Liverpool are in a surprise position at the moment, as they may not be in the Champions League next season.

Last season’s Premier League champions have been knocked out of every cup competition, including the Champions League where Real Madrid kicked them out in the quarter-final stage.

Liverpool are currently in 6th position and have had a season to forget, after a phenomenal campaign last term.

Klopp has even admitted that next season won’t be any easier, and has listed Chelsea as part of the teams that will fight for the trophy. According to Klopp, new Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel was presented with a fine gift.

“We are responsible for the things that happen to us. We were involved in the last few years constantly in semi-finals and fighting or league titles,” said Klopp.

“I don’t know if other teams felt bad because of us but I wish for them not, I’m not like that. I’m not a person like this.

“They [City] deserve the situation they are in. That is football, that is fair. They won an awful lot of games. United turned the game around [against Roma] – like they did 20 times this year. ‘I had my bad moments in the season for other reasons, not because other teams are winning more games than us.

“That’s not my problem, my only problem is with the opponent of the specific weekend and not think, ‘oh my God, City again and United are back on track’.

“Life is too short for these kind of worries or thoughts. ‘We will challenge them again next year but this year we can only finish our season as good as possible and we have nothing to do with semi-finals and finals.

“It always becomes harder because City never stops. That is clear. They did not stop and they will not stop.

“United is coming up definitely everyone can see that, Chelsea is obviously in a brilliant place, a top squad.

“Thomas [Tuchel] inherited a present and you can see that they are really good so it will not get easier.

“We’re not just talking about City there will be other teams for sure. We have to deal with all the other teams who are outstandingly strong but still go under the radar like Leicester: brilliant manager and a top squad dealing with different situations.

“Nobody should write off Tottenham or Arsenal. Obviously West Ham is now flying. How can it be easier? It is not only City.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
