Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool need to play with a higher pace and tempo on a more consistent basis in order to challenge for honours.
The Reds have enjoyed something of a resurgence under the former Borussia Dortmund boss and they missed out on League Cup glory this term after being defeated by Manchester City on penalties.
Liverpool did manage to knock fierce rivals Manchester United out of the Europa League last-16 last time out and their reward is a quarter-final clash against Klopp’s former club.
However, despite the recent good performances, the teamÂ’s ability to produce the goods on a regular basis has been called into question after some poor results in the Premier League.
Klopp knows there is still a lot of work required to get his side to the level he wants but he hopes the players can start to play with more consistency as time goes on.
“We are a possession team but we are a team with an intense style…we need a higher rhythm,” he said. “The players have quality, everyone can see this, it is important we feel better in this style of play.”
