"Today he played a very good game and worked very hard without the ball, but I am pleased for the whole performance of the whole team".
"I have not been thinking about things like this, but if Naby is reading this and he wants to come with us to the final, he is invited!" It's football, if you want guarantees then you have to do something very different.
Liverpool are in a curious spot at the moment.
What happened against Chelsea was not a one-off, either. "In my mind he will be in contention for the game against Huddersfield".
It is not just about the top four for them, they have got the Champions League final coming up too.
"The boys showed me that they are really ready to fight and to fight and to fight".
The last Premier League fixture of the season will be exciting with Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea matchups for just two Champions League spots.
"I hate the result".
Speaking after the game, Klopp told the Liverpool Echo: "Now he played twice against former teammates". Liverpool started on the front foot with Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane forcing goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois into smart saves. They have three top strikers. And they've crept up on the top four.
After his excellent showing against Roma in the Champions League, Mane (6.7) was again the star for the Reds on Sunday, with the Senegalese providing the main threat from the left flank.
Liverpool are now playing a risky game in which their future isn't necessarily in their own hands. They, like Liverpool, should be able to achieve that.
"Yes I think it was a dive, wasn't it?" It's normal to be a bit nervous, and today was a must-win game. Fortunately for Klopp, Spurs have also dipped recently. It looked like the team that won the Premier League last season, not the one that has slumped to fifth place this time around.
"There will be space created because Marcelo doesn't have 90 minutes of full concentration in him". "We don't have this situation in our hands, but I have experience about these kind of end of season situations". They will be frustrated to find themselves in this position, though. I was not sure.
