Klopp: Liverpool must manage 'emotional and mental effects' of Champions League comeback

Jurgen Klopp said his Liverpool team could not have done anything more after they finished just one point behind defending champions Manchester City in their bid to win the Premier League title.

The midweek drama of Liverpool's 4-0 win over Barcelona to reach the Champions League final against Tottenham Hotspur on June 1, removed some of the disappointment on an afternoon that ended with a lap of honour from the players with their families.

Liverpool's point total is the third-best in Premier League history behind City this year and their 100-point side last year.

Nuno Espirito Santo's Wolves have an excellent record against top-six opposition this season, and they'll be aiming to spoil the party at Anfield. The physical effects are that we have a few more players with bumps and bruises. We had to fight.

He added: "Congratulations to Manchester City". They have 198 points in two years, that's special.

Liverpool lost out to Pep Guardiola's side by a single point, ending the season on 97 points, a tally that would have been enough to lift the title in every other season bar the past two.

This is Anfield's Henry Jackson described Mane as "one of the best players in Europe at the moment" after the game, as he drew level with Salah and Aubameyang.

Liverpool finished fourth last term with just 75 points, meaning this year's squad has made a 22-point improvement.

Manchester City's Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne lift the trophy as they celebrate winning the Premier League playing against Brighton & Hove Albion at The American Express Community Stadium, Brighton, Britain on May 12, 2019. "We need to be very close to perfection to win the Premier League as long as this is the case".

"The team made so many big steps in the a year ago", Klopp told BBC Sport. We made such big steps. "We've got a hell of a team and there's still everything to play for", he said. City got the points they have because we were there. "We were really good until 1-0, what happened then was clear". It's only the first step and we'll be there again.

"We gave everything. We got 97 points".

Mo Salah echoed his manager's words, congratulating City and warning them that they'll be fighting for the league again next season.

"I am very proud of this team, it's a very special team and I am very proud to be part of it", said Dutch defender Van Dijk. In any other season (bar last season), they would have been champions. "We are going to work hard again and hopefully try to do it".

What a season Mane has had.

"We have been outstanding all season and left everything out on the pitch". The only thing that could have dropped my mood a little bit is if we would have lost today.
