Klopp says he'll help Gerrard take over at Anfield

Klopp says he'll help Gerrard take over at Anfield

J├╝rgen Klopp wants Liverpool fans to head to Anfield on Sunday in vocal mood and confident of beating Middlesbrough to secure a top-four finish - and doesn't want anyone thinking 'what if?' ahead of the game.

Jurgen Klopp is hopeful Roberto Firmino will be fit to feature in Liverpool's final game of the season at home to Middlesbrough.

"It's important of course".

Arsene Wenger's side likely need Liverpool to drop points at Anfield to finish in the top four, though a sizeable defeat for Manchester City at Vicarage Road could provide an opportunity for Arsenal to leapfrog the Citizens.

Yet he will know that if they slip up against already-relegated Boro then they don't deserve to be in the Champions League.

Klopp: "It is clear". We do all our coaching and analysis to set the team to go to Anfield and put in a top-class performance for our away supporters.

West Brom, who are usually sound on defence, found themselves trailing 0-2 just a half-hour into Tuesday's tie at the Etihad, conceding goals to Gabriel Jesus - in the 27th minute - and to Kevin de Bruyne, who scored just two minutes later.

"We need to be strong because around us we'll have a lot of quality and they will be stronger so we will be strong - one hundred per cent", Klopp told Omnisport.

"Development depends on the start".

"We could not decide until now, but he feels good and he feels comfortable", said the manager.

"Everyone can be sure that we will fight for each yard". I don't know how many players I've managed in the last few years, but at one point always you think "it would have been better if he would have broken his leg" or whatever [because] then you know everything about it.

"They want to enjoy their football". That's not the worst circumstances for playing good football. There will doubtless be some rotation from Conte as he looks to ensure of the freshest XI possible to face Arsenal in the FA Cup final, with a double within their grasp. It's not about performing and stuff like this.

We're not looking at what Barcelona do, says Real Madrid's Casemiro
By all the Real Madrid fans, the club, supporters and the coach. "We keep racking up the points and we're happy". "And yet I've never had the fortune to actually work with him".

"We are used to it and we have to play football".

Liverpool's Champions League qualification hangs on this game.

"It is a wonderful competition. But we learned a lot and we will bring in quality now".

Jamie Carragher has described Liverpool's last game of the season as a genuine "final" and fears that they may not have a better opportunity to reach the Champions League.

"It's one part of it but we are already in a good position".
