Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has called on the club’s supporters to “should their soul out” as his team continues the chase for the Premier League title this afternoon.
The Reds were knocked off of top spot in midweek when Manchester City won 2-0 at Everton. Pep Guardiola’s team took full advantage of Liverpool’s disappointing 1-1 draw away to West Ham United on Monday night.
However, the Merseysiders can reclaim top spot later today when they host Bournemouth at home and Klopp is urging anyone with a soft spot for the Reds to rally behind them as they seek to end a 29-year wait for their 19th league title.
“Whoever wants us to succeed and wants to help, shouting your soul is how we say it in German,” Klopp told reporters ahead of the clash with Eddie Howe’s side.
“I don’t think anybody thought we would be top with 12 points between us and other teams,” the former Borussia Dortmund coach added. “The good news is we are still in there but the only chance to improve is by winning football games.
“It’s getting exciting now. It was always clear that it would be tight until the end. The only chance to improve our position is by winning football games.”
Manchester City will be in action on Sunday evening when they host Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium.
