However, Klopp sees it differently, as he told reporters on Friday: “Our last three games are really tough, from different points of view.
“I really have to say, what Sam did again at West Brom deserves all respect.
“Not only that they got points – OK, not enough now, we have to say – but the way that they played was completely different, made brilliant signings, how he always does.
“So they were really good when they fought for [their place], and I know when all the pressure is off because it’s now decided they will not stay in the league, then that can give you some good feelings to express yourself and just play football.
“That can lead to everything, so we have to be really focused, prepared and strong to make our things happen. It’s a tricky one.”
“Our season is defined by all the games, [but] these three games can give an extremely positive outcome. We know that,” he said.
“I said it last night, most of the teams in the world fight the whole year for it, to be in a position that three matchdays before the end they have it in their own hands to go to the Champions League.
“We are one of them, so as much as the season was full of different challenges and problems, we are in that situation all of a sudden.
“That’s good, so yes it’s positive, but we don’t now make the second step before the first.
“We played last night, we recover now, we are fully focused on West Brom and then we will see what will be the outcome there.
“But yes, if we could make it that would be really good.”
