Jurgen Klopp spoke to reporters at his pre-match press conference ahead of Liverpool's visit of Turf Moor to face on Wednesday night.

The Reds are amidst their busiest period of the calendar and after beating local rivals on Sunday, Klopp's side are back in action in midweek.

They will be hoping to keep up pace with Pep Guardiola's , who remain two points ahead at the top of the table.

Speaking at his press conference, Klopp insisted that the Reds must forget about the victory against Marco Silva's side and remain focused on Wednesday's clash.

“It was brilliant in the dressing room after the game (on Sunday) but can you carry it for two or three days? The whole season is still there, we feel in a good moment,” said Klopp.

“We have to be ready, there's nothing negative in winning late against Everton. I should not be concerned that we struggle to realise that Burnley starts again at 0-0 and we have to fight another 95 minutes.

“I think that's disrespectful to my players if I tell them that. We have to be ready, 38 times in the league and as much as we can in the other competitions.”

Klopp insisted that his players know the challenge Burnley will present and they must be recover and be ready for a 'tough' game.

“We are now all long enough together to know about the specific challenge in a game against Burnley,” he said.

“It's a really tough place to go, since I'm in it was always tough.

“We don't think or speak too much about the game before, sometimes things are obviously similar or different, but it's really not like this.

“We have to make sure that we are ready every three days, and that's exactly what has to happen now.”

Klopp also gave an update on his squad, admitting that he was unsure whether Sadio Mane (foot) or (dead leg) will be fit in time for the clash against the Clarets.
