Liverpool defender Matip happy to give Klopp headache

Dejan Lovren is a doubt to face Bayern Munich

Dejan Lovren is a doubt to face Bayern Munich

They are second favourites in the race with Manchester City but Fabinho hopes the experience he had with Monaco, when team that consisted of Kylian Mbappe, Benjamin Mendy and Thomas Lermar trumped Paris Saint-Germain, can be repeated.

"I haven't won anything so that's part of the truth, we don't have to think about 2022, it's a long way to go".

Klopp's efforts since joining the club in 2015 have pushed them close to the pinnacle, with last season's defeat in the Champions League final their best accomplishment in recent years.

"As long as we all enjoy the ride here, and I mean all - from the owners, the players to the supporters, to everyone around the club - we can try it and try it, but at the moment if one of those groups isn't happy any more, then we shouldn't stretch it and say "come on, try to do it".

"We know we are [competing] at the top of the table and it is important to be there at this point in the league, but we cannot think just about the title every time because that can put extra pressure on us. Enjoy the games and go on the pitch with happiness and go game by game".

That could lead Liverpool to sign players who won't necessarily immediately improve their options in attack for the 2019/20 campaign.

The situation was unfamiliar and hard for the 20-year-old, but he is confident he will be back in the starting XI soon, having appeared as a substitute in the 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

"I know how hard it is to play in Liverpool".

"It was something I've never really experienced before in being injured", he said.

"I feel good; it was good to get a bit of fitness in there at the weekend and that'll help me get back to full fitness and to push on and hopefully start a few games in the next few weeks".

Five-time European champions Liverpool have been handed a big transfer boost following the news that Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona are yet to agree on a move for one of their transfer targets ahead of this summer.
