The Scouser in our team.
Putting pressure on top-four competitors
Jürgen Klopp’s expressions at the end shared it all– this was a substantial win for his side.
As Ozan Kabak emphasised ahead of time, every video game between now and the completion of the period is a must-win.

The Villa win does, without a doubt, keep alive Liverpool’s hopes of protecting a Champions League certification location. However, some members of the team will not constantly be inspecting the league standings, therefore.
” It’s more important for us to concentrate on ourselves and also obtain ourselves to the degree we have actually been at and also obtain that uniformity back,” Milner said.

Salah has seven games continuing to be in his quote to protect his third Golden Boot honour since coming to Liverpool.
A big week ahead.
” This today aids, naturally,” Klopp admitted throughout his post-match interview.
Liverpool will certainly now hope to carry the momentum from the Vacation home success right into Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final meeting with Genuine Madrid.
Madrid that themselves safeguarded a morale-boosting win over title rivals Barcelona on Saturday, holds a 3-1 advantage from the initial leg– requiring an additional Anfield return in Europe.
