Despite Liverpool's impressive form throughout the past year, Jürgen Klopp still feels the team needs more improvement.
For the first time in 30 years, Liverpool appears vigorously prepared to tighten its grip on the Premier League title, in light of the successive victories in the last period on the one hand, and the big difference of points and the fact that the team outperforms its closest competitors in the competition on the other hand.
Despite the importance of the derby match that awaits the team against Everton on Sunday in the FA Cup, Klopp puts in his calculations the difficulty of the following confrontations that await him in the Premier League (Against Tottenham and Manchester United on January 11 and 19).
Klopp may resort to rest some of his key players, especially with some of them suffering from strain, after the team played 6 strong matches within the last 17 days.
For Over a calendar year, Liverpool have not suffered a defeat in the league, which Klopp is looking forward to continue in the coming period to get more steps closer to regain the absent league title for 3 decades.
"It is a difficult period of the year," Klopp said. "I will do what I see appropriate. I can make some decisions myself. And the training staff will suggest some things to me."
No matter how important the FA Cup is, Klopp places the Premier League title a top priority.
"There is an opportunity for further improvement," Klopp said. "We can do better and we must."
The victory over Sheffield last round was the team's nineteenth in 20 matches played so far in the league.
And about this new year win Klopp commented to the media:
"I feel very happy and very proud of my team,"
"Our new year begins in mid-May. We focus on the season, not the new year."
