Naby Keita scores Liverpool's fastest ever Premier League goal

"We had to deal with everything during the season and the boys did brilliantly".

With Barcelona having prioritised winning the Champions League this season after years of Real Madrid dominance, Lionel Messi was even seen promising the trophy to supporters in August, something which Suarez remembers fondly.

But for Klopp, it remains a vital opportunity, as he urges his players to fight until the final day and supporters to keep faith, telling those who do that they are "welcome to my club".

Asked by DAZN to name the sides that he goes out of his way to watch, Klopp said: "Whenever I have time I like to watch Dortmund because I'm still connected with them". Five things you need to know... That's how it is and only because the club is waiting for a long time, the people are waiting, that doesn't make it more likely.

Keita's goal came days after Southampton's Shane Long scored the fastest in Premier League history, a 7.69-second strike against Watford on Wednesday. Once we're playing there'll be no friendship, no mates, none of those lovely memories. The midweek derby means that City and Liverpool have played the same number of games so it's a lot clearer what City have to do, with no more games in hand to worry about.

Barcelona will win La Liga with three games to spare if they beat Levante on Saturday, but manager Ernesto Valverde has ruled out resting players. Next season Chelsea's getting better, (Manchester) United too.

Liverpool are looking to win their first league title since 1990 but Klopp's focus was on how this season has been a stepping stone for the Anfield side that will look to improve and compete for more titles in the future.

"There are three games to go and it was at that stage it sort of disappeared for us, but both teams have been absolutely brilliant this season".

They could get over-confident and feel that they have the job done before it is done. "That is what we have to do again".
