2. (SOUNDBITE) (English) JUERGEN KLOPP, LIVERPOOL MANAGER, SAYING:

“We didn’t lose a lot of games in the last two and a half years or so, but we lost them, and they always feel like defeats. So far we always used that for the next games, not only for the next game but for the next games.

“If you think about things we didn’t do well in this department we have to show a reaction, the reaction doesn’t mean that we have to change everything, we just have to be spot on in these moments, and we cannot switch off or whatever.”

4. (SOUNDBITE) (English) JUERGEN KLOPP, LIVERPOOL MANAGER, SAYING:

“This season is a very special season, it’s special for us in a positive way but special as well from a challenging point of view. Not only that we had three months break in the middle of the season, as well we play as well in the last three weeks or however long it is, we play pretty much six games, which means every three days you play a game. That’s really demanding for all of us, and yes we have to read the game in this situation and that’s what I like about the game last night as well, the attitude was brilliant, we were really fighting, the desire was there, it was all there. We were four moments not focused enough, and maybe there are some explanations for that, the quality of (Manchester) City using these situations and we have to make sure we don’t have moments like this in the game on Sunday, still two days time to prepare that.”

6. (SOUNDBITE) (English) JUERGEN KLOPP, LIVERPOOL MANAGER, SAYING:

“I saw last night how we did it, because with the desire, the greed and all the examples I saw last night, that’s why we are where we are, and we will not stop being like this. But of course, and that’s always the same, you need to be 100% concentrated all moments of the game, and especially against City because they use each little mistake you make.”

“We are still hungry, we are still full of hunger whatever. The boys showed me the necessary commitment, the desire, everything you need. But in the end it’s a football game and key moments decide the game and we have to be there in the key moments.”

11. (SOUNDBITE) (English) JUERGEN KLOPP, LIVERPOOL MANAGER, SAYING:

“That shows that it’s probably difficult, it’s obviously difficult, but you can’t do that without thinking about how many games and stuff like that. We never thought about it, how long the run is or whatever, to lose or that we win, all that kind of stuff. We have to respect (Aston) Villa, we respect their situation, we know the situation they are in and before the game it looks like with our numbers and Villa’s numbers that it’s clear, but we never saw football games like this. I cannot approach a football game or prepare a football game where I think…Aston Villa has a lot of quality and they do well.”
