Jurgen Klopp refusing to get carried away with any glimmer of success is something we are very used to by now.
The cautious and underdog mentality that everyone at the club has adopted is not a sign of nerves or a lack of belief towards the idea that we are capable of achieving great things.
It is a sign that this team is determined to avoid getting ahead of itself or taking anything for granted at the risk this could result in a drop in performance levels.
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo about his side’s promising start to the campaign, Klopp said: “It doesn’t feel like this perfect start or whatever. It feels only like we did what we had to do.”
“Until now, nobody has celebrated anything. I think the obvious thing is not to talk about it. We won’t get carried away”
“Everything we have done until now has been really hard work. Nothing of it felt like ‘woah, that was easy’.”
Taking things a game at a time is the only thing we can do in such an unpredictable league.
The past few weeks are an example of that with knocks to the likes of Adam Lallana, Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino in addition to the news of the lengthy injury layoff Philippe Coutinho will endure, causing doubts to arise.
Klopp will rarely express any excitement towards a run of strong displays or his team’s position in the league and that is the exact attitude that the players need to work under.
They have thrived under it up until now so there is no reason to change things.
