Klopp confident Liverpool can handle last day pressure

21 Mai 2017

Everton boss Ronald Koeman has emphasised he can handle the pressure of increased expectation and is relishing the challenges of next term.

"If we have enough points after this match day then we deserve to go to the Champions League, if not then we won't deserve it".

"We'll do everything we can to set the team up well in order to put up a top performance for our supporters", said Agnew, who is thought unlikely to get the manager job full-time. "It's the end of the season, middle of the development, start of the new season".

To summarise the above, we need Dortmund to do us a favour, Roma to drop points or CSKA Moscow to stand strong in the East as we approach the end of another dramatic season. Plenty will disagree, but I know lots of fans who feel the same way.

"I can not say that but I'm pretty sure that from a mental and a tactical point of view, we have had a very good evolution".

"What I would say is that no decision has been made regarding my future as of yet".

"But it is really a nice challenge for next season".

"Let's wait to see what we can do".

"We are there and we have to be as ugly to play against as possible to play".

"After that, what happens to me is less important". His last programme notes recall the "indelible memories" of victories over Manchester United, Everton, Leicester and Arsenal at the Emirates.

There may well be one final twist before the players all disappear off on their holidays, with Arsenal, Man City and Liverpool competing for the final two Champions League spots.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has spoken to a number of transfer targets and said he noticed an increased desire to play at Anfield following the club's progress this season.

They are a point ahead of Arsenal and if they match the Gunners' result on the final day, they will also be playing Champions League football next season.

"You know being the manager of clubs like Arsenal is always hard (in terms of criticism). It should not sound disrespectful to the past [Liverpool teams and managers] but I really think we are kind of back on track".

The new set-up would see the creation of a role overseeing contracts, logistics and even pooling together medical information to streamline support for Wenger.

But if either team fail to win, and Arsenal beat Everton, a playoff on a neutral ground could yet decide positions because goal difference and goals scored - the deciding factors if teams finish level - are very tight.
