Liverpool hero McManaman: Klopp's players can handle title heat

Liverpool hero Steve McManaman is confident Jurgen Klopp's players can handle the title heat.

McManaman knows how Klopp's dressing room feels as he was part of the title-chasing side in the 1996-97 season - although that generation collapsed with seven games to go.

“I think pressure is nonsense to be honest," he said.

“If Liverpool win by five at the weekend then you aren't going to talk about pressure, are you?

“These players have played in World Cups – I know they lost the Champions League final.

“Mo Salah who carries his country on his own shoulders.

“I think you'd probably find more pressure on a Scouser in there because of the history of the club.

“But the front three are from different parts of the world. I don't think there's a huge amount of pressure, I really don't."
