Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool will stick to their principals in pursuit of their first Premier League title in 29 years and sees no need to change their approach.
The Reds have surrendered a 10-point lead over defending champions Manchester City and now trail Pep Guardiola’s men by a point with nine games remaining.
Burnley are the Reds’ next opponents on Sunday, by which time City may have increased their advantage after they face Watford on Saturday teatime.
But Klopp will not ask his side to betray the approach that got them into the title race in the first place.
“The target is to win the game – not to go nuts in the game,” the German told the media. “The way we did it brought us where we are and if someone thinks we should now be 10 points ahead of City I can’t help this person.
“We are trying for the first time [for the title] and for the first time we are not in a bad position. Let’s do what brought us here, plus more intensity if possible. With a positive atmosphere around us, let’s try it and not be this little weak flower.
“We are in a position that I don’t think a lot of people expected with nine games to go. Let’s try everything. Be positive, be lively, be on the front foot, be a real threat, use your power, all your skills and then we will see.”
