Jurgen Klopp is monitoring “the best Liverpool team that has been”, according to club legend Steven Gerrard.
Liverpool remain in the hunt for an unprecedented quadruple this season, though a 1-1 draw against Tottenham at the weekend caused them to slip three points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City.
Despite the Reds winning the European Cup and Champions League six times in their history, Gerrard believes the current harvest is the best they have ever had.
“Because of the way the game has changed – it’s gone faster, it’s gone faster – I think you’re probably seeing the best Liverpool team there has ever been. It’s because of the speed, mentality and intensity of this current group. , ”Said Gerrard.
“But I say this without respecting previous Liverpool teams because I grew up watching them. The Europa Cup winners, league title winners – I grew up with all that. I’m well aware that they’ve had it before. world-class players, leaders and teams. ”
Liverpool get the chance to win the Champions League again when they host Real Madrid in the final in Paris on 28 May.
But Gerrard’s Aston Villa will be hoping to put another notch in Liverpool’s high ambitions for the promotion when they meet in the Premier League on Tuesday.

Villa won the corresponding match last season 7-2, but they have not won consecutive home league matches against the Reds since February 1998.
“We have to make sure we are brave enough and show enough quality to hurt Liverpool,” he said.
“I’m never going to set a team up to just suffer for 90 minutes, but I do not want it to be bad or careless. It has to be calculated.
“Sometimes we have to suffer, but if we do it together and get through those situations, we think that with the form we are in, we will have some interesting moments in the game.
“That was what Tottenham did. They were organized, they were patient and when their moments came, they caused Liverpool some problems.”
