Boss confident of top 4 finish
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is confident that Liverpool can handle the pressure ahead of their final fixture of the season at home to Middlesbrough on Sunday.
The Reds are just one win away from a top 4 finish, and securing Champions League football for themselves next season. Their win away at West Ham yesterday was a big one, and you can read 5 things we learned from the game here.
It meant that despite Arsenal putting the pressure on them by winning 4-1 away at Stoke, Champions League qualification is still in Liverpool’s own hands.
“We have one more game and we will stay focused, 100 per cent,” said Klopp. “We know the situation and no one will underestimate the next game. That’s how it is, part of this life is to handle pressure. I thought we did really well.
“But these players did and that’s why we are in the position we are – 73 points is not a present, we have had to work for it.”
Klopp knows how important the Champion League is in terms of their hopes of signing quality players next season, and you can read his thoughts on that matter here.
