Reds manager says light training sessions keeping the team fresh for trip to Cardiff City

Jurgen Klopp says his Liverpool side are raring to go on all fronts as they look to win a first Premier League title as well as claim the UEFA Champions League.

Liverpool travel to Cardiff City on Sunday, four days after beating Porto to reach the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.

Klopp says tailored training sessions are helping his team stay fresh as they aim to go back above Manchester City, who retook the lead after beating Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 on Saturday.

"We are not tired," he told the club's official website. "It's the decisive period of the season and that we are involved in two more competitions is a sign for success.

"Training is really low intensity in the moment because we cannot do a lot. The most important sessions in the week are the games we play."

Liverpool face Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals, on 1 and 7 May, but Klopp says Sunday's match against relegation-fighting Cardiff is his priority.

"Before Barcelona is Cardiff and Huddersfield [Town] and that's exactly the same importance to us as the other game after that," Klopp said.

"There's a massive job to do at the weekend."
