Jurgen Klopp confident Liverpool can retain winning feeling

By Staff Reporter

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp hopes now his players have rediscovered the winning feeling the side can start to make progress.

The 1-0 Capital One Cup win over Bournemouth was a first for the German in four matches since he took over from Brendan Rodgers and could not have been better timed with a trip to Chelsea tomorrow.

"I saw in the eyes of all the players they wanted to win. I think the players understood better how to win. They want to do what I say," he said. "We had two meetings after Southampton and we understood why we had drawn and (against Bournemouth) we were the better team with a completely new team.

"I am nearly surprised why it is so good in this moment because normally when a new player comes in at the time of pre-season you lose some quality because they have to change other things in their game.

"That is the same with my team now (having to change methods from Rodgers) but young players think about football and not pressure and I think they know why they won."
