Jürgen Klopp: Liverpool totally deserve to be in Champions League

Charlie Adam

Yet, having inherited a Chelsea side that finished 10th after a turbulent season which had seen former manager Jose Mourinho sacked and Guus Hiddink working as an interim coach, he feels they are in a stronger position now than in 2016.

Klopp spoke ahead of this Sunday's final league meeting with Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield - a game from which the Reds need a point to secure a top-four finish.

The fifth-placed Blues, champions last season, must win at St James' Park and hope Brighton can win at Anfield to have any hope of beating the Champions League finalists to a place in Europe's elite club competition next season.

He then flew to London after the event to finally be given the FWA Footballer of the Year gong, adding to PFA Player of the Year. Among other exits, it will be the end of Wenger's 22-year reign at Arsenal and Wayne Rooney's last match in the Premier League before a reported switch to MLS side D.C. United.

"It can happen. Last season, after a 10th place, we won the league".

"We had a great season and now we are in the Champions League final, and everyone is excited".

Kevin de Bruyne's midfield spot is hardly a shock to the system and whilst Eden Hazard might not have had his best season for Chelsea it's still not THAT surprising.

Salah, who has gone three games without a goal, needs just one more effort this season to set a new Premier League high for a 38-game season.

Despite all this a recent good run of results had left many people questioning whether Chelsea would be making a mistake by letting Conte go at the end of the season.

"The situation, especially for a place in the Champions League, is not in our hands".

"The numbers are there, and when you look at what they have done this year, you know that they will put us under the cosh".

The final day of the season is always an opportunity to bid farewell to departing players and staff, but this year will be more significant than most.

One would struggle to think of a more impactful debut season than that which Mohamed Salah is now enjoying at Liverpool. Now we are in the Champions League final and we have one (league) game to win or draw to be in the Champions League next year. I think we did this.

The Egyptian ace said: "I'm very happy here, I'm very happy and everything is fine". We will play to win against Real Madrid, but for now we are thinking only about Brighton.
