Jurgen Klopp keeps focus on Brighton amid Real Madrid talk

Jurgen Klopp keeps focus on Brighton amid Real Madrid talk

"It's a big one, there were plenty of moments to be proud of being a supporter of the club and on Sunday we have to deliver again, all of us", Klopp added.

Salah, who is the first African to be named the Premier League Player of the Season, credited the influence of Jurgen Klopp on his career both on and off the field.

"I think the only difference is that we've embarked on a season where Man City have been that good".

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 previous year. "It will be a hard day for us and we'll have to defend very well as a team", said Hughton.

Lallana's return could not be better timed with the Champions League final against Real Madrid little more than two weeks away and Gareth Southgate naming his squad for the World Cup in Russian Federation on May 16.

Speaking on Friday, he said: "I would say so". The basis is obviously good because if we win against Brighton we are in the Champions League.

Liverpool need to beat Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield on Sunday to guarantee Champions League qualification for next season, although a draw would also nearly certainly keep the Reds above Chelsea.

They will have to field their strongest XI and will also have to hope that none of their first team stars pick up any injuries that might affect their chances in the UCL final later this month.

"We need to be completely focused on the game".

Huddersfield's battling draw at Stamford Bridge in midweek has aided Liverpool's quest to secure a top-four position, but there is still work to be done this weekend against Brighton. 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. Emre Can also appear to be losing his battle to be fit for the Champions League final, but Adam Lallana looks set to at least take a place on the bench for the final two matches of the campaign.

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League last term to secure a return to the Champions League after a two-season absence. But I say "no excuse" because this intensity is what we want. 'If we don't do it and Chelsea get the spot then they deserve it. I really think they deserve it but we have to make the final step ourselves'.
