“We obviously left a gap between us and the much more exciting spots in the table, but we consider ourselves at the moment within punching distance, and that means we’ve to chase, and that is what we will do,” said Klopp.
“All the players who are back from the World Cup now look really on it, that is very important.
“I think some of them could really gain confidence even when it probably wasn’t that low before, but a good World Cup, like for Hendo [Henderson], for example, is for sure helpful.
“So we’re really looking forward to what is coming up, but we know it’s intense. There are never guarantees out there, and I can imagine at Arsenal that everybody is buzzing to go again, [Manchester] City, you saw, they have expectations and ambitions.”
