Jurgen Klopp: 'Liverpool up for top-four fight'


As Chelsea and Liverpool both battled for a spot in next season's Champions League, there was no better person to introduce Sunday's bout between the two sides.

Salah was booked for diving shortly before half-time, clearly going down on the canvas deliberately, showing that no-one is entirely free from the clutches of deception.

Chelsea slowly grew into the game but Liverpool maintained a threat on the break with Sadio Mane particularly lively coming in from the left. Liverpool's Egyptian forward will be particularly desperate for three points this time out, having been sold by Chelsea earlier in his career without ever being given much of a chance in the first team.

"We smashed records previous year, up until now with Manchester City breaking them, I captained the team, won the title again for the second time, got to an FA Cup final, and you are still hearing you are in trouble". We can not play players who are not available.

Rescue operations have entered their second day at Sibanye-Stillwater's Driefontein mine in Carletonville‚ near Johannesburg. Government is sacrificing workers because it is afraid of the mining companies. "We pulled them out for safety".

"We have to win these two games, especially when you play at home". Sky Sport subscribers can also stream the game online via SkyGo or using the SkyGo app. Fans can also watch the match using a dodgy stream online but we can't condone that sort of thing! However, Wednesday's match will have taken a lot out of the Merseysiders and I think that could prove crucial in this game. I was not sure.

"Liverpool are a good team".

"If you want guarantees then you have to do something very different". We have fought hard for our position in the league. "The situation is very intense for the boys and I am really happy and proud of them how they deal with it".

"It's completely normal for attacking players to be like this", Klopp told BBC Sport after a result that leaves his side just three points clear of the fifth-place Blues. That's not a problem - he can deal with that and deals with that. I'm hearing "Cahill might be fighting for his place", yet we smashed records a year ago. We need to be ready for the game.
