are in a better situation in the Champions League, as they were able to defeatRB Leipzig
in the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League.
The Reds boss
has now talked about his team’s situation and mentality.
"I can't think about winning the Champions League now as we have to go through this difficult round,"
"This week we play these three games, late in the season, with two days in between, Thursday, Sunday and Wednesday, and it is tough.
"We see who we can field on Sunday and then who can play on Wednesday but it is not that we gave up on the Premier League, that will never happen.
"There is no game we can play and lose and people say, 'Ah ... look at the line-up.'
"Liverpool is too big, too many people are interested. We don't play behind closed doors really without cameras, it is in front of our people and we feel the responsibility that in each game we have to give our absolute everything to win it.
"If that doesn't happen then people will think, 'that's not enough'. We don't change our attitude."
