Premier League: Klopp and Liverpool buy Europa League ticket

Jürgen Klopp is sure to be in the Europa League with Liverpool. So that it is also enough for the premier class, he has to extend the winning streak to nine successes and blunder the competition.

After the seventh win in a row and qualifying at least for the Europa League, Jürgen Klopp was visibly satisfied. Even if there is probably only a minimal chance for him and Liverpool FC in view of the desired Champions League participation.

“Six, seven weeks ago I didn’t believe that was possible. Obviously what we lacked at the time was consistency and there was only one chance for us to get into that situation – to win pretty much every game and that’s exactly what we had to do, it’s crazy,” said Klopp after the 3-0 (2-0) win at Leicester City.

Klopp: “Absolutely great”

The Reds are still in fifth place in the English Premier League and are only one point behind Newcastle United (3rd) and Manchester United (4th). However, both competitors played one game less than the Klopp team. Only the first four teams make it into the premier class. “We knew before the game that if we win we’d qualify for the Europa League, which we think is absolutely great,” said Klopp.

In Leicester, the visitors dominated the game almost at will. Two goals from Curtis Jones (33rd and 36th minute) paved the way to an away win that was never in jeopardy. Trent Alexander-Arnold scored the final score with a dream goal from an indirect free kick in the 71st minute. Meanwhile, Leicester City, coached by Dean Smith, still has to worry about staying in the league. With two games left, the sensational champions of 2016 are second to last in the table. The gap to the first non-relegation place is two points.

Klopp will be hoping for blunders from the competition as he heads into the premier class as his side need to win both games against Aston Villa and away at relegated Southampton. “Probably Newcastle and United aren’t looking at us, they’re confident – that’s all right. But we’ve been in similar situations and you wish your opponents could just lose and you can take that pressure off your shoulders,” said the 55- year olds. He doesn’t think it’s likely that both opponents will stumble, but if they slip, we have to be there.”
