Tottenham manager Pochettino: Liverpool unaffected by Premier League blow

Tottenham manager Pochettino: Liverpool unaffected by Premier League blow

By that point, though, it was irrelevant as City readied their title party in Brighton.

"We should get an award for the biggest development jump I can remember", Klopp said after a final day win against Wolves.

Nuno Espirito Santo's Wolves have an excellent record against top-six opposition this season, and they'll be aiming to spoil the party at Anfield. If we can win it, it´s not in our hands what we get, but it doesn´t make our season a little bit less good. I can read all the stats, I can read all the numbers, it's just really exceptional. Now, we want to go again. That is what we feel.

"I'm not anxious", he said.

"As long as City are around with the quality that they have and the financial power and all that stuff, it's not that any other team will pass them easily". You need to be very, very close to perfection to win the Premier League as long as this is the case. We will come again, 100 per cent. We made such big steps. "That is the plan".

"It's not a ideal day for us but the future will show whether it's a very good one anyway".

Klopp will have to re-focus his players´ minds after their heroics against Barcelona as they cling to the hope that City will slip up against Brighton. Then it calmed down.

"The atmosphere was not that ecstatic after something happened at Brighton which we didn't like".

Speaking about her baby son, Meghan said: "He has the sweetest temperament and he's really calm and been the dream". The world got to see the royal baby for the first time today and also learn his name, all in the span of a day.

"Very hard circumstances but we won 2-0 against a very strong Wolves side".

Mane wrapped up the victory with his second goal after 81 minutes.

Liverpool have not won the title in the Premier League era and Klopp has rallied his troops for one final challenge, in what has been a thrilling race with City to top the table.

City can not quite match the record 100 points they mustered last season but they have shown their ability to dig deep in recent weeks. We gave everything over the whole season, City are a fantastic side and you take your hats off to them. We accept that, no problem.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo, whose post-match press conference began with just one reporter seated as Liverpool held their lap of honour, paid tribute to the Reds and City.

As 71 minutes ticked by, Jota's point blank header was saved by Alisson and City made it 4-1 on the south coast through Ilkay Gundogan - virtually assuring themselves of the title. "The jobs of both managers and both clubs was unbelievable".

Late in the game, despite the title heading to Manchester, Alexander-Arnold produced a wonderful cross from deep which Mane headed in. The belief of the boys is what makes this possible.

"What we did before, let's enjoy and appreciate it".
