Jurgen Klopp today spoke of the pressures his Liverpool side can face, even after a victory, because of the attacking football the public grew used to seeing from them last season.
'He has qualities like Joe [Gomez] has, like Dejan [Lovren] has, like Joel [Matip] has, so that is really good for us.
"It's good to have them back and it's probably the first time that all midfield players, apart from Ox, are available", Klopp said.
"The spectacular football didn't happen each game but it didn't happen past year as well".
"On Tuesday (it) was a massive knock that wasn't expected". "We played a lot of good games". "We are here to get results like all the other teams as well". We were in the Champions League final past year and that's the last impression, with all the spectacular games and whatever.
"We all struggle a bit in the last game but it's not too important, I don't make a big fuss of it, or on the other side I don't celebrate performances after when we win a good one".
Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 26 Premier League home games, their longest such run since August 2009 (31 games).
"I do not say it is serious we lost two times, but of course we have to make sure that it will not happen again, otherwise it will be hard". I'm very happy to be here and I'm settling in very well, but I think it's going to be much, much better the longer I settle in. "But we have to not be satisfied with it but see it in the right way, rather positive", Klopp said in his pre-match press conference. I can imagine how they feel in the moment.
"I'm not sure I can expect that, but it would help if you would watch a few Fulham games before you ask questions like this".
Klopp also touched on the standards of performance that the champions Manchester City are setting, the style and substance of which, he feels, mean just winning doesn't seem like enough to the pack chasing them for supremacy in English football.
"You will never score a goal against a team like Fulham if you go to win the game with the wrong attitude, and think about scoring, scoring, scoring".
