Jurgen Klopp has warned Liverpool against Newcastle and Manchester United

Newcastle United and Manchester United have received a warning from Jurgen Klopp, who has promised that his Liverpool team will keep up the pressure in the Champions League race.

However, Klopp acknowledges that he believes his Liverpool team has left it too late to challenge for the top four and doesn’t anticipate either Manchester United or the Magpies to falter.

With a 3-0 victory over Leicester on Monday night, Curtis Jones’ quick-fire double and Trent Alexander-Arnold’s spectacular goal kept Liverpool’s push for the top four alive while pushing the Foxes closer to the bottom three.

With Liverpool only one point behind both Newcastle and Manchester United and having played one more game than both teams, the Magpies host Brighton in a crucial game on Thursday night.

Liverpool appeared to be out of the running for a Champions League spot a few months ago, but with a seven-match winning streak, they have made a late push for the top four.

This is already better than we could have anticipated six or seven weeks ago, according to Klopp. “Our job is to keep the pressure (on Newcastle and Manchester United), but if not, this is already better,” he said.

What it means to us, I have no idea. We had Chelsea on our back four or five years ago, and they were consistently winning. The year we came in fourth and had to compete in qualification, I believe.

“We needed to win the final game, and up until then, we had to win big because our opponents were consistently outperforming us.

If I’m being honest, I expect them to succeed just as we did.

“However, it keeps you on your toes, and that’s our job; we have to keep them on their toes and then we’ll see what happens.

I didn’t think it could happen six or seven weeks ago. Consistency was something we lacked at the time.

“Because we really convincingly controlled it, the game never developed into the game it could have been, a real fight, challenges everywhere. ”.

On Saturday, Liverpool plays host to Aston Villa before going to relegated Southampton on the final day.

Leicester will be demoted if they lose at Newcastle on Monday night if Everton wins at Wolves on Saturday.

Despite maintaining his optimism for the Foxes’ survival, manager Dean Smith expressed displeasure with the Premier League’s scheduling, which saw Leicester play on back-to-back Monday nights.

“We are all supporters in here; we all support clubs, and you want to see your club succeed,” he said. When Liverpool took a 2-0 lead, they defeated us by outpacing us physically.

“I wouldn’t doubt our resolve or our attitude, but I comprehend and we all need to pay attention to the backers. I understand why supporters might react in a certain way if their team is losing at home by a score of 2-0 or 3-0 and is in danger of being demoted.

“Of course I think they can survive,” you say. Playing on Monday nights bothers me because I don’t think it’s appropriate. At St. James’ Park the following week, we will undoubtedly be aware of our obligations. “.
