Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool title bid was only first step

But not before he plays in the Champions League final for a second year running, as Liverpool take on Premier League rivals Tottenham at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid on 1 June.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo, whose post-match press conference began with just one reporter seated as Liverpool held their lap of honour, paid tribute to the Reds and City. We all know how privileged we are to do what we do and we know the rewards are totally out of proportion with what other people in society get for doing jobs that are far more important than ours. "I couldn't be more proud of the boys", stated Klopp.

"The team made so many big steps in the previous year".

After pulling off one of the greatest comebacks in European football, Jurgen Klopp and his team must now focus on beating Wolverhampton Wanderers and hoping that an out-of-form Brighton can do them a favour against Manchester City. "Same today please. Let's make today about us, as Liverpool, finding the joy that comes from the moment". But we play in the league with other very good teams and we have to accept that, no problem.

"I'm not anxious", he said.

Here we compare our player ratings from the game with those from the Liverpool Echo, the Express, the Independent, Sky Sports, The Anfield Wrap, FotMob and the TIA readers. As long as Manchester City are around with their financial power, no team will pass them easily.

"We need to be very, very close to perfection to win the Premier League".

The club endured such dark days towards the start of this decade but the good times are well and truly back at Anfield. We were always competitive.

Having two Golden Boot winners is an impressive feat and Alisson Becker was also awarded the Golden Glove after keeping 21 clean sheets in his first year in the Premier League.

"We struggled a little bit today, we are human beings and it will be in your head, you can not deny it". We will keep going and then we will see what we get for that. 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.

Guardiola´s side have racked up 91 goals this season, but three of their past four wins have been 1-0 victories, including the nervy match against Leicester on Monday settled by a Vincent Kompany strike. So still being in the game, fighting for the result, scoring goals, celebrating - all of us. At that moment [when Liverpool fans celebrated Brighton's goal] it was a shock for everyone and Wolves were there. That is our face.

"What we did before, let's enjoy and appreciate it". Not the final seconds of it, but all of the rest.

Abu Dhabi-owned City look nearly certain to finish off the job and Guardiola said he has so much faith in his players that a pre-match team-talk will not be necessary.
