The Welsh side's struggles this season have mainly been down to a lack of firepower, as Carlos Carvalhal's team have scored just 27 league goals, the fewest of any top-flight team.

Speaking ahead of the clash, via the Daily Mail, Klopp insisted that his side would need to have their wits about them to ensure a fourth placed finish ahead of Chelsea, stating: "I think we deserve it but we have to make the last step".

Jurgen Klopp has discussed the reasons behind Liverpool's unbeaten home record this season. "It will be a hard day for us and we'll have to defend very well as a team", said Hughton.

Jurgen Klopp told his players they could be remembered for 500 years if Liverpool win the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who is now recovering from knee surgery, won Liverpool's Goal of the Season award, as voted by fans, for his thunderbolt strike against Manchester City in the Champions League at Anfield.

Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all due to stay on the sidelines for the remainder of the season but should be fit to go again next season. The manager seems to believe that this game is a final of sorts and will want his team to play likewise.

"I would prefer Mo went to bed early and watched a movie", Klopp said at a press conference on Friday.

The Merseyside outfit will need to beat Brighton and Hove Albion to secure a spot in the Champions League next season. "I really, really respect him a lot and I'm sure we are going to do something special for the club this year". Any toll that has been taken on players' legs after a long season is already there now and unlikely to be eased much by one game sat in the stands.

Emre Can is still expected to sit out the remainder of the season as the German looks likely to have already played his last game for Liverpool - sour feelings aside, I can't thank him enough for his impact on this season's campaign and, providing he goes overseas, I wish him the best. I love that from our captain to the youngest player in the squad our boys recognise that representing these supporters is a massive privilege and I love that there is a shared appreciation in this moment of each other.
