Liverpool No2 Lijnders says players fully focused for Preston

Pep Lijnders insists Liverpool will have no problem refocusing after their 5-0 win over Manchester United.

The Reds are now looking forward to Wednesday's Carabao Cup clash with Championship side Preston North End.

Speaking before the clash, Reds assistant Lijnders said: “We are trained to do this, we are used to doing this, to play every three or four days.

“How I said, if you want to achieve big things you have to focus on the small things. The small things mean we have to do the session after the game right, we have to do the recovery process right for the players who played, we have to prepare the team and the players who are going to play against Preston with big respect.

“And what I like about us is that we don't prepare differently if we go away to Preston or we go away to Man United and you see that in the mentality of our players and you see that in the hunger in the sessions.

“As long as that's the case, if the day before the game the session is so intense and so quick and so difficult for the starters, we are really confident to attack the next game and that's what we want: going game by game, going session by session, going recovery by recovery, focusing on the small things, doing things right, being ready and show our fans away at Preston our hunger, our desire and our way. That's the only way to become consistent in the season."
