“You feel immediately that it’s different, no one is really believing in us. You can feel it. If we do good then it’s: ‘Yes it’s good’ and if we don’t do good then it’s: ‘Oh, they’ve done it again.’”

Jürgen Klopp is well accustomed to the fluctuating emotions around Liverpool and, as the above reflection on Sevilla demonstrates, Gary Roberts Womens Jersey knew what was coming the moment Guido Pizarro equalised in the 93rd minute of their Champions League mayhem on Tuesday. Back http://www.officialhockeyknights.com/Jake-Bischoff-Jersey-Adidas on the defensive. Calling for perspective once again. Liverpool remain top of their Champions League group and can draw level on points with the champions, Chelsea, in the Premier League on Saturday with a fourth successive home win. Yet the question of trust lingers. Klopp insists he trusts this Liverpool team implicitly. He senses that belief is not universal.
Liverpool’s setbacks have been rare this season yet their dramatic nature has strengthened the image of a reckless team. A 5-0 defeat at Manchester City, after Sadio Mané was sent off at 1-0; a Carabao Cup loss at Leicester City having squandered a procession of chances; a calamitous 4-1 reverse at Tottenham Hotspur, their second league defeat of the campaign; and now the second-half collapse in Andalusia.
The positivity generated from straightforward wins over Southampton, West Ham United, Maribor and Huddersfield Town before the trip to Sevilla trampled in 48 minutes.
Klopp maintains that Kevin Durant Womens Jersey only the performance at Wembley and when Liverpool “stopped playing” at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán were genuine causes for concern. Two performances out of 20, in other words. And yet the manager of a team that have conceded once at home in the Premier League this season – the lowest in the division along with Manchester United – admits consistency remains “a job” and “a challenge” for Liverpool. Klopp’s team have exhilarated more often than floundered this season. The issue of trust, he argues, lies with those who expect perfection. Liverpool’s manager is not one of them.
“Yes, of course I trust this team,” he said before Chelsea’s visit. “It depends on what you expect. Do I expect perfection and then I can trust? No. Then I could not trust, that would be true. Against Sevilla if we win 3-2 or 4-2, which was possible easily, it is exactly the same story. I cannot ignore it.
“The moment we conceded the third goal then everything changed for everybody, but not for me. If you don’t close the game these things can happen. “We made mistakes but they made mistakes. They made a lot of unbelievable mistakes by the way. I can trust this team.
“We could have done better in a lot of games but that doesn’t minimise my trust, that’s the thing you have to accept. We try and try and try. In this moment we can’t change anything
“I think it was the best lineup we could have chosen, somebody maybe thought we could have played Emre [Can] from the beginning, but there was not a lot of things with the lineup we should have changed. We were 3-0 up, we scored two goals from set pieces, fantastic, http://www.officialsharksteamonline.com/Joel_Ward_Jersey exactly the same, scored the third, played a fantastic pass for the fourth – that’s a really good performance. But then you don’t close the game and in an atmosphere like this then things like this can be possible.”
Klopp’s trust extended to Alberto Moreno following another costly display by the left-back against his former club. The Liverpool manager claims he was “100% responsible” for Moreno’s mistakes having started the defender who was treated “like a family member in Sevilla” and lost “one, two, three per cent concentration” as a consequence.
“I told him I still trust him 100%,” added Klopp. “I can imagine what people are saying. I can’t be interested in that. The thing I try to really teach the players is that the only thing that is important is what I think for their future. My back is big enough to take what people say about me – if I trust him or my faith in him. We have to carry on. The problem is the whole world watches our mistakes.
