Klopp managing the best Liverpool ever - Gerrard

Tue 10 May 2022 | 7:56

Klopp's side have a chance in all three competitions left, but they will have a difficult mission.

Liverpool

legend Steven Gerrard has claimed that Jurgen Klopp has made the best Liverpool in history.

Liverpool are battling for a quadruple this season, although a 1-1 draw with

Tottenham Hotspur

in their recent Premier League game has increased their gap with Man City to three points and could cause the title to slip away from them. Although Liverpool have won the Champions League six times , Gerrard, who won the trophy in 2005 as captain of the Reds, believes that the current team is the best team in the history of the club.

"Because of the way the game has changed – it's gone quicker, it's gone faster – I think you're probably watching the best Liverpool team there has been. That's due to the speed, mentality and intensity of this current group.

"But I say that without disrespecting previous Liverpool teams because I grew up watching them. The European Cup winners, serial league title winners – I grew up on all of that. I'm well aware they've previously had world-class players, managers and teams." 

Liverpool face

Aston Villa

on Tuesday and Gerrard will face his former club again. Villa beat Liverpool 7-2 last season, but they have never won a home game against the Reds in two consecutive seasons.

Gerrard added:  

"We've got to make sure we're brave enough and show enough quality to hurt Liverpool.

"I'm never going to set a team up to just suffer for 90 minutes, but I don't want that to be gung-ho or careless. It has to be calculated. 

"At times we'll have to suffer but if we do that together and get through those situations, we believe with the form we're in, we'll have some interesting moments in the game. 

"That's what Tottenham did. They were organised, they were patient, and when their moments came, they did cause Liverpool some problems."
