Jurgen Klopp demands a strong reaction to Liverpool’s 3-1 defeat against Leicester when they host Arsenal at home on Saturday night.
The Reds have managed to win only one of their last seven league matches and are trailing top spot holders Chelsea by 14 points.
In spite of having a flying start to the season, Klopp now faces to struggle to confirm a top four finish.
Klopp told BBC One: ‘Qualifying for the Champions League would be a big success, 100 per cent. Qualifying for the Europa League, I’m not sure I could sell it as a success, but it would be OK, and a step in the right direction.
‘But it is too early to say what would be a success, because we have to learn from the last games very, very quickly.’
‘First of all we have to make sure we are really good against Arsenal again, because if we want to stay in their reach in the table we need to bounce back. That’s how it is.
‘We have no alternative, we have to deliver and show a reaction.’
