Liverpool front man ruled out of final league game with Brighton

The Reds lost 3-1 to La Liga giants Sevilla in the Europa League final in 2015 in Klopp's first full season in charge.

Klopp will be encouraged by the fact Liverpool hold the last remaining unbeaten home record in the Premier League, with their last home defeat coming in April past year. Liverpool's main aim at the start of the season was to secure back-to-back Champions League qualifications for the first time in a decade and Klopp has banned all talk of the final against Real Madrid to ensure the most important job is completed first.

"We need to be completely focused on the game".

With 31 goals and nine assists in the Premier League, the PFA Player of the Year has accrued a sensational 292 points in FPL this year and is just four short of beating the record Luis Suarez set (295) in 2013/14 when the Uruguayan was on fire for Liverpool.

"On Sunday, we have to deliver again - all of us". A lot of things can happen in football. "To be remembered in 500 years then we have to win the other game for sure". Having no pressure can be quite positive actually, that's how it is and the situation we face.

'That's what we [have] said before, nothing is decided, it's open. Liverpool have been in top-four for the majority of the season.

Swansea have what looks like a highly winnable game at home to relegated Stoke City.

Until that moment Klopp is focusing totally on the Premier League's conclusion. "We are breathing badly, but we are still alive", Carvalhal said.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will manage the Gunners for the last time on Sunday at Huddersfield's John Smiths Stadium.

Should they beat Liverpool in this year's final, they will retain the Champions League for a third year in row, bringing their total European titles to 13 and their Champions League title haul to seven, further cementing their place as European football's best side.

"I would prefer Mo went to bed early and watched a movie", Klopp said at a press conference on Friday. "Not the most glamorous maybe, but the most hard".

A draw with Brighton would see them finish fourth, but a loss could drop them down to fifth if Chelsea win their final game at Newcastle.

City broke the Premier League points record by reaching 97 with their win against Brighton in midweek and shattered the record for goals scored in a season as they hit 105.
