Liverpool opinion: Win or lose, this season should be cherished as Jurgen Klopp creates a base for the future

Liverpool showed their mettle against Cardiff City as they ran out 2-0 winners.

The Bluebirds gave it their all, but Liverpool have bigger plans for the remainder of the campaign.

The win took our tally to 88 points, the most we have ever recorded in the Premier League era. Yet, there is a chance we won’t end the season with the Premier League title.

Liverpool could win their last three games and finish on 97 points, but Manchester City could pip us by a solitary point.

Not winning the title would be a bit of a disappointment, but this season has shown that Liverpool are turning into a different beast under Jurgen Klopp.

Reds need one small slip from City

The Reds still could end up with the Premier League title but City have to drop points in their remaining fixtures.

Of course, we need to win our Premier League games and City play three of their last four league games away from home.

This includes trips to Manchester United, Burnley and Brighton, none of them sure wins. Pep Guardiola’s men have also played some high-intensity games in recent weeks, and that could take a toll on them.

Klopp creating something brilliant at Liverpool

Liverpool have been a beast this season and are waiting to pick up should City make a mistake. We have lost just one game in the Premier League all season, and have one of the best defences in Europe.

The ride so far has been exciting too, despite the lack of the crazy one-sided wins from last season.

That doesn’t take anything away from the team. In fact, we seem to control games against the big sides as easily as the lesser talented ones.

Second-half goals have become a norm for the Reds in recent weeks with important strikes against Chelsea and Cardiff giving us 2-0 wins.

The Reds work hard all around the park, and there really isn’t a kink in the armour. Yes, we could do with more creativity in the heart of the park but our full-backs give us another dimension in the attack.

Jurgen Klopp has turned the side around in his four years at Anfield, and the great bit is, he seems to be making the side better in every campaign.

Reds dominant in Europe again

Liverpool are doing equally well in the Champions League since returning to Europe’s elite club competition.

We have defeated Manchester City, AS Roma, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and Napoli in the last two seasons, and are set to face Barcelona in the semi-finals.

This Liverpool side can take on the best without any fear, and it will be an interesting clash to see how we deal with the genius of Lionel Messi.

In fact, Klopp hasn’t lost a two-legged European tie during his time at Anfield.

The Reds have a fantastic base to build upon and we have added quality in each season under Klopp. Liverpool would be winning the league if it wasn’t for a team like Manchester City competing against us.

City have a better squad compared to ours, but that hasn’t stopped us from taking them on.

Liverpool dealt a blow in hunt for promising teenage starlet as Serie A giants are unwilling to sell the player

Liverpool FC transfer news: Inter Milan unwilling to sell Sebastiano Esposito

Calciomercato claims that Inter Milan are unwilling to sell their rising starlet Sebastiano Esposito despite interest from Liverpool.

The 16-year-old was given his debut this season when he came on to face Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League knockout rounds.

Inter could not defeat the Bundesliga side but there is interest in the 16-year-old from Manchester City too (h/t Calciomercato).

The report adds that Inter see him as the future of the club and will only look to loan him out or let him play in the Primavera League.

The 16-year-old has already made a big name for himself with some great performances for the Italy U-17 team, and he seems set to remain with the Serie A giants for a while.

Liverpool need to build on their great season

The Reds have a great first XI but could do with more talent to strengthen the squad.

Esposito might be highly rated but it would be unlikely seeing him break into the first-team or even push the likes of Rhian Brewster and Divock Origi for game time next season.

Liverpool need to build on an impressive season and it will be interesting to see our moves in the transfer window. The Reds missed out on the Premier League title by one point but can finish the season on a high by winning the Champions League.

Liverpool FC transfer news: Reds cool interest in Uruguayan striker Maxi Gomez

Liverpool have cooled their interest in 22-year-old Maxi Gomez, according to the Daily Star.

The report claims that the Reds enquired about the Uruguayan sensation, however, they have backed out of a deal to sign the Celta Vigo attacker.

The report adds that the forward has a £43m release clause in his contract and there is interest from our Champions League final opponents, Tottenham.

Spurs have made contact with the player’s representatives, according to the report, while there is also interest from Borussia Dortmund.

Liverpool have a couple of up and coming strikers in the team

Roberto Firmino is the first-choice striker in the team and the Reds have a couple of young options who could do a job in place of the Brazilian.

Divock Origi was the surprise package of the season, nabbing some important goals despite not featuring a lot for the team. The Belgian bagged a brace against Barcelona recently and even scored the winners against Everton and Newcastle in the Premier League.

Rhian Brewster also seems set to play for the first-team next season, and the forward is one of the most highly-rated youngsters we have in the team.

Latest Liverpool news: Liverpool players reach Marbella for Champions League final training

Jurgen Klopp and the rest of the Liverpool team landed in Marbella for their Champions League final training sessions.

The Reds face Tottenham on June 1 at the Wanda Metropolitano for the final of the tournament as they look to win their sixth Champions League crown.

Liverpool visited Marbella earlier this season, and there was one major surprise joining the team in the training camp.

Naby Keita was initially ruled out for the season by Klopp after he picked up an injury against Barcelona. However, his national team manager Paul Put believes the Guinea midfielder could be back for the Champions League final (h/t Liverpool Echo).

The heroes from the win over Barcelona looked to be in the mood, with Georginio Wijnaldum pictured alongside Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Divock Origi, who scored a brace against Barcelona, could get a start in case Roberto Firmino isn’t fit for the final.

The usual suspects for Liverpool

Mohamed Salah also checked into the training camp and the Egyptian could be the difference maker for us in Madrid.

Virgil van Dijk has been excellent for us from the day he signed for us, and his leadership at the back will be one of the keys to winning the Champions League.

Our captain, Jordan Henderson, was also one of the stars in the win over Barcelona while Trent Alexander-Arnold’s crosses led to two goals against the Catalans.

Andy Robertson returned from injury to face Wolves on the final day of the season, and he should be ready to play in the final.

Alisson also pulled off some fantastic saves against Barcelona and won the Premier League Golden Glove award.
