‘Because they haven’t won the league for so long and it’s a club that has been built on championship successes, there is a level of desperation to get one over the line.
‘It’s always going to be difficult to get that first one. I lived through it as a Man Utd fan in the early 90s.

‘Klopp needs to remain composure because if he loses his temper or gets emotional, that will just rebound.
‘The players and the fans haven’t been there before. He has been there before.’
Liverpool’s next fixture is against Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday.
