Man City Wouldn't Have Got To 98 Points Without Us - Jurgen Klopp

Man City Wouldn't Have Got To 98 Points Without Us - Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool fell just short of winning their first ever Premier League title on Sunday, as Brighton could not be relied upon to take points off eventual champions Manchester City.

The Reds' haul would have been enough to win 116 of the previous 119 titles and Klopp thinks Manchester City only reached 98 points because his side were nipping at their heels.

"There's a lot to come, a lot of years; it's all about you and what you do with it, and that's what we do with it. People will tell us it's 30 years [since Liverpool won the league] but they have bigger problems, to be honest".

"It's not easy but we've made a big step".

"I say congratulations to Manchester City and we will fight again next season for this trophy", he added.

"If we're ready to make the next step we'll make that next step. We will go again", Klopp said.

"It's a combination - the players, the staff, we have such a desire to overachieve and because we have such a good team overachieving is hard".

Lena Headley had 'mixed' feeling over Cersei Lannister's big moment — SPOILER ALERT
Given Cersei's long list of murderous sins, the character by all rights should be considered GoT's outright villain. Yes, Jaime and Cersei die together in the most handsome way, because together in the womb and together in the tomb.

"There's a lot of factors to it, the supporters, the way they make this stadium is incredible", he said.

"We need to be very, very close to perfection to win the Premier League". From what I saw in the training sessions, they want to win it, knowing that we can lose it. "We will go again but give me a few hours to get over that".

"It's a very special season, a better season than I played with my team (Borussia Dortmund) when we were champions in Germany". We were always competitive. "Today feels not so good but we have plenty of time to prepare for an important game in three weeks".

"(Barcelona) was for sure one of the best moments in football history, not only Liverpool. We were really good until 1-0, what happened then was clear.

Virgil van Dijk rattled the crossbar late on as Liverpool completed a remarkable season with a flourish.

There was hope among the home fans when news of City conceding early arrived shortly after Mane had put the Reds in front, but the moment the champions moved ahead before the break, Liverpool looked resigned to their disappointment. Our target during the week was to get 97 points, we got that - that's special. "So we are going to go out there at Brighton to try to win the game".

"We saw in the Champions League in the last week why this game is fantastic". The 1-0 of Brighton was hard to deal with, but when it calmed down it was clear they [Man City] are one, two or three goals up or whatever.
