‘The standards have been set’ - former stars optimistic about Liverpool future

That means over the past two seasons, City have amassed 198 Premier League points, which is 26 more than Liverpool, in second, have managed in the same period.

Liverpool finished with the third-highest points tally in top-flight history with 97, bettered only by City's 98 this season and 100 in the previous campaign.

The Egyptian striker didn't find the net on the last day as fellow African forward Sadio Mane scored twice in a 2-0 victory over Wolves.

The Reds, who last won the league in 1990, face Tottenham in the Champions League final on Saturday, 1 June.

"So we need to be very, very, close to perfection to win the Premier League as long as this is the case".

"Man City know, hopefully, we are here to stay". You can imagine in the summer the recruitment will be there again for them to strengthen, so I can see next season us contending again with the players we have and a relatively young squad mixed with experience.

"It's incredible what they did all season and today with a unusual situation", said Klopp. Celebrations then broke out around Anfield when it emerged that Brighton had scored against City, and there were another couple of false alarms as fake rumours of further goals spread.


"The team made so many big steps in the past year", he said. Always after a good year we lost key players [in the past] but we won't [this time] so we'll be there again.

"I don't care about another opinion, but we work so hard every day to be challenging to be as close as possible, but City were just a tiny little bit better than us, and that's football as well". I think it is not "if" we win something it is "when" we win something.

Spurs and Liverpool's epic Champions League comebacks, which set up a mouthwatering all English final in Madrid next month are discussed, and the lads give their predictions on the final outcome.

"We will try to improve and build a good team next season".

Liverpool and Manchester City were engaged in the title race since early September, with both teams apparently playing on an elevated level of their own.

"It makes me so much more happy that we played such a great team all season".

He said: "This title race between City and Liverpool was incredible for the competition and everyone who loves the game". We got 97 points.
