​Klopp wants Liverpool to start competing against the smaller teams

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says his side need to shake off the perception that they're unable to break down the Premier League's smaller sides.

Klopp's side slipped to a disappointing 2-0 loss at newly-promoted Burnley earlier in the campaign and the German manager is hoping to avoid a repeat performance at Anfield on Saturday.

"Yes we need to be angry against Hull. They want our points. We have to think about why people think we have problems against bus parking," he said.

"I would love to see everybody go with the right expectations to these games. Why should it be easier?

"Why should a team who people think is weaker than us not have the opportunity to win? I can guarantee it's not about the attitude of the players.

"Hull are ready for the Premier League. They have a very experienced coach and a squad with a great attitude."
