Liverpool star Georginio Wijnaldum says he was always certain of this thing

Liverpool star Georginio Wijnaldum has said that his team-mates always knew that the goals would eventually start flowing again after they recorded a 7-0 demolition of Maribor in a Champions League encounter on Tuesday.

Prior to the game the Reds had endured frustration as they had only won one out of their previous eight games in all competitions.

The win is a much needed confidence boost for Jurgen Klopp’s side and they will hope that the confidence can help them ahead of their Premier League encounter against Tottenham at Wembley Stadium during the weekend.

Wijnaldum has however revealed that he always knew that his team would start scoring again, saying, “Not with me. We were a little bit sad that we didn’t score a lot of goals (in recent matches) as we created a lot of chances.

“The manager told us if we play like that, creating a lot of chances and (are) maybe more ruthless in the chances we get, then we would score goals. We just kept the belief and played how we always believed – just being more ruthless.”

The Reds will go into the game against Tottenham as underdogs considering that Spurs have a superior recent record.
