Jurgen Klopp: Why the focus is on the West Bromwich Albion game not on Sevilla


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says his players have to be fully focused on today's game before thinking of the Europa League final in Basel.

The Reds face West Bromwich Albion this afternoon before flying to Switzerland ahead of Wednesday's final against Unai Emery's men.

But the German insists a win today is very important as Liverpool continue to chase the sixth place in the table.

"It's [today's game is] very important because we can step up two positions in the table," Klopp said.

"We don't have it in our hands, but the only way to climb the table is to win the game at West Brom, which will be difficult enough.

"Maybe they have not been in the best run in the last few weeks in the league, but they secured safety early in the season so they've never been in doubt about being relegated.

"That was quite a successful season for West Brom. They will [want to] have a good finish, 100 per cent. We will try to find the line-up to win at West Brom, that's my job and we will see what happens.

"For us at the moment, it's the most important thing in the world because it's the only thing we have to do. Sunday afternoon, playing at West Brom and, if possible, winning the game.

"[The Europa League final? Sevilla] are very experienced, not only because of winning finals in the last two years, but because they are a strong side, they defend well, they [have a] brilliant counter-attacking game, they have good footballers.

"They are strong, that's how it is. But we are strong, too. If we play our best, then it's a really open game, and open games you can win.

"If we don't play our best, then it will be quite difficult. Sevilla are not better than we are, we are not better than Sevilla, it's not about this. It's about doing the right things in the right moment, that's what's always important in football and we know the importance of these decisions. We are prepared but, in the end, we have to do and that's special."
