Klopp Liverpool's dramatic win 'a battle of will' in race to title

Klopp therefore has a hard balancing act deciding whether it is worth emptying the tank of his injury-hit squad once more tomorrow or to save their legs for Wolves' visit to Anfield on the final day of the Premier League season.

Virgil van Dijk had a key involvement in Liverpool's winning goal in the dramatic 3-2 victory over Newcastle United at St James' Park last night.

Salomon Rondon equalized in the 54th for Newcastle, but Liverpool - playing just 72 hours after losing to Barcelona at the Camp Nou Stadium - showed its fighting qualities to eke out a win that keeps the pressure on City.

The Reds season appeared to take another hit when Salah was on the wrong end of a collision as Dubravka charged off his line to punch a delivery in the area clear.

Lovren played a key part in one of the greatest recent European comebacks, the Europa League quarter-final at home to Klopp's former club Borussia Dortmund in 2016. They're still behind us [in the table], apart from Man City.

Tottenham also have a 1-0 Champions League semi-final deficit to overturn against Ajax on Wednesday, but still have work to do to qualify for the competition next season after a sixth straight away league defeat.

While Coventry may have missed out on the play-offs this season, Bayliss has enjoyed another fine campaign - netting three times while featuring regularly.

"We need to move on".

If the Premier League table were just based on results at home, Unai Emery's team, who have struggled on the road, would be third behind Manchester City and Liverpool. We have to be ready to try for 95 minutes or even more. "We have ahead two finals", said Pochettino.

Ayoze Perez's status is in question after suffering an injury last week, though he did bravely score another goal through the pain.

As the title race heats up, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has heaped praise on Liverpool as he conceded that Klopp's side was the best side he has had to face.

The one bright spot for Fulham was Harvey Elliott, who became Premier League's youngest ever player at the age of 16 years and 30 days when he came on after 88 minutes. Ryan Fredericks rounded off the scoring with his first-ever Premier League strike.
