Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has urged his players to “keep the pressure” on Newcastle United and Manchester United after Monday night’s win at Leicester City.
Recall that the Reds defeated Leicester City 3-0 on Monday to move one point of their top-four rivals.
Liverpool’s late-season resurgence has seen them surge up the table but they will need a helping hand from the two clubs above them if they are to steal a place in next season’s Champions League.

Newcastle and United are level on 66 points with three games left to play, while Liverpool are on 65 but only have two matches remaining.
However, Klopp has urged his players tp keep the momentum and leapfrog the two teams above them.
“Six, seven weeks ago, I didn’t believe it can happen,” Klopp said of Liverpool’s top-four chances. “What we lacked that time was obviously consistency and there was only one chance for us to get in these situations – winning pretty much all the football games, and that’s what we had to do, it’s crazy. But that’s the situation we were in. That’s good.
“All the rest is not in our own hands but we know we have to win all the games until the end of the season to have a chance. I said it now a couple of times, yes probably Newcastle and United are not watching us, are confident – that’s all fine.
“But we were in similar situations and you wish anyway that the opponent was just losing and you have that kind of pressure off your shoulder. Our job is to keep the pressure. But again, it’s not likely. But if not, then this is already better than we could have expected six, seven weeks ago.
