Jurgen Klopp believes his Liverpool team have become a “proper force” this season as they prepare to face Southampton tonight.
The Reds sit second in the table, just a point behind leaders Manchester City, with just six games left in the Premier League title race.
And Klopp was eager to praise his side ahead of another crucial match at St Mary’s.
“We have a really good team together, as a club,” said Klopp. “It’s a proper force, we have a lot of power in and around the club.
“Take all the dreams together and that can be a real high energy, or create a proper energy going forward.
“It took a while obviously until everybody thought it, but it’s obvious.
“We will probably qualify for the third time in a row for the Champions League, it’s been a while since that happened, we are fighting for the top spot in the league and we are in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, it’s obvious.”
He added: “We want to be a difficult opponent, for all the teams. We can improve, oh yes, so much, of course we can improve, we have to, but at the moment we put all our skills, all our potential, all our desire together and go for the next game.
“That’s what we’re doing at the moment. This year is to use what we have with 100% and that makes us a difficult opponent to play because we find different ways to win football games. We are always difficult to play.”
