Liverpool have kicked-off their new Premier League season with a good start as they are currently leading the league table with maximum points having won four out of four possible games so far.
However, Jurgen Klopp thinks that there should be no mistakes from the team and claims that they should be 100 per cent focused.
“Oh yes, we knew how important that would be,” Klopp said.
“We were criticised about our pre-season and we were not good, that is the truth, but it was my fault that we had heavy legs. My priority was to be ready for the new season.
“It wasn’t about playing the best football, but winning the (first four) games. I’m so pleased we have done that because it was really difficult to be ready given that four or five players came back from their summer break only in the last 10 days.
“But so far it has worked.”
“It always felt like we were one step behind until we finally won something,” continued Klopp.
“Now we have and it’s a big relief.
“That’s special but it’s done now. We have to be 100 per cent focused – that’s what took us to the position we were in last year.
“And as long as we can keep that mindset alive, it will be good. Yes, we have quality, but only with this mindset can we really perform on the pitch.
“The next few months are the most intense – right through until January. It’s a slog.”
