Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has called for fans to help the club in their quest to win the Premier League this season, Saying they will fight with every fibre for the trophy.

Jurgen Klopp has urged his Liverpool players to fight with every fibre of their bodies for the Premier League title, while also issuing a rallying call to supporters. The Reds host Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday, knowing victory will take them back to the top of the table with a three-point cushion before Manchester City host Chelsea.

Klopp has urged fans to be loud against Bournemouth and arrive earlier if possible

After dropping points with consecutive draws against Leicester and West Ham, Liverpool’s title credentials have come under scrutiny despite Klopp’s side being defeated only once all season. Of the reaction to City making up ground on his men, Klopp replied: “I didn’t read or watch it but I still know it. We know if you want to be top of the table and champion at the end of the season you have to show real passion, real desire, you have to fight that’s what you have to do.

“I got a message this week – and that’s another sign that maybe people think I need help but thank you very much I’m fine – it said in the last 12 games City dropped 10 points and we dropped seven. I didn’t know that because I don’t think like that but obviously the view from outside is completely different. The only tool we really have to sort our situation is football and is passion and a proper fight – being aggressive in the most legal way.”

Klopp confirmed that Trent Alexander-Arnold returned to first-team training this week, while captain Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum are also back in contention. The German boss has made a plea to Liverpool fans to replicate the determination of the players and turn Anfield into a cauldron of atmosphere, even if it means getting into the stadium much earlier than usual.

“We have to show on the pitch we are ready to fight, and the people on the stand have to show they are ready to fight as well. I’ve never left in doubt how much I appreciate the support and believe in the help. We have to fight but then our crowd is always there. I’m not sure if I experienced yet that the supporters are there early – it’s completely different to Germany, a lot of them are one and a half hours there before,” Klopp said.

“I’m long enough here to be used to it, but of course it would be nice. The good thing is all of us know what to do – the players on the pitch and the people in the stand. I don’t know if I have to ask for it but whoever wants us to succeed in this game and wants to help… I don’t have the English impression for it but it’s like shouting your soul onto the pitch, that’s how we say it in German. We’ve created a very good basis for this finish. I know we will be ready with each fibre of our bodies to fight for everything. Then after the season we can look back and say we gave our everything, that is how it is.”
