Klopp keeps focus on Brighton

While the Seagulls have little to play for this weekend, the hosts require a point to guarantee a top-four finish ahead of Chelsea.

However, Liverpool manager Klopp knows his team have the chance to etch their names in history against Madrid in a fortnight.

The day English football fans have dreaded, the final games of the season, take place on Sunday. "But we have to try to get three points against Newcastle, then to drop something positive for us", Conte said.

"Belief and confidence are completely different to arrogance and complacency". For them it is a nice time but for us it is time to work. We have been pushed to the limit in recent weeks with the intensity of what we have been doing.

The pressure is marginally reduced compared to when Middlesbrough arrived at Anfield last May - Liverpool only need to avoid defeat against Brighton to deny Chelsea the final qualification place. They allowed Coutinho to go and generally nobody talks about him so I think that shows how far they've come. It's intense because it matters.

"I am very happy, I am very proud to win it", Salah said. "It is just the beginning", he added. Today is about opportunity.

The Mets batted out of order Wednesday, a weird occurrence better suited for a beer softball league than the major leagues. LF Yoenis Cespedes was out of the starting lineup for a day to rest his sore right thigh.

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.

"Like any cup final, it will not be given or presented to us".

The composure that has characterised City's record-breaking Premier League season ebbed away as misplaced passed were gobbled up by wave upon wave of Liverpool attack. "I made them wrong". It's nearly easy to forget now that we started this campaign by going to Hoffenheim, so our journey has been incredibly intense from moment one.

"It's not a farewell thing on Sunday it's a proper competition against a strong football team". One might struggle to understand how he's been able to fit so many big guns in, but maybe he's brought some low-priced players in as well.

"It is not just about the top four for them, they have got the Champions League final coming up too".

"All the awards around are really deserved but hopefully the last one was yesterday and now it is about playing the game on Sunday".
