Claude Puel puts the pressure on Liverpool ahead of Southampton’s trip to Anfield


The Saints boss is unbeaten against the Reds in three games this term

  • 17:17, 6 MAY 2017

Claude Puel has placed the pressure on Liverpool ahead of his Southampton side’s trip to Anfield on Sunday.

The Saints have relatively little to play for with them comfortably in 12th with three games in hand over West Ham and Bournemouth, who both sit a point above the south-coast club.

In contrast, Liverpool are closing in on qualification for next season’s Champions League, but dropped down to fourth following Manchester City’s 5-0 hammering of Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Reds also face competition from Manchester United and Arsenal, with both sides meeting at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

And Puel has tried to place the emphasis on Jurgen Klopp’s side ahead of Sunday’s game – but the Frenchman believes his two wins over the Reds in January’s EFL Cup semi-final ties will have little bearing.

He said: “Liverpool want to play in the Champions League next season so it is an important game for them at home.

“Liverpool are a good team but I am sure we can have opportunities to win this game.
