Liverpool have had an excellent start to the 2023/24 Premier League season.
The Reds are currently 3rd in the division heading into gameweek 6.
They have won four, drawn one, scored 12 and conceded four. This has led to a belief that Liverpool will be in the title picture once more this term.
When quizzed on Liverpool’s return to form, Jurgen Klopp said this ahead of facing West Ham on Sunday:
“I understand why you are asking me this. It was not long ago I was being asked about us being 1-0 down, 1-0 down, 1-0 down,” he said.
“I understand that this may come up again some time, but this feels completely different.
“When I said that phrase (mentality monsters) at that time, it was not that I planned that way. I just remember watching a game and thinking, ‘oh my God, how did they come back?’.
“Now it is just that we have changed a few things and turned games around. Staying in a game is a duty and we did that so far which is why we have turned situations.
“Mentality? That is something we will create. What we have now is a mood. This is a spirit we have created because the boys really like playing with each other.
“It is a close group. It is early, that is obvious, and we made 11 changes (against LASK) and when you saw the spirit of the boys at the start it was not like we are on holiday.
“If you saw the dressing room there was a real competitive mood there. I liked that a lot. Again, the boys who came on enjoyed the minutes they got.
“Something is growing but I have no clue how it will go.”
