With last night's victory over Leicester City, Liverpool confirmed that they are not giving up the fight for the top 4. There are still two games left for them and three for their main rivals. Every match could decide, given that the difference is 1 point between Liverpool and the main competitors (Liverpool has a game more).
Garry Neville, a former Manchester United player, emphasized that Newcastle United and Manchester must be careful until the very end. He is convinced that Liverpool will win the remaining two games and that Newcastle and Manchester must not make a mistake.
‘They’ve got a job to do. Liverpool, with Jurgen Klopp’s little fist pump at the end is definitely something that if you’re a Newcastle player or Manchester United player you recognise that he’s coming for you and I think he’s sending them a message,’- Neville said on Sky Sports, as quoted by METRO.
‘They’re going to have to make sure that they do it properly because Liverpool will win their two games. I think Manchester United and Newcastle need to forget the idea that Liverpool might drop points, they’ve got to do their job or else they won’t be part of the top four.’
Jurgen Klopp on his team
Jurgen Klopp was also satisfied with the performance of his team, who took advantage of their chances.
“[We] needed around about 15 minutes to figure out how we can build up, and how we can control. We were flexible enough, got everybody on the ball facing the other goal, good passing through the lines, and mixed it up as the first goal showed.
Sensational first goal, top second goal - the passing again.
We should have scored immediately after the third one. Between 55 and 57 [minutes] it was a bit too open for me, we didn’t control too much. They wanted to put a proper fight in, we avoided it most of the time."
