Klopp explains why he is still Liverpool boss as he admits he is keen to deliver.

The Merseyside club have lost their last three games in all competitions since thrashing arch-rivals Manchester United 7-0 at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp believes the only reason he is still the Liverpool manager is "because of the past" glories rather than the present.

The Reds have not been able to replicate the form of the past few seasons as they currently sit in the 8th spot in the Premier League table, eight points behind the fourth spot.

Ex-Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers and Graham Potter were sacked on Sunday, which amounts to a total of 12 managers, who have been relieved of their duties this season.

However, despite Liverpool's current woes, Klopp's position at the Anfield helm hasn't been questioned by the Reds' faithful, and the media, but the 55-year-old German insists that "if it was my first season it would be slightly different.

"I'm aware of the fact that I'm sitting here because of the past, not because of what we did this season."

The Liverpool boss continued: "We have smart owners, they know about the situation.

"There is no need [for me] to be afraid, I am here to deliver, I'm not here as a talisman or for murals on house walls.

"I know I'm still here because of what happened in the last few years.

"I don't like the fact that I pretty much have to rely on that. Is it right or not? We'll see in the future."

Liverpool, who have a game in hand, travel to west London to play Chelsea on Tuesday evening, with the Reds keen to turn their current fortunes around.

"I'm fully in, there's no doubt about that, but we have to sort it," the ex-Dortmund coach said. "We cannot continue playing as we do from time to time. That's not allowed.

"I'm really disappointed about us, that we do these kinds of things, but it happened. Now we have to find a way out and that's what we're constantly working on."
