Jurgen Klopp has challenged his Liverpool players "to be angry" when Hull City visit Anfield in the Premier League this weekend.

The Reds have recovered from a disappointing defeat at Burnley in August to win two games and draw one [away at White Hart Lane], lifting them to 6th in the table.

While Liverpool's performances against stiff opposition have tended to be positive under Klopp, there remains a question mark against them when teams with less quality sit back and frustrate them.

Klopp believes the key to his team dealing with this challenge successfully lies with the preparation and mentality of the players.

He said:

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. I don’t know why people think we have problems with this? I didn’t see too much space against Chelsea.

It will be difficult, but if we accept before that it is difficult then we can perform and that is what we should do. We have to go to Anfield on Saturday afternoon in the most positive mood we have ever been in. I know we will be ready.
