Watch: ’s pre-match presser – vs Liverpool

spoke to reporters at Melwood ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League clash against on Thursday night.

The Reds have a staggering 13-point lead at the top of the table with two games in hand, with the league title looking ever closer in sight.

Jurgen Klopp’s side beat fierce rivals 2-0 on Sunday, with large swathes of the Anfield faithful finally expressing their confidence in Liverpool’s title charge, with the familiar chant of ‘We’re gonna win the league’ ringing out from the Kop.

The hard work continues for Klopp and co at Molineux on Thursday night, with Nuno Espirito Santo’s high-flying Wolves lying in wait.

Speaking ahead of the game, the Reds boss explained how tricky it is to face Wolves: “Wolves are not only this year, but last year, really difficult to play.

“They play a similar system to other teams. It depends a little bit how they set up – three or five at the back. But they do it differently, Coady has a different role, they make the pitch really big and ask you for a lot of footwork.

“You have to run a lot. That’s normal and good, it’s their way to play. For us, there are solutions for that but not without working a lot.

“You cannot play on a 50 or 60 per cent basis against Wolves, then you have absolutely no chance. That’s the challenge for that game.”

Liverpool have smashed several records so far this season and are on target for plenty more come the end of May. However, Klopp still believes his side have plenty of room for improvement, notably their ability to kill off games.

“Concentration level,” Klopp bemoaned. “The last five minutes of the first half and the last 20 minutes [of the game] when United came back the game should have been decided already.

“I get it 100 percent, we are all human beings and that is normal. We do a lot of things right in the right way, dominate the game but don’t finish the situation off.

“The quality in the Premier League is just too high. There is a lot of space for improvement. How can we help ourselves? How lively can we stay even without creating constantly?

“We need to find a common way in these situations to still dominate the game in a slightly different manner.”

The boss also provided a brief fitness update on his squad, with returning to training this week. However, the likes of , and remain sidelined, although they should be “back soon.”
