Liverpool’s season is on an upward curve after a goal-laden start but Jurgen Klopp knows it is still far too early to make judgements.
Ten points from their opening five Premier League matches has them handily placed in sixth after a difficult start saw them go to Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham.
Goals – 19 in seven games in all competitions – have been flying in with 10 different scorers already but Klopp has cautioned about getting carried away.
“Nothing has happened until now. We’ve only played five league games plus two cup games,” said the German.
“We need to find stability and create solutions for each situation. We are still working on that.
“We need to be ready for each game. There’s no time to look for excuses. We want to perform. We have the biggest expectation from ourselves.
“We don’t think: ‘Ah, we’ve got it’. Football is quite a simple game but it’s difficult to win.
“It’s not about celebrating ourselves but it’s better to have an optimistic mood than for everything to be in doubt. It’s up to us to use that.
“That’s how it is in football. We have to be ready for the next game. It’s not about the past.”
