Klopp: Liverpool boast a secret sauce

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says key to their success this season is team unity.

The Reds returned to action following the international break - which had seen Joe Gomez fall victim to a long-term knee injury and Mohamed Salah ruled out after a positive coronavirus test - but swatted aside Leicester City 3-0 despite Brendan Rodgers' side coming to Anfield on the back of six straight victories.

Explaining the strength in his group in his programme notes for tonight's Champions League game with Atalanta, Klopp declared: "As difficult as it has been recently, it does present an amazing opportunity. We saw in the performance against Leicester City just how determined and together we are. I saw a group who is full of courage and full of fight.

"We are going to need all our qualities from now until May. We will need to squeeze from ourselves more than we have ever done previously.

"I have complete faith in our group, from the most experienced player through to our youngest.

"Our performances so far, in the face of adversity, shows me these boys believe in what we do but more importantly they believe in each other.

"They trust each other. They are invested in each other. That can be our 'secret sauce'."
