Alexis Nunes and Steve Nicol go toe-to-toe in predicting fixtures from the final match day of the Premier League season.
Reflecting on the past two months of action, you'd be forgiven for thinking that it had been a two-horse race throughout the entirety of the current Premier League campaign.
Liverpool welcome relegated Middlesbrough to Merseyside on the final day of the Premier League season, hoping to cement their place in the top four - potentially leapfrogging Manchester City - while holding off the challenge of fifth-place Arsenal and avoiding a nervy play-off. It was suggested to Klopp that the confidence taken from getting across the line could see the start of a more positively consistent Liverpool.
"[There] are a lot of things you can think about this game but at the end it is a football game", he said. "Liverpool is a really interesting prospect for players that might come to this club and Champions League would be the icing on the cake".
We will need Liverpool to not win, or Manchester City to lose to have any chance of climbing into the top four, and we may to do so without some key players. If we have enough points after this matchday then we deserve Champions League.
'Director of football, when I say that, is a guy who decides the decisions that are normally are down to the manager.
"We approach this game like we do always", said the Dutchman.
"I don't think we need different kinds of descriptions for this game, so it's a "cup final" or a "World Cup final" or that it's the most important game of however many years and everything", Klopp told the club's official website.
Klopp made clear in the past that he would not be interested in a player whose sole motivation for coming is to play in the Champions League. That doesn't change with or without Champions League, this or that would be possible or not.
Liverpool have prised a vast number of players from the Saints in the last three years, with Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, Nathaniel Clyne, Rickie Lambert joining Mane in making the well-trodden journey to Anfield.
You can watch Liverpool's final game of the season live on TV. "Fans, players, managers love it".
"It is important for players because that is what they want to play but it is the progress and development and a positive perspective of a club that is important for players and we are powerful will be successful in the future".style="text-align: center;"
