    Jurgen Klopp explain why Liverpool deserve champions league spot than Chelsea

    Both Liverpool and Chelsea are set for a crucial game on Sunday.

    Jurgen Klopp think Liverpool would reach the next level in their aim to again rival the best sides in the world if they confirm a top four place this weekend.

    The Liverpool boss is adamant qualifying for next season’s Champions League for the second successive season would be an even bigger achievement that his four consecutive years in Europe’s elite competition with previous club Borussia Dortmund.

    Klopp made a bold claim as he said his team deserve to beat Chelsea in their final day head-to-head over that last qualifying place.

    And he also insisted the failure of his side to have finished the job on time was due to injuries and their march to this season's Champions League final.

    “I think we deserve it, but we have to make the last step. Over the whole season, what the boys did in the most difficult circumstances… these boys have had to fight for each yard, the last six or seven weeks, pretty much the same group,” he said.

    “I really think they deserve it, but we have to make the final step ourselves because nobody will probably help us.”

    Klopp took Dortmund into the Champions League for four years running. But doing that this time while qualifying back- to-back with Liverpool would be an even more incredible achievement, he said.

    “It would be, yeah. In specific circumstances. I would say without injuries we are already there,” he argued.

    “Without the Champions League, we are already there. If we go out in the quarter-finals — [we would have played] less games. There would have been talk about no silverware again, but that’s the thing. In the specific circumstances, it would be massive. That’s the truth.

    “That was the target from the first day - Champions League qualification. If someone said to me, 'On the last day of the season you will have it in your own hands,’ I would have said, ‘Okay, I will take that.’

    “We could have done it a little bit earlier but we have to play this game.

    “That is absolutely okay. It is a very positive situation at the moment. Winning this game, and then prepare for the other game. Okay, to be remembered in 500 years then, yes, we have to win the other game, for sure. That’s it.”

    The Reds will get top four finish if the can beat Brighton on Sunday regardless of will transpire in the game between Chelsea and New Castle at Saint James Park.
