"It wouldn't be obvious but it would be something about us a lot of the time - what we were good at, why we're here.

"I think Jurgen Klopp it's important he actually tries to take the focus off of the history," Ferdinand said.

"If Liverpool go out and put in a massive performance against one of the big teams, they put them to sleep and win three or four-nil, then you get the momentum again."
