Jurgen Klopp says his Liverpool side have “nothing to lose” in their remaining matches of the season.

The Reds head to Leeds United on Monday night lying eighth in the table, five points behind seventh-placed Brighton & Hove Albion, as they battle for European qualification.

“We have nothing to lose really,” Klopp told Liverpool’s official website. “We are in a position where we don’t want to be in the table. That means we have to act a little bit like this. We have to try new things, we have to fight for things, that's how it is.

“The things we tried so far this season didn't work out properly and especially not consistently, and that's what we have to do.

“All the things are on the table, everything is clear. Our home record is not as bad as the away record but we play away.

“Anyway, I'm looking forward to the game and it's a tough one. Leeds will go with all they have, we have to go with all we have and these kind of things. Leeds will never be an easy game whenever you go there.”

Search for consistency

Liverpool looked back to something approaching their best last weekend against leaders Arsenal, registering 21 shots on goal as they fought back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2.

But in a frustratingly up-and-down season, Klopp has pointed out what happened after the Reds' 7-0 home win over Manchester United in March.

“The game after United was [the defeat at] Bournemouth, wasn't it?” he said. “I think we all agree it's not our best season, with the two highest results in our history, so absolutely strange.

"It always shows, ‘OK, they can do that. Why can’t they do it every week?’ And that's a good question and we have to work on the answer, absolutely.

“Things happened because we are not consistent this season, were not consistent this season, and that's the problem.”
