    Jurgen Klopp's team now sits atop the English Premier League with an impressive 25-point lead, and a fantastic 34-game undefeated streak.

    Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has claimed that the team aims to repeat last year's success and get another Champions League title, stating that "an underdog mentality" is giving the Reds a boost ahead of their round of 16 match against Atletico.

    "It's just about establishing yourself. You aren't proven winners until you show you can do it again and again", Gomez said. "We went [to Madrid] last season and beat Spurs in one game. Now it is about maintaining that reputation in the Champions League. People might say, 'Oh yeah, they're performing well', but as a team, we have still got an underdog mentality".
