Jurgen Klopp has called on his Liverpool players to fight with fatigue and continue their winning run against Wolves.
The Reds have now won each of their last nine fixtures in the top flight, and are still without defeat this season.
And Klopp has warned his players that they should not use their hectic fixture schedule as an excuse as they prepare to face Wolves.
"This group of players know they set their own agenda and their own benchmarks," he wrote in his programme notes.
"They know they have the capacity to decide if going into a game we allow ourselves to feel fatigue or we choose to be fresh in body and mind. It’s a choice we can make – we have the power to decide our own approach.
"I’m not stupid and we know what faces us in this particular period is a big, big test. But this is the Premier League and our ambition is to be the most successful team in it and that means rising to meet every challenge.
"Talking about a particular subject is completely different to using it as an excuse. These players have a 'no excuse culture’ running through them.
"We will have setbacks, we will lose games, of course we will. But we will never look to external factors to explain it, no matter how legitimate they may appear.
"Our approach must always be about opportunity. To win the FIFA World Club Cup for the first time in our history was an opportunity and we took it.
"To come back to the fierce intensity of competition in the Premier League on the back of that – to this schedule – is an opportunity for us to perform if we choose to approach it as such, and we will.
"That is what I have seen from the players since we came back together in July and August. We set our agenda. We decide what is possible.
"It is in our gift to view the ‘pressure’ we are supposedly all under as a positive not a negative. The right sort of pressure, which is linked to achieving something special, is a motivator and not a backpack to carry."
