Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp described Liverpool’s prospects of winning the Premier League as “not probable but feasible” after the under-strength quartet extended the championship battle to the last day of the season with a 2-1 win over Southampton on Tuesday.
Klopp made nine changes at St Mary’s after Liverpool overcame Chelsea on penalties in the FA Cup final three days earlier. Despite fielding a reserve side and falling down to Nathan Redmond’s early score, Liverpool rallied with goals from Takumi Minamino and Joel Matip.
With one game remaining, the Reds are only one point off leaders Manchester City.
City will win a championship fight for the ages if they defeat Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
Klopp stated over the weekend that he did not anticipate City to lose against Villa.However, if Liverpool beats Wolves at Anfield and City fails to win, they will be crowned champions for the second time in three seasons.
“Of course, it’s doubtful given City face Aston Villa at home on Thursday.” It is feasible, though unlikely. “Enough,” Klopp said.”It’s our final home game of the season; the atmosphere will be electric, and we’ll do our best to capitalize on it.””Of sure, it is possible. Football may be a difficult game at times. Tonight was our one opportunity to win. We completed our task. We will never give up.”
Klopp’s team will be required to do their share against Wolves, especially now that their rested key players can return.
Sadio Mane, Luis Diaz, Andrew Robertson, Thiago Alcantara, and Trent Alexander-Arnold were one of players omitted against Southampton, whereas Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk got injured at Wembley.
“I’ve never had a group like this before. They are always pushing each other. Finally, it is simply wonderful, and tonight is particularly memorable “Klopp stated.”If we had played the men that played 120 minutes on Saturday, we would have had a lot more issues today.”
He added, “If things hadn’t worked out, it would have been entirely my fault.” It all worked out in the end, and the lads should be quite proud of themselves.”
Liverpool’s stress paid off in the 67th minutes.
