Just when you thought Jurgen Klopp couldn't endear himself to Liverpool supporters anymore.

A day after dumping Manchester United out of Europe, here is Klopp giving his press conference today wearing a T-shirt of Liverpool's favourite sons, The Beatles.

In the conference, which took place before Liverpool drew Klopp's former team Borussia Dortmund, the German said he believes his players now feel comfortable with his style of play and that is being reflected in results.

Progress into the quarter-finals of the Europa League at the expense of arch-rivals United after a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford - and 3-1 aggregate win - means they have not lost in 90 minutes since early February.

Included in that sequence is the Capital One Cup final penalty shoot-out defeat to Manchester City and a last-minute FA Cup loss at West Ham but also takes in wins over City and United.

Klopp believes momentum has been generated by a greater understanding of his tactics and not merely an improvement in confidence.

"The problem with confidence is it is like a little flower: if you step on it, it is away in a second - it is much more difficult to let it grow than to let it die," said Klopp.
