Adjust Comment Print

Liverpool FC are now in second place in the table and just a point behind Manchester City as they look to try and capitalise on any slip-ups from Pep Guardiola's side, who travel to Brighton on the final day.

"Liverpool was exceptional, I don't mean to rub it in, it is what it is, they didn't deserve to lose", City captain Vincent Kompany said.

"As long as City are around, with the quality they have, the power, the financial power and that stuff, then it's not any other team that will pass them easily", Klopp said.

Liverpool beat Wolves 2-0 at Anfield on Sunday (May 12) thanks to two goals from Sadio Mane but City came from behind to win 4-1 at Brighton to keep their noses in front.

Jurgen Klopp conceded Liverpool could not have done any more in their pursuit of the Premier League title.

Coady has been involved in every second of the club's 46 game campaign, including FA Cup and EFL games, leading his team to seventh place in the Premier League, their best finish for 39 years.

Jurgen Klopp admits it will be hard to stop Manchester City dominating the Premier League but insists his Liverpool team are one of the best in history and very much up for the fight.

Klopp´s men, with 94 points, have recovered from a mid-season stumble to record eight straight victories.

Liverpool still managed to do their job at home to Wolves, however, finishing on 97 points-the most in a season in the club's great history.

Abu Dhabi-owned City look nearly certain to finish off the job and Guardiola said he has so much faith in his players that a pre-match team-talk will not be necessary.

However, as analysts noted, United States allies and other U.S. officials including Pompeo and Chief of Naval Operations Navy Adm. Iran's Supreme National Security Council labelled the USA troops deployed in the Middle East to be a terror group.

Klopp said: "Congratulations to Manchester City".

"But I am not anxious that this is as good as it can be".

The Reds were top of the "as it stands" Premier League table, now used widely in this age of instant information, and there was joy unconfined through this iconic stadium. "It's nice but not how we wanted it", he continued. "So we are going to go out there at Brighton to try to win the game".

Not only them because I have to say, a lot of people say about the Liverpool supporters that they are so desperate about winning the league and stuff like that, but how they followed this path, how they followed this way, is just incredible. This team is one of the best to have ever played for Liverpool, 100 per cent.

Since scoring, the Reds looked nervous and those nerves were felt in the crowd as news came through of Aymeric Laporte's goal to put Man City 2-1 up.
