Joe Gomez with interesting insight on Liverpool’s mentality heading into Chelsea clash Posted by Cameron Hogwood

They host Premier League leaders Chelsea on Tuesday with Mane back in contention after the Africa Cup of Nations after Liverpool only won one of the seven games the winger missed.

"But losing in three competitions is better than losing three in just one", Klopp told said.

Firmino has played a key role in Liverpool's season so far, scoring nine goals for the side this season.

Fast forward a month and their title chances are hanging by a thread, whilst they're also out of both cup competitions. If you only want to take these three games and say everything is, meanwhile, rubbish, then I can not change that. Nonetheless Gary is a formidable opponent and Michael will have to be on his A-game to beat him.

"I spoke about a few reasons about why it was not good in January but I don't want to think about the last few games any more". Teams like Chelsea have the benefit of worldwide class players sitting on the bench every game, a luxury which Liverpool do not enjoy.

Chelsea opted to recall Ake from his loan spell at Bournemouth last month after the Netherlands worldwide impressed for Eddie Howe's side with a return of three goals in 10 appearances in the Premier League for the Cherries. "We need especially faith and belief, confidence to be as confident as possible", said Klopp in addressing the media.

"We have a very good player back for selection, that's only good news". Come through the season somehow and next year we try again with different players and, if someone asks for it, a different manager?

"We came through December and most of January without Phil Coutinho (sidelined for almost seven weeks with ankle ligament damage)".

The Blues, meanwhile, are sitting pretty at the league's summit after winning 15 of their previous 16 top-flight fixtures and boast an eight-point lead over second-placed Arsenal.

"It's really important that we don't see it, if we lose, as the fourth game in a row..."

More than 8,000 packed out one end of Anfield and there were delirious scenes at full time.

"I think, yes, it should be allowed that we celebrate something like this".

"I can not decide about this, but I really think that we should try everything to make the best of the base we created until now".
