Jurgen Klopp gives fresh and doubtful verdict on top-four race with Manchester United

Jurgen Klopp has given a fresh verdict on Liverpool’s involvement in the top-four race, with Newcastle United and Manchester United currently occupying third and fourth respectively.

After a considerably substandard season by their standards, Liverpool’s recent six-game winning streak has thrown them into the mix for a European spot.

As it stands, they’ll have to settle for the Europa League, but they’re certainly breathing down the necks of the Red Devils and Newcastle, who have both fallen victim to slip-ups in recent weeks.

United have three fixtures remaining, two of which are at home, where they’re unbeaten in the league since the opening day of the campaign, and one away.

With one trophy under Erik ten Hag’s belt and another final on the way in June, it’s been a significant improvement to the norm at Old Trafford. However, he, the players and supporters won’t really feel like it’s been a fully successful season without booking their place in the Champions League.

Ahead of the final games, Klopp weighed in on his side’s stance on the European places, saying (via Football Daily): “I expect United and Newcastle to win all their games, that means we have to win all our games anyway to keep distance to the teams behind us – that’s the first thing we have to be concerned about. If not, then we will see what happens.”
