Klopp on Liverpool transfers: 'We are pretty much done'

Share

Former Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy believes Jurgen Klopp securing Champions League football is a "great achievement" given the vulnerabilities they have defensively.

"I think the club has a strong foundation, a strong organisation and everything to be one year out and come straight back in, like Chelsea did last season".

City routed Watford 5-0 with Sergio Aguero netting a brace in the win that ensured their direct entry into the Champions League, while Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 2-0 to finish sixth with goals to Paul Pogba and Joshua Harrop.

"Overall I believe that we played since January in a very hard environment for different reasons", Wenger said.

The formation switch has also helped bring Bellerin back to his best form and the Spanish wing-back was in exceptional form as Everton were put to the sword by Wenger's 10 men, scoring his first goal since April 2016 to give Arsenal the lead on eight minutes. "They are both exceptional players and obviously you always want to keep your exceptional players".

Mustafi missed yesterday's closing Premier League win over Everton after suffering a blow to the head during the win over Sunderland at the Emirates last Tuesday night.

While Klopp's first-choice XI is arguably able to compete with some of the continent's top sides, this season - with a run to the semi-finals of the EFL Cup and injuries to key players - has shown the squad needs significant improvement.

Liverpool went into this contest knowing that they have struggled at home recently, picking up just two points from their previous three Merseyside encounters.

"It feels really outstandingly good at the moment but feeling on a good way is one (thing), showing you're on a good way is another thing and I think again we showed that we deserve this position".
