Jurgen Klopp Makes Liverpool Fans Demand Against Arsenal after Thrashing West Ham 5-1

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp expressed disappointment with the atmosphere generated by his team’s supporters during Wednesday’s EFL Cup quarter-final at Anfield.

The Reds secured a commanding 5-1 victory over West Ham in the match, showcasing their prowess just three days after a goalless draw with Manchester United in the Premier League.

While Klopp was pleased with the performance of his players in the midweek fixture, he called upon the fans to enhance their support and create a more vibrant atmosphere at the stadium.

“In the first half, when the boys played exceptionally, I was not overly happy with the atmosphere behind me,” Klopp said in a post-game media conference.

“I asked people: ‘What do they want?’ We changed a lot of things and we dominated West Ham like crazy and missed chances. If I was in the stands, I would be on my toes, 1,000%.

“I don’t know if the Man United game was that bad that we have to say sorry we didn’t smash them?”

Liverpool’s upcoming match is scheduled for Saturday evening, with Premier League leaders Arsenal coming to Anfield.

Should Liverpool secure a victory against the Gunners, they would ascend to the top spot in the league standings.

Before the crucial fixture, Klopp has encouraged the fans, emphasising the importance of their support by either joining in the chants or choosing to watch from home.

“We need Anfield on Saturday,” Klopp added.

“Arsenal didn’t play this week. Anyone who knows anything about them knows they will be prepared, so we need Anfield on their toes from the first second, without me having an argument with the opposition coach. We need you from the first second.

“So if you really want, if it is too much football in December, I don’t know, sorry we have to play it as well. But if you are not in the right shape, give your ticket to somebody else.”

Wednesday’s victory over West Ham occurred approximately 72 hours after Liverpool’s goalless encounter with Manchester United over the weekend.
