Liverpool must be 'close to perfection' next season says Klopp

13 May 2019

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool will not be deterred by this season's Premier League disappointment.

"This season has been a year full of wonderful moments, wonderful moments altogether".

'We have another game to go in three weeks so it is another big one to look forward to'.

Liverpool still have the chance to end the season with silverware as they are due to lock horns with Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final at the start of next month.

"If people judge me on not winning something in the past or winning something in the future, I can not change that".

On the other hand, Liverpool have drawn just four and won the rest 10 and the least they can do is to hope for City's opponents to nick away a point on Sunday to end their title drought. If that leads to silverware then wonderful, but we can not do more.

Right before the second leg, it really hurt to hope for anything more than people believed, I still wanted to see the match, because your team doesn't get to play Barcelona and Lionel Messi every other day so why not be a good sport.

"If that doesn't happen after this season, then I lose a little bit of respect for people, to be honest", he said.

So, given Klopp's side wiped the floor with Barcelona in the Champions League this week, with both Keita and Coutinho playing, it was inevitable there'd be a few claims to cause irritation at Liverpool.

Prior to that, however, their focus will lie on the final gameweek of the Premier League season where they require Manchester City to drop points at Brighton in order to hold any chance of securing the English crown.

In this article, we shall look at Liverpool's team news, injury news, and predicted lineup.

Roberto Firmino is expected to sit out for another week, but the Brazilian will make his comeback in the Champions League finals.

"Very important for all the young lads to learn, I've said that already to the boys".

And despite the promise of Champions League glory Alexander-Arnold insists missing out on the Premier League will be devastating.

Klopp also took a swipe at Uefa over their staging of the Europa League final in Azerbaijan.

Divock Origi, who joined before Klopp, had played only 577 minutes this season until he delivered last week's victor at Newcastle and the decisive brace against Barcelona.
