Klopp: Liverpool wants to go as far as somehow possible in the Europa League

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is satisfied that they secured top spot in their Europa League group with a game to spare.

Liverpool will finish as Group winner after a 4-0 victory against LASK at Anfield on Thursday. Cody Gakpo scored twice, and Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah also were on the scoresheet.

Two top results for us tonight in the group,” said Klopp.

“It was clear, with the defeat at Toulouse (last time out) we made it a bit more tricky but because of our result and their result we are now top of the table and that will not change.

That’s good, very important in the busy schedule we have from now on.

A lot of positives in the game, a lot of good football. The thing I didn’t like too much. and told the boys at half-time, (was) this game should have been put to bed already at half-time.

“You cannot play better, you cannot set it up better, (but) you can finish it better obviously – but we didn’t.

Caoimhin (Kelleher) worked for his clean sheet, which he desperately wanted, and that’s good.

We scored a fourth goal in the last minute or whatever. so result top, performance really good (and) nobody got injured. All good.”

Klopp: We want to go as far as possible

Liverpool is in third place in the Premier League after 13 matches, but Klopp insisted that they still want to go as far as somehow possible in the Europa League this season.

Unfortunately, my career is not like this where I can choose, to be honest,” he added.

“I have to take what I get. When we play the competition it’s the most important competition on the planet. Easy as that.

“But now we play Premier League on Sunday (at home to Fulham) and so that is then the most important competition, definitely.

We want to go as far as somehow possible (in the Europa League).”
