Jurgen Klopp: We did well to beat very strong Wolves

Liverpool have not won the title in the Premier League era and Klopp has rallied his troops for one final challenge, in what has been a thrilling race with City to top the table.

It is the third time Liverpool have gone close to the Premier League title having finished two points behind Man City in 2013/14 and four behind Manchester United in 2008/09. They have 198 points in two years, that's special. The nice thing is if you would get an award for the biggest development jump I can remember, the boys would get that because it was completely different.

"It's not easy but we've made a big step". It doesn't feel like this in the moment, it's not a moment for already telling people what they can think; everybody knows we will go again, 100 per cent. We tried everything to make it as hard as possible but not hard enough.

Manchester City finished the season on 98 points, Liverpool on 97 - with just one defeat to their name. It is so important we only worry about our team and what is happening at Anfield. "That's the season we played and next season is a different season".

"As long as City are around, with the quality and financial power, it's not easy that any other team will pass them. We need to be very close to perfection to win the Premier League as long as this is the case".

Liverpool's season is not yet over, as they can still finish on a high by winning the Champions League.

Fans were celebrating in the Anfield stands as news filtered through of a goal from Brighton, but it was a false alarm. "Always after a good year we lost key players [in the past] but we won't so we'll be there again".

Klopp did not seem disappointed by the failure as much as he seemed ready for the next season, saying: "The team made so many big steps in the past year".

As 71 minutes ticked by, Jota's point blank header was saved by Alisson and City made it 4-1 on the south coast through Ilkay Gundogan - virtually assuring themselves of the title.

"Even though this is clearly the best team Liverpool have had during those wilderness years, getting over the line to lift the biggest prize in English football has never been tougher". "We were unlucky against City but scored in the last second against Everton and late on against Newcastle, they could have been draws as well".

"We gave everything. We got 97 points".

And, on this road, to qualify for the Champions League final is pretty special. It would still be a fantastic season, but I wanted to see the boys really try.

All that was quelled as City roared back to win 4-1 at the Amex Stadium and Klopp admitted the atmosphere had been odd. "We will go again", Klopp said.
