Jürgen Klopp: Liverpool need ideal finish

Liverpool's Henderson could only watch on as Chelsea ruined their title dreams

Liverpool's Henderson could only watch on as Chelsea ruined their title dreams

The Red Devils are in fifth place in the Premier League table and three points adrift of Tottenham, who occupy third position with five games to go.

Liverpool notably stepped up their game after the interval and Klopp pointed out what he changed to get the best out of his players.

"After the second goal - a shocking goal in a good way for them, but not for us - we reacted".

Mane broke the deadlock with a 51st-minute header before Salah doubled the lead with a stunning long-range strike two minutes later. It was a really, really outstanding finish.

"The performance was really good but to really make it happen you need the goals and we got them, all good".

Klopp insisted his side were only focused on the job ahead of them and were not looking back.

"For a month in the Premier League, we knew it would be nearly impossible - possible, but very hard - if we dropped points". We play our game.

"Good, let's try. Let's try that". If not, we can not change it. We didn't lose it here or there.

"Very smart people will come out and say "Yeah, if you would have won against Leicester you would be champions". Only weak people and idiots bring something like this up".

So much of the pre-match build-up revolved around the Reds' defeat to Chelsea in 2014, in which Steven Gerrard's slip proved so costly in the title race.

"I was lucky the ball hit the net like that".

Sarri said: "Liverpool are one of the best teams in Europe at this moment".

"We stayed in the match for 50 minutes. Two or three months ago we would not have done".

Hazard beat Alisson Becker in a one-on-one only for his shot to rebound off the post before firing a first-time, close-range shot straight at the goalkeeper when he seemed certain to score, with Higuain also missing a chance soon after. "I was really happy".
