Klopp urges Liverpool to follow Marcus Rashford for success

Eliminated from FA Cup and EFL Cup, Liverpool's horrible season continues in the Premier League where they are sitting ninth, 21 points behind the league leaders Arsenal.

The Reds boss believes


can learn a lot from the example of

Marcus Rashford

, who has already bagged 18 goals across 31 appearances this term, after scoring just four times last season.

Ahead of Liverpool's Saturday Premier League clash with the Wolves,

Jurgen Klopp

told his press conference:

"One of the best examples is Marcus Rashford, the season he had last year and this year.

"I'm sure he can't really explain it. It's not like Marcus didn't want to deliver last year. Now he's flying.

"The time in between these two extremes, you have to use, you have to work and fight through it. Self-pity is not allowed in these moments. Only one person can change this, and it's yourselves. These things can happen and will happen, but it's about limiting the time to get back on track."

Klopp further urged Liverpool to show their capability of winning to finish the season strongly.


We love this game, the boys especially because they can play it still,"

Klopp said.

"A big part of it is the desire to win football games. When you don't achieve that, that's the hardest moment for all footballers on the planet.

"We were much better in a lot of areas [against Brighton], but in the end when the result is not right, it overshadows everything.

"When you've won the last five games, you don't have to prove that you can win football games because everybody knows. We have to prove this point, that's clear.

"We didn't win enough football games in the last few weeks and the whole season so far, so that's what we want."

On Liverpool's busy schedule, the


coach added:

"I don't worry about a run of fixtures. We have to use the time we have to improve, to play the football we want to play, to work on the things we think are necessary or massively necessary.

"We have only played half the season, which is crazy but means the second half of the season we can do whatever we want in a positive direction.

"We decide how positive the outcome will be."
