Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian has opened up on a recent team meeting.
The Reds are set to return to Premier League action on Sunday. Jurgen Klopp’s side currently possesses a 22-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.
Adrian told ESPN: “We have a little step left but we are not going back down just to win those two games and put on our flip-flops. We want to return to win the nine games [remaining] if it’s possible, exceed the 100 points and that, in the end, this team make history for everything we have done on the pitch.”
Adrian added: “A few days ago we had a meeting with [Jurgen Klopp] and the entire squad and we talked about all that, that this season is going to be historic for many things; obviously due to the virus, because the season had to be stopped and then we had to resume it. But we want to make it historic for us, for Liverpool and for what we are achieving.”
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
It is great to hear such comments from Adrian, and I’ll explain why. Liverpool have not played a Premier League fixture for three months.
Despite that being the case, the Reds are motivated to finish the season strongly going by Adrian’s comments.
I think setting a goal such as breaking Manchester City’s record will help keep everyone focused and motivated. Liverpool only need six points to secure the title, so they need something else to aim for.
Liverpool need to secure 19 points from their final nine games to break Manchester City’s record. The Reds have only dropped five points from 29 matches in the Premier League this season.
That does suggest that they are a very good chance of eclipsing 100 points.
