Jurgen Klopp admits Liverpool have lost their “flow” in recent months but says he “dreams” that his side can remain unbeaten from now till the end of the season.
Liverpool have won just one of their last 10 matches and have dropped to fifth in the Premier League standings ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s visit to Anfield on Saturday evening.
“We recognised at one point we lost the flow, of course,” Klopp told a news conference at Melwood.
“In this moment, you don’t only lose the flow and then you have this player out and this player is coming back but no rhythm.
“In my dreams we can win 14 games. I know how it sounds but I cannot change my dreams actually. That’s what I’m working for.”
Klopp refused to openly discuss reports stating Adam Lallana was close to signing a new long-term contract at the club.
The midfielder was in line to pen a new deal lasting till 2021 and would be paid a similar wage to that of Philippe Coutinho, who signed a new five-year contract last month and earns around £150,000 per week.
“First of all, Adam is a very important player for the squad, with a pretty long contract still,” Klopp said.
“How close [is he to signing a new contract]? We won’t talk about this, but it says nothing about his importance in the squad and in the team if we negotiate or not.
“How it is always: we speak with the player and then we have to speak to agents. When something is decided then we [will] inform you immediately, but not before.” – ESPN
