Klopp relishing top-four pressure

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists he is enjoying the pressure of trying to lead the club to a top-four finish in the Premier League.

Klopp's charges claimed an important 1-0 win over Watford on Monday to open up a three-point lead over fourth-placed Manchester City, and four points over Manchester United.

However, both Mancunian clubs have a game in hand over the Reds, and Klopp knows there is pressure on his side to clinch a Champions League berth.

“I don’t think about it [Liverpool’s current position],” Klopp told the club's official website.

“We should start trying to think about things positively – the world is serious enough. We won, it was very important. We lost last week, it was not so nice.

“Now we play Southampton; does anybody think we already have the three points? It’s not like this. We have to work for it, that’s what we should do.

“In the end, you get what you deserve. You will get what you deserve. We will see what we deserve. In this moment, we have the opportunity to fight for it.

“This kind of pressure, I really love. To fight for something means you are in a good position.”
