Jürgen Klopp voices disapproval over Mohamed Salah's dive against Chelsea

Given their exploits in reaching the Champions League final in Wednesday's semi-final second leg with Roma, Liverpool's failure to produce an intense start was unsurprising. The next game will definitely be a tough game but I'm confident we can manage to win it.

"One month ago it was impossible to imagine we'd arrive at the end to fight for a place in the Champions League", he said.

"We are getting three points every game".

Giroud has scored four goals in his last five appearances, including the victor against Liverpool on Sunday, while Morata missed the game through injury. Our opponents are dropping points, but our vision is not in our hands.

It was nearly as if they had looked at the records books about who had scored what in the Champions League and were thinking "I want to be the man who scores the most".

"We're putting pressure on the teams that stay ahead of us".

Although Chelsea have a game in hand, Liverpool's superior goal difference nearly certainly means victory against Brighton and Hove Albion will secure a top-four finish. "Brighton showed in their previous game against Manchester United that they can win against big teams, but I'm confident we can do it".

He once played with a broken jaw, after having to sneak rolls of coins into his trousers to make weight for the game. I think that you could chase that thing forever and it might be the next year, but it might be 10 years away.

"It's intense for all of us and that's why I'm absolutely OK. The situation is very intense for the boys and I am really happy and proud of them how they deal with it".

Liverpool's 43-goal forward is still chasing the 38-game, single season Premier League record of 32 goals - he has 31 - and had a frustrating afternoon against his former club. I'm not sure. That's not what I want to see, that's not what he wants to do.

"He (Salah) can do much better".

The German added: "He has to be much better, he can do much better and he will score again, there is no doubt about that".

Mohamed Salah of Liverpool recieves a yellow card from match referee Anthony Taylor.

The Italian said: "They are very unsafe, these three strikers". Despite this, they are in the Champions League final and still third in the Premier League, but former Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas feels they are risking playing themselves into bad form.
