Jürgen Klopp has backed his Liverpool team to thrive under the pressure of the race to qualify for the Champions League.

Going into this weekend’s round of fixtures, the Reds sit third in the Premier League – four points clear of fifth-placed Manchester United, who have a game in hand.

Liverpool suffered defeats in two finals last season and fell at the last-four stage of this campaign’s EFL Cup, but the manager is confident they have the mental fortitude required to secure a return to European club football’s top table.

“Since I have been here we had one semi-final defeat,” Klopp, whose side host Southampton on Sunday, said.

“[We had] A very good performance against Man City in the [League Cup] final – that was not about not handling pressure. Yes, we did not win the penalty shoot-out, but if this is about not handling pressure I don’t know what you think it says about England teams over the years.
