Sterling 'buzzing' for Liverpool after Champions League comeback

Share

Having absorbed everything Liverpool could throw at them in a titanic title battle, Manchester City will retain their crown with victory at Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday.

Fresh from reaching their second successive Champions League final by beating Barcelona in incredible fashion, the Reds' sights are now set on Wolverhampton Wanderers' visit to Anfield.

Arsenal and Manchester United will qualify for the Europa League, with Wolves in seventh place crossing their fingers, hoping Manchester City win next weekend's FA Cup final to allow them to qualify for Europa. We focus on the game - how we want to play - and not worry too much. That makes our game pretty hard.

Klopp's side rose to the challenge with two second-half goals from substitute Xherdan Shaqiri giving them a comfortable win in the North West derby and moving them a point ahead of City in the table.

"That's why we have to be more precise in all the aspects we are working with these last three years and try to win the game".

The City manager told reporters at his pre-match press conference on Friday: "I don't change my opinion on what we have done (this season) but to get more credit you have to win". The Seagulls showed at Arsenal on Sunday that they will not lie down and, indeed, could have snatched it at the death at the Emirates had they shown more composure in front of goal.

"Sometimes you have that bit of luck, but you've got to keep doing the right things". We have the chance to be champions if we win our game and that's what we have to do.

Liverpool face the prospect of racking up a whopping 97 points and still missing out on top-flight silverware yet Van Dijk is keen to take positives out of his side's remarkable campaign.

It is rare for the title to be won on the final day, even rarer to do it in the final minute of stoppage time in the final game.

"This is just the start for all of us".

Juergen Klopp's Liverpool finished 25 points behind City a year ago, but rose to the challenge and have bridged that gap playing football that at times has surpassed even the dazzling standards of Guardiola's side. So they will go out against Wolves with the attitude that they will do their own bit and then see what happens in the other game. "The fact is we have done incredibly well all season in all competitions and now have two games - two finals - for two titles".
