Jurgen Klopp looks at Tottenham duel

After a conveyor belt full of high-pressure equipment, another one is growing on the horizon for Jürgen Klopp and his storied Liverpool team.

With FA Cup and Champions League final spots secured, attention now turns to the Premier League, where the Reds are still a point behind Manchester City with four games to play. However, a win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday would be enough to temporarily put Liverpool at the top.

Given the way City slumped in the Champions League on Wednesday, that pressure could be enough to shake them a bit when welcoming Newcastle United on Sunday.

Klopp names final “favourites”

Klopp believes Real Madrid are “big favourites” to win the Champions League final after his remarkable comeback against City.

The Spanish giants made their way before Rodrygo’s goals in the 90th and 91st minutes sent the tie into extra time. Karim Benzema then won it for Madrid as they included City along with Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea in the list of teams conquered in Europe this season.

As for the final, Klopp suggests the caliber of opposition Los Blancos had to overcome to get to Paris gives them the advantage, despite bookies making Liverpool favorites for the game.

“It was strange and unfortunate for City, but what Madrid did was outstanding. They beat PSG, Chelsea and City. We’ve said it before about Villarreal, if you knock out Juventus and Bayern, you deserve it, in To be semifinals, finals and if you knock out those three guys then you definitely deserve to be in the finals.

“They are the big favorites now, all the experience they have and all that stuff. We’re more experienced than us, but that’s not comparable, a lot of players are still there for them and for us, which is a good sign. It is going to be great!”

Salah clarifies Liverpool’s role

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has said he sees himself more as a winger than a striker, despite his impressive goalscoring record.

Since Salah’s arrival, he usually played up the right flank as part of an advanced trio. From this position he can put opponents under pressure and also has the freedom to shoot into dangerous positions.

Presenting the Football Writers’ Player of the Year awards, the Liverpool sensation said he doesn’t see himself as a striker.

“I’m not a striker because I play as a winger,” he said. “I don’t play number 9, I play on the wing. It’s very different when you play as a winger. People count me as a forward but they shouldn’t because I don’t play as a forward. In our last game, [Diogo] Jota was our striker and we have that [Sadio] Mane as No. 9. I’ve never been No. 9.”
