Rhys Williams‘ reminder that there are “two to go” will be repeated in the halls of Kirkby on Monday, with focus shifting to the trip to Turf Moor, where Burnley will play in front of 3,500 of their supporters.

It will be Klopp’s task now to bring Liverpool back down to earth ahead of the journey to Burnley, but this comeback victory can serve as the inspiration for a perfect week ahead.
Two games to go, two victories required; that never-give-up spirit will be crucial.
