Jurgen Klopp wants Liverpool players to "be angry" against Hull City

The Reds boss has called on his squad to play with fire in their bellies against the Tigers.

Liverpool boss Klopp has enjoyed an excellent start to the season as the Anfield outfit have picked up 10 points from a tough opening set of fixtures.

Last Friday's 2-1 victory away to Chelsea caused the German boss to explode with delight, while fans were getting excited with title talk.

As suggested by a club legend, it may be a little early for Liverpool to be thinking about a Premier League-winning campaign but if they have any hope of tasting success this season, home ties to sides like Hull must be won.

Klopp has urged his players to be "angry" when the game kicks off at 3pm on Saturday:

The German gaffer believes that his team need to show that they can beat so-called weaker teams who come to Anfield with a gameplan of sitting deep and not allowing Liverpool's fluid attack to find space:

The manager is also pleased to have drawn a home tie in the fourth round of the EFL Cup, after Tuesday's 3-0 victory over Derby, even though they face tough opposition in the form of Tottenham Hotspur:
