After beating Wolves on Wednesday, the path to Champions League qualification has become clearer.
Liverpool now sit sixth, with a game in hand on Tottenham in fourth.
Since defeat to Wolves at the start of February, Klopps team have kept four domestic clean sheets in a row and a victory against Man United, this weekend, would signal that Liverpool really are beginning to find their feet at last.
When asked whether three points against Ten Hags side would send out a message, Klopp said: They realise already we are not completely gone, its not that we are in no mans land.
The manager also spoke about the challenge ahead of them to finish in the top four.
We just have to take it game by game and go for it, Klopp added. Go full throttle for it, go really into the game and try to win it somehow.
Liverpool werent at their very best against Wolves but Klopp has taken positives from recent performances.
He said: A lot of good things happened over the last few weeks even though, because of the Madrid game, it doesnt feel like that, but so far it goes in the right direction.
We have to make further steps.
What that means for the other teams, I dont know, Im not there. But, they know we are still around and thats better than if they couldnt see us anymore.
The run of four consecutive league clean sheets is Liverpools longest since last April.
