Jurgen Klopp has called on his Liverpool to ‘restart’ their campaign following their weekend loss at the hands of Watford.
Liverpool suffered their first loss of the season at Vicarage Road on Saturday-ending a 44-game unbeaten streak in the Premier League-and according to Klopp, his team need to reset heading into the final months of the season.
"Sometimes a little knock is important. So I don't see anything negative in it. From time to time if you are not good enough, you need to see the effect. Not good enough-what happens then? So restart.
"Maybe the longer the run goes maybe it becomes more important. But I didn't see that. Now it is over. We can start again with whatever we did before, and we will," Klopp is quoted by UK tabloids.
Klopp further asserted that he is sure his side will react after the setback and rubbished the thought that they were influenced by the outside world.
"You cannot win the number of games the boys have done if they are easily influenced by the outside world, and we will see how they react.
"But I don't know because I've never won 18 games in a row and didn't lose 44 the first time in my life. How they react we shall see," he added.
Klopp's men are back in action on Tuesday when they make the trip to Chelsea for the FA Cup fifth round.
