After two weeks without a game, the Reds are back in action this weekend, as Jurgen Klopp‘s side look to go second in the table, for the time being at least.
The business end of the season is now in full flow, and three points at Selhurst Park would be another significant step in the right direction.
Klopp spoke to reporters on Friday afternoon, and in a fairly low-key press conference, the 50-year-old said beating Palace is just as important as Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final against Man City.
“We will play Palace with all we have, with all intensity and concentration,” Klopp said.
“For a player or manager of Liverpool, the whole year is at least about qualifying for the Champions League.
“Both games are about qualification for the Champions League, one is for next year and one is for this year. They have the same importance, no difference for us.”
“Clyney is fit. He played for the Under 23s during the international break and will be part of the squad tomorrow, at least,” he added.
“That’s good for us”.
