, the Hammers drew 2-2 with City at home to help Liverpool. With a win against Southamton, the difference between the points of the two teams at the top of the table will reache 1 point. The competition for the championship of the league has become very intensive and in the final week, both teams have a good chance to win. Now Klopp claimed that they do not expect City to lose points twice in a week.
"I don't know when the last time they dropped pointed twice in a week historically. I don't expect City to drop points but in an ideal world, we go into Sunday one point behind."
Asked about 18/19 season, the German said: "When they played Brighton right? Brighton went 1-0 up? I could hear it in the stadium, they probably scored. I knew in that moment it was too early. If I had heard it in the 90th minute, I'd have probably celebrated."
"All I felt was pride after the game. The way to boys performed and produced consistency in performances. I knew in that moment we would get another chance."
Klopp added on his team winning trophies:
"The public view on us is slightly different. We feel the responsibility as Liverpool FC to win trophies. The FA Cup is a massive competition. It felt great. It takes the pressure off and makes it more enjoyable."
Asked about UCL final, Klopp replied:
"It would be massive to win it, but Real Madrid are the most experienced UCL team on the planet. They have won the league - we have two massive games between now and then. One of them is tomorrow night."
