Jurgen Klopp has said his Liverpool side are “men on a mission” ahead of the much-anticipated end of their title run against Manchester City. The Reds will clinch their second Premier League title if they beat Wolves and Pep Guardiola’s side fail to overcome Steven Gerrard’s tenacious Aston Villa side.
With the title firmly in Manchester City’s hands, the Reds still have a chance of securing an unprecedented ‘quadruple’ triumph this season. Liverpool have already won the League Cup and FA Cup, and still have a Champions League final clash against Liverpool at the Stade de France.
However, Klopp also revealed his side will have to overcome Bruno Lage’s tricky Wolves side with Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah starting the contest from the bench. The Liverpool duo both limped off in their FA Cup final triumph over Chelsea and were deemed not fit enough to start against Midlanders.
They will also miss Divock Origi, who is expected to leave the club and join AC Milan at the end of the season. But ahead of a potentially historic day for Liverpool and the Premier League as a whole, Klopp gave a final rallying cry to his side.
“We decided a while ago that we were men on a mission and we have been doing that ever since,” Klopp told Sky Sports News. “We try to win football games and nothing has changed since then. The boys gave us the opportunity to be in it today.
“We just have to take the opportunity and try to win the football game here today, which is hard enough. That’s all I’m worried about. We have to be in good spirits – the whole stadium On the outside, it looks like it means a lot to people today. We’ll see what happens.
