Jurgen Klopp downplays Liverpool’s Champions League hopes after huge win over Leicester
The Reds moved within a point of fourth-placed Manchester United and third-placed Newcastle with a big win over Leicester on Monday night.
Curtis Jones scored twice at King Power Stadium before Trent Alexander-Arnold netted a goal to secure a sixth straight win.
After such a disappointing season, Liverpool finish the season strong and could still overtake either United or Newcastle in the closing stages.
They host in-form Aston Villa on Saturday before ending the season with a trip to a Southampton side who have already been relegated.
Still, Klopp insists Liverpool remain underdogs despite their unremitting winning streak.
“That’s all we can do. I don’t think it’s likely [finishing in the top four] When you see how Newcastle and United play, they have so much quality,” he told Sky Sports.
“It would be a real shame if they slip and we’re not there. So we have to do our job.”
