Jurgen Klopp: 'Liverpool will not prioritise Premier League'

After narrowly scraping through to the knockout stages of the Champions League, Liverpool have been handed the daunting task of fending off Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich for any hope of emulating their Finals appearance in Kiev past year, with the first leg set to be held at Anfield on Tuesday 19th February. "We take it game by game, try to win games, to be successful". He is in a similar situation now with Liverpool - just the Premier League and then the Champions League on top.

Gundogan was, however, able to provide an insight into what it is like playing for a Jurgen Klopp team in a title race, having worked with him at Borussia Dortmund when they won the Bundesliga in 2011-12.

In the absence of Lovren and Gomez, Joel Matip will partner Van Dijk against West Ham, with midfielder James Milner expected to slot in at right back. Captain Jordan Henderson, who filled in at full-back in the 1-1 draw with Leicester City, has been unable to train fully recently due to a calf injury.

The Reds are in first place with 61 points and a 19-4-1 record, while West Ham is looking to find some sort of consistency.

Liverpool FC have the chance to once again move five points clear of Manchester City with victory against West Ham United at the London Stadium on Monday night.

I don't know where he got that from to be honest but it's all good, he is entitled to his view. We have to keep going, work hard and win games. That happens, it will happen again this season.

"I think it is easier for the Reds to play away from Anfield because of the massive expectancy when they are at home". So that's the season. Sometimes we have to put our egos in the second, third, fourth row because we have that huge quality in the squad and nobody can expect to play every single game, all the minutes. This team wants to win every game. We can not change that. But it's part of the game, part of the business that these decisions are made late April or May. We will see exactly how we do it.
