Jurgen Klopp has urged Liverpool supporters to concentrate on tonight’s match and ignore his looming departure. Chelsea will visit Anfield in an attempt to make a statement against the league leaders under Mauricio Pochettino’s leadership.
The manager of Liverpool announced last week that he will be departing the team at the end of the current campaign. Since joining the Merseyside team in October 2015, Klopp has come to be associated with Liverpool. He will look to cap off his final season with a significant trophy haul, though Chelsea’s goal in the forthcoming Carabao Cup final is to catch Liverpool flat.
For the rest of the season, Klopp’s choice and Liverpool’s prospective replacement will be hot topics of conversation. The 56-year-old coach is well aware of Chelsea’s desire to sabotage the joyous environment surrounding Anfield, though.
In his pre-match programme notes, Klopp stated, “This is definitely an occasion to forget that the manager is leaving at the end of the season and to do everything that we can as a collective to make it as uncomfortable as we possibly can for a really strong opponent.” “We will undoubtedly create an opportunity to take another step forward if we can accomplish this together.”
With a victory at Anfield, Chelsea may close the gap on West Ham in fifth place to just one point, while Liverpool will be looking to reclaim their five-point advantage at the top of the standings. In response to a question concerning the environment his team would confront against Liverpool, Pochettino acknowledged that Chelsea aims to ruin the celebration.
“Obviously. He plays a unique kind of game. It will always be unique till the very end, according to Pochettino. “Every time they play at Anfield, there will be a celebration and a party to show him all the love the fans have for him, which I believe is well-deserved.
However, we believe that we must go there and prevail in the match. We apologise, but we would like not to participate in or be a part of the festivities. Our goal is to win the game and play well.”
