Realizing the immense importance of the upcoming matches, Klopp acknowledged that they will face tough opponents such as Manchester United, Arsenal, and Newcastle. The atmosphere at Anfield is expected to be electric, especially with the anticipation of more seats opening up soon. The additional seats being added to Anfield could prove to be beneficial for Liverpool. With an increased crowd capacity, the team may receive heightened support, potentially impacting their performance positively.
Liverpool have had a commendable start to the season. However, Klopp and his team understand the significance of maintaining their momentum throughout December to prove their resilience as a strong team.
