Klopp: Liverpool still enjoying the pressure.

Liverpool thriving under pressure.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says his team are enjoying playing their game and they are not feeling the pressure of chasing a double late in the season.

The Reds are two points clear off second-placed Manchester City in the Premier League table - although the champions have a game in hand, and they are in the last four of the Champions League after beating FC Porto 6-1 on aggregate. However, Klopp sees their current situation as an opportunity to win their first league title since 1990 and a chance to show what they are made of in Europe’s elite competition.

"We still don't feel the pressure. We see and feel it as an opportunity. We are used to the challenge, playing a season like we played – it's usually pretty positive," he told UK newspapers.

"They are massive games, such an interesting period and so positive. We are really enjoying it. It's good that you are involved in two competitions. It's a sign of success.

"Now, it's about how you mix your potential with attitude. We obviously have good players, and mix it with a world-class attitude. We did that from the first day of the season and so far it worked out – we are difficult to play against."
