Jurgen Klopp refuses to think about Champions League final


Jürgen Klopp has urged his players to ensure they grasp the opportunity in front of them today and finish the job by beating Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield.

The Reds dropped points in draws with Everton, Stoke City and West Brom to allow Chelsea FC back into the top-four race.

"I'm fine so far with the season - but we have to make the last two steps".

"I think the only difference is that we've embarked on a season where Man City have been that good". Belief has been central to so numerous positive things we have done this season.

And while this is a vital game for Jurgen Klopp's side, who are on a three game winless streak in the league, it is expected the German will rest some players with the Champions League final in mind.

Stevie Nicol and Craig Burley are confident Liverpool will get at least a point versus Brighton to secure Champions League football next season.

"There's not much I can say about what he does "on the pitch" that you guys haven't already seen and written about", Klopp wrote, and had read out by someone attending the ceremony.

Liverpool need a win against Brighton on Sunday to guarantee a top-four finish and Salah, as he has been throughout the campaign, will likely prove crucial to the side's success. "Thank you for the fantastic support this season and I hope that there are at least two more great memories for us to share before it is time for summer".

But the German warned that Brighton, who have only pride to play for after securing their Premier League status, could prove unsafe opponents. We have had many more good games than we played last season, some of them outstandingly good performances.

"Away games at the likes of Liverpool are quite daunting because you know what can happen if you get it wrong, but more so they are also very exciting to be involved in and challenging because we know we will have to be at a good level to get something".

"It's hard with all the challenges he has, I know for the journalists it's important, but last night to go to London for a party it's not good". For them it is a nice time but for us it is time to work.

Chelsea have an FA Cup final date with Manchester United on May 19 but this could be Conte's last league game with the Blues after two stormy seasons marred by his feud with the club over their failure to back his transfer plans. But, I suppose, Jurgen Klopp and the boys will want to go in as underdogs because it takes a little bit of pressure off.
