Joel Matip believes Liverpool have the stepping-stone they need to reignite their season.
The Reds enter Sunday’s clash with Tottenham on a high following Tuesday’s 7-0 Champions League win away to NK Maribor.
After a series of frustrating weeks in front of goal, Jurgen Klopp’s men used their trip to Slovenian as a chance to compensate for missed opportunities.
Matip is hopeful the team can use that emphatic win as springboard for the rest of the campaign.
“I think the Maribor game will give us more self-confidence, but even before the game we were not in doubt about our quality,” the defender told Liverpoolfc.com.
“I think this could be the start of something special and now we have to work hard to make that happen.”
“Tottenham are a high-quality team with skills in defence, offense, everywhere, and yes it will be a tough and hard game, but we will not hide and we’ll do our best to win there.”
“We are looking forward to this game and we are positive we can get something.”
Liverpool in a ruthless goal-scoring mood promise to put on a show at Wembley against a Tottenham side equally confident after an impressive 1-1 draw against Real Madrid.
A key positive heading into the fixture is the gradual return to form for Roberto Firmino, who scored two much-needed goals in the midweek rout.
With Mohamed Salah and Philippe Coutinho both also in sparkling form, Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs side face a tough defensive test.
This Liverpool team is just getting started.
