Klopp: Liverpool can handle the pressure

Liverpool have dodged the "banana peel" at London Stadium and instead strengthened their grip on a top-four finish in the English Premier League.

He had made a slow start in the new year after returning from an ankle injury, having contributed just one goal and no assists from his first nine Premier League appearances. "We prepare ourselves and try to do our best".

In addition, in the first round match of the current championship, dated December 11 past year, Liverpool did not cope with West Ham by drawing a 2: 2 draw.

With Man City, them and Arsenal, one of them won't make the top four. Liverpool break down the middle, and the ball is worked to Coutinho by Wijnaldum, who jinks past the defenders and shoots home.

"I feel sharp. I'm glad to be starting and providing chances for the boys".

But the breakthrough arrived in the 35th minute when Coutinho's exquisite through-ball, from inside his own half, exposed a gap the size of the nearby Blackwall Tunnel in West Ham's defence.

"We drew in the last game, we didn't score with a penalty and maybe people say then: 'They can't deal with pressure'".

"We still have two games and we are very ambitious that we get six points and climb up the table".

If Jurgen Klopp decides to play him in the midfield, where he has played most of the season, that would slide out Lucas and put Emre Can in the No. 6 role. From the resulting counter attack, Wijnaldum set up Coutinho who smashed home his second of the game. "We have two games and have it in our own hands to stay where we are now - and we will give our best to achieve this".

West Ham should have equalised just before half-time when Andre Ayew hit the post from two yards out and the visitors punished them with three more goals in the second period. "But if we can be as focused and fluent as today then it will be hard (for Middlesbrough)".

Jurgen Klopp's third-placed side will guarantee a spot in Europe's elite club competition if they defeat relegated Middlesbrough at Anfield next Sunday. Slaven Bilic's side have kept four clean sheets in their last five outings, meaning it is likely to be another tense affair for Klopp's players.

'Obviously today was a good sign, ' Klopp said.

"I have a good relationship with the manager and the fans have been brilliant. It can't be any bigger", he said.
