Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes his team can put their 3-0 Champions League defeat to Barcelona out of mind and focus on winning Saturday's crucial Premier League trip to Newcastle.
Liverpool trail leaders Manchester City by a point heading into the final two games of the Premier League season and the German said there was no need for him to boost his players' morale after the loss in Spain, in the semi-final, first leg.
'We didn't need to pick players up in Barcelona and give them a hug. It's in us. If you want to win in football you have to accept that you can lose,' said Klopp.
