Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits there's no time for them to feel down after seeing Manchester City pip them to the Premier League title.

Victory over Wolves wasn't enough for the Reds as they finished a point behind the champions.

"The boys played an incredible season," said Klopp. "The whole journey of 2021-22 so far is absolutely exceptional.

"Congratulations to Manchester City and Pep Guardiola, all staff and all players, the whole club, for being champions. We were close but in the end not close enough."

City's season is complete but for Liverpool there is one more trophy on the line as they now switch their focus to Saturday's Champions League final against Real Madrid in Paris.

While the dream of a quadruple is over, the opportunity for a treble is very much alive.

For Klopp, there is no greater incentive needed for his players to find that bit extra than the outcome of Sunday's Premier League finale.

"We will try absolutely everything," he added.

"It's never happened before that you go completely without knocks into a final. We had our knocks.

"Losing the league today increases the desire to win next week."
