Liverpool belief can keep flowing, insists Klopp

By Graham Luney

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp praised his players after the Reds thumped Stoke City 4-1 at Anfield and moved to second in the Premier League, closing the gap on leaders Chelsea to six points.

The win sets up Liverpool nicely for Saturday's massive home clash with title rivals Manchester City.

Stoke went ahead through Jon Walters, but Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino scored before half-time before Giannelli Imbula's own goal and Daniel Sturridge's first strike in the Premier League this season, 56 seconds after coming off the bench, wrapped things up.

"Confidence is not a problem at the moment. We know about our quality, but obviously we don't show it all the time," said Klopp.
