Liverpool 3-2 Manchester City: Klopp on quadruple chances


Saturday's triumph at Wembley kept Liverpool's bid for an unprecedented quadruple on track while ending City's hopes of a treble of their own

With the League Cup already in the bag, a place in the FA Cup final secured, a Champions League semi-final showdown with Villarreal booked, and with just a point between themselves and City at the top of the Premier League, Liverpool could produce a finale like no other to this season.

But after their FA Cup 3-2 semi-final win over Manchester City on Saturday Klopp was eager to downplay his side's chances.

"To go through against City is incredibly difficult and intense, and in three days we play again against Manchester United. They will be on their toes, and it is historically not a friendly game.

"A few days later we face Everton, that will not be a friendly game. Then we face Villarreal, that will not be a friendly game. Then Newcastle. It's incredibly intense and it is really unlikely the team will win all the games.

"We came here, we wanted to go to the final, we knew about the problems, but with the quadruple, qualifying for this kind of final makes it even more difficult. It is the only way to do it, but it makes it more difficult as well. It is a strange situation, but we are over the moon. We beat the strongest football team in the world and that is a pretty special moment."
