Boss on top-four race, progress and Stoke

Jürgen Klopp’s sole focus in the remainder of the season will be on Liverpool’s opponents, not the fortunes of their rivals for a place in the Premier League’s top four.

The race for Champions League qualification looks set to go to the wire, with just six points separating the Reds in third with sixth-placed Manchester United as 2016-17 enters its closing stages.

However, Klopp is interested only in how his own team performs in their final seven games of the campaign.

“All the opponents we play because they have only one target, that’s football,” the boss replied, when asked who he sees as the biggest threat to Liverpool’s ambitions of securing a top-four berth.

“There’s nothing else I think about. The situation is as it is, so it is our situation. We play now Stoke and all the other teams – we don’t play them any more so we don’t have influence on their games.

“They play their own season and we have to get as many points as possible and we will see where it ends.

“I don’t think that 60 points, or 62 or 65 will be enough to go to Champions League so we need to collect a few more points and then after Middlesbrough [on the last day of the season], we’ll know exactly where it ends.”
