Manager Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool must not rest on their laurels


Manager Jurgen Klopp says there is no chance that Liverpool will grow complacent after reaching the Europa League Final in mid-week.

The Reds were not at their very best on Sunday but still managed to battle past Watford by 2-0.

They host Chelsea at Anfield on Wednesday before closing the Premier League season away at West Bromwich Albion on May 15.

"Again, [a] good [performance]," Klopp told reporters.

"All the changes until now were not an issue. In Swansea it was not a problem, in Swansea it was difficult for all of us. It was my first game at 12 o'clock, it was my first meeting at 10 o'clock.

"I'm pretty sure I was not in the best shape in the meeting so why can I expect my players would be in the best shape at 12? We have had a lot of games and a lot of them were at 8 o'clock in the evening, so it's a big difference.

"We didn't play too well, that's the truth. But today, no problem with changes, a real professional performance. We did what was necessary. It was not brilliant or a game for the LFC museum, it was a professional performance. We were the better team and deserved to win, so I am very happy.

"We have to play football. We play on Wednesday against Chelsea, in my opinion one of the biggest games in world football. Liverpool and Chelsea, nice clubs, let's play.

"If you start resting now, you have no chance a week on Wednesday in Basel. We have to do what we have to do. For a few months we have tried to manage the intensity, that's what we have done the whole time. We will do it like this for the next 10 days – we play Chelsea, West Brom and Sevilla."
