points but rivals Manchester City have a game in hand on them.
Liverpool will need to hope City slip up in the title race but they can also still win the Champions League after overcoming Bayern Munich earlier this month.
The Merseyside club have lost just once in the Premier League this season and next face Tottenham at Anfield on Sunday, while they have Porto to come in Europe.
Klopp is under immense pressure to deliver a trophy this season but the German insists his side have put themselves in a great position. “It is [exciting], absolutely,” Klopp told Liverpool’s website.

“That’s what we were always talking about – a season is like that, you constantly prepare a basis for the final weeks. “We are now in the final weeks and there will be no interruption anymore, there will only be game after game after game and they all are very, very important. “On the one side, opponents fight for the Champions League spots, and on the other, they will fight [to stay in] the league.” After hosting Spurs, the Reds’ remaining away fixtures are at Southampton, Cardiff and Newcastle, with home games to come against Chelsea, Huddersfield and Wolves.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
