Liverpool head into their final game of the season needing three points and a lot of luck if they are to be crowned Premier League champions ahead of Manchester City.

Jürgen Klopp’s men host Wolves at Anfield and a draw would see their tally rise to 90 points – the third time they will have done so in the past four campaigns – but would likely only have one league title to show for it.

“It’s all about us to make sure we can be as good as possible,” said the 54-year-old. “The rest we don’t have a real influence on.

“We have a talented group and we will have a talented group next year, but we have to make a proper machine of it again. And then we go, and then we will see.

Liverpool are the only side who have come close to challenging Pep Guardiola’s men in recent years but Klopp is aware of the likely improvement of the sides that sit below them.

“Nobody has to worry that the gap will stay forever or whatever,” said the German manager.

“It was the hardest work to get here. So if we take the foot a little bit off the gas then immediately it’s not whatever the gap is at the moment, it’s immediately three points and that’s nothing.”

Hopes of the quadruple remain alive for the Reds as following Sunday’s Premier League climax Liverpool face Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
