Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has called on his team to focus on the “big moment” of playing for the Premier League title on Sunday and put aside the success of reaching the Champions League final.
The Reds staged a stunning second-leg comeback to beat Barcelona 4-0 on Tuesday night, but, before they take on Tottenham in the final, they face Wolves with the title up for grabs.
Klopp told a press conference: “It would be a big football moment for us. Nothing has changed for us, we knew it before.
“The only thing we can do is win. (Wolves manager) Nuno (Espirito Santo) is doing an incredible job there.”
Klopp believes Brighton, who face Liverpool‘s title rivals Manchester City, will put in a strong performance, even though they are safe from relegation.

Klopp added on fitness issues ahead of Sunday: “The famous four words in the dressing room this week is ‘It is only pain’.”
Klopp thinks Jordan Henderson and Andrew Robertson should be fit, and possibly Mohamed Salah – but Roberto Firmino will miss out.
Klopp added: “They should be fine (Henderson and Robertson). Bobby no.
“Mo Salah looked good in the celebrations and had been running the last two days.”
Klopp continued: “You get millions of messages (following the win over Barcelona) and no one speaks about the weekend.
“It was for sure one of the best moments in football history, not only Liverpool. But Wolves want to show they do not want to be passengers.
“Focus is not a problem. We are not used to moments of glory, but we win from time to time. Coming in on Wednesday you needed a hammer to punch the smile out of faces.”
