Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said an unlikely last day Premier League title win would be cool.

The coach said the only thing his players or he could do was to focus on Liverpool’s final game of the season at Anfield against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The boss was asked if some more of the drama seen in the Champions League in midweek could be in store on Sunday.

“It would be cool,” he replied, at his pre-match press conference.

“It was a week of, I’m not sure miracles, but of big football moments. From our point of view, there could be a big football moment for us as well on the weekend. It would be nice. The week is not over yet, Sunday counts to this week not for next week. So, of course we go for that.

“But nothing changed really, we knew it before. I think most of the people expected me to sit here today and say, OK, after not being in the Champions League final it’s pretty difficult to become champions. Now we are in the Champions League final it’s still difficult to become champions. But the only thing we can do is to win the game.

“In this situation obviously it looks like Wolves and Brighton, they are there, City will win and we will win and at the end City are champions. But there’s a game to play.

“Wolves have ambitions, they showed the whole year real ambition, they enjoyed their football, they are seventh in an unbelievably competitive league from getting promoted last year,” Klopp went on

They played wonderful football in a lot of moments, they are difficult to play, good defending, sensational counter-attacking, scoring in the right moments, staying calm and composed in important moments of a game. Nuno is doing an incredible job there. That makes our game pretty difficult.

“And on the other hand, Brighton, it’s their last home game in the Premier League season. They know they will have another one next year for sure. How I know this team, they are full of joy for football, so they will try everything as well.

“So, both teams have to win their games, that’s what I want to say. That’s not sure in the moment, so we have to focus on that.”

Klopp said it would be natural for fans to be preoccupied with the Manchester City game against Brighton but hoped that his players remained focused on putting Wolves away.

“That’s completely normal,” said Klopp.

“Maybe a little advice, maybe our supporters shouldn’t celebrate the result at Brighton before it’s 3-0 for Brighton and 87 or 88 minutes played – all the rest is only information, nothing else.

“Our people are so smart, they did so well over the year. That’s life, we will not say it’s not allowed or whatever. We are human beings, so react to whatever you want but the best thing would be to be really in our game because that’s the only game we have real influence on.”
