Jurgen Klopp is backing his Liverpool FC team to get their top-four job done when they take on Brighton and Hove Albion next weekend.

The Reds suffered a blow to their hopes of finishing in the top four this season when they were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea FC in the top flight at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

That result left Liverpool FC needing to beat Brighton at Anfield next weekend to guarantee their place in the Champions League for next season, with Chelsea FC potentially moving level on points with Klopp’s men if they win their game in hand in midweek.

Liverpool FC are currently in third place in the Premier League table as they look to seal their spot in the Champions League for next season.

And Klopp is backing his side to do their job against Brighton next weekend.

Speaking at his post-match news conference on Sunday, Klopp said: “That’s my life, always until the last matchday.

“Middlesbrough were already relegated that day, right? I saw Brighton against [Manchester] United and it doesn’t look like that would be an easy game, they were really good that night.

“It’s football, if you want guarantees then you have to do something very different.

“The boys showed me that they are really ready to fight and to fight and to fight. The situation is very intense for the boys and I am really happy and proud of them how they deal with it.”

Klopp is also aiming to steer Liverpool FC to Champions League glory when they take on Real Madrid in the final in Kiev at the end of the month.

The Reds booked their place in the final thanks to an impressive aggregate victory over AS Roma in the semi-finals.
