Jurgen Klopp has warned his Liverpool FC team that their clash against Brighton and Hove Albion is their most important game of the season.

The Reds are in fourth place in the Premier League table and two points ahead of Chelsea FC with a place in the Champions League up for grabs.

Liverpool FC will qualify for Europe’s premier club competition as long as Klopp’s men avoid a loss to Brighton at the Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

The Merseyside outfit have failed to win their last four Premier League games following stalemates with Everton, Stoke City and West Brom.

Chelsea FC were 1-0 winners against Liverpool FC at Stamford Bridge last weekend before a 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town mid-week.

Liverpool FC will take on current holders Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kiev later this month.

Speaking to Sky Sports about Liverpool FC’s home clash against Brighton, Klopp said:

“As long as we are not 100 per cent in the Champions League, this last game is the most important of the season.

“I’ve said it a few times, all the things we’ve done so far have built a basis, we have to use the basis. The basis is obviously good because if we win against Brighton we are in the Champions League.

“That’s good but there is still a job to do. I have no problem with that. That wasn’t because of the Chelsea game, it was all the other games; Tottenham and Everton at home when we dropped points.

“That’s the situation but it’s no problem to play the game, we have to play it anyway so now we have to win it, that’s it.”

Liverpool FC are looking to secure a top-four place in successive seasons for the first time under German head coach Jurgen Klopp.

The Reds were 7-6 winners against AS Roma in the Champions League semi-final to book their place in their first Champions League final since 2007.
