Liverpool set sights on top-four finish

Posted May 14, 2018

"Don't forget two years ago, Chelsea ended the season 10th and not in the FA Cup final, not in the semi-finals of the League Cup, and they were eliminated in the last 16 against PSG in the Champions League".

Salah, who is also the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year, has not managed to add to his 43 goals this season in the last three matches and looked exhausted in Liverpool's defeat at Chelsea on Sunday.

Now placed fourth in the EPL standings, a draw against minnows Brighton on Sunday will assure Liverpool a spot in next season's Champions League.

Asked if Mane was available for selection on Sunday, Klopp said: "We will see". It's the last time we'll hear the voice of Ron Jones in the commentary box on Today FM as he retires after tomorrow's game. Everyone can imagine the boys need a bit of rest.

Speaking at his postmatch news conference, Klopp said: "Perfect final [day] of the season, of a very exciting season, a very intense season".

Over at Anfield, Liverpool's Egyptian superstar, Mohamed Salah ended his season at Liverpool with two Guinness World Records titles of his own: Most goals by a football (soccer) player in an English Premier League season (38 games) and Most English Premier League football (soccer) matches scored in by an individual during a season (38 game)*.

"He was fantastic", Klopp added.

Do you think Mohamed Salah can achieve great things at Liverpool? However, at the same time, his focus remained on the upcoming Premier League game with Brighton. "Now, we will be ready and this qualification gives us a big boost".

I think the game will finish Liverpool 4-1 Brighton with Salah getting one goal - minimum.

However, Liverpool haven't lost at Anfield in the league this season and I'd be mortified if Brighton are the team to be the first to leave with all three points - with all due respect, we've faced a plethora of more hard teams this season.

Brighton had already secured their survival by beating Manchester United last weekend.

Klopp will be encouraged by the fact Liverpool hold the last remaining unbeaten home record in the Premier League, with their last home defeat coming in April a year ago.

"As long as we are not 100 percent in the Champions League, this last game is the most important of the season", he said.
