Klopp: Chelsea showdown is like a CL semi-final

Kenny Dalglish says Liverpool will have enough to see off Roma and make the Champions League final More

Antonio Conte's men have three league games remaining to Liverpool's two, meaning if the Londoners win their remaining fixtures they will, at worst, finish level on points with the Champions League finalists.

Team-mate Sadio Mane echoed those thoughts by stressing they are capable of taking on anyone and winning, as evidenced by their two victories over Pep Guardiola's all-conquering Manchester City side in the quarter-final. "We have to play football games to make that happen".

"We battle and challenge with the best clubs in the world and whatever you can do to bring yourself in a better position to get these players you should do it". You must be ready to fight, prepared to play against them.

"I did very good there".

A Liverpool win this weekend would make it impossible for Chelsea to catch them, ensuring the Reds will qualify for next season's Champions League with a game in spare. If you can not be champion, you want to qualify. In a little tournament, like the FA Cup or Carabao or Champions League or Europa League, sometimes one decision can move your future. Unlike nearly every other player in the world, Ronaldo truly only needs one chance to score. "Then Brighton (on the final day) could be very important as well". No chance to think about anything else. "Our work with the players so far has been more than anything emotional".

'These fans just want this club to compete and they want to be proud of their team. We are usually much better in these situations.

And despite that poor start, Madrid is now faced with two games to decide if their season is a glorious success or abject failure.

Americans Held in N. Korea Have Been Moved
The White House can't confirm the validity of reports about the release of three Americans detained in North Korea, Sanders said. Kim Dong-chul, a South Korea-born American pastor, has been detained in the North since 2015 when he was arrested for spying.

The earlier games against top teams and his comments at the press conference point the way towards Chelsea's tactics against Liverpool.

Liverpool have endured multiple injury issues late in the campaign, with the likes of Emre Can, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joel Matip sidelined and Adam Lallana on the comeback trail.

It wasn't too apparent in the last league encounter against Stoke because Paul Lambert's side were intent on grabbing a draw, yet even they might have snatched an unlikely victor near the end.

Predicted lineups: Chelsea: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Rudiger; Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso; Willian, Hazard; Giroud.

Jurgen Klopp could name an unchanged side for Liverpool's crucial top-four showdown against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

"[Ian] Rush was brilliant but if you think about where he scored a lot of his goals, he played down the middle and got a lot of chances".
