Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has asked on his players to “step through the door” as they look to seal a place in the top four in the Premier League.

Chelsea’s victory against Leicester City on Tuesday night allowed the Reds to move into the top four with success against Burnley on Wednesday, with Liverpool seizing the fourth spot ahead of the final day of the season.

Liverpool are now level on points with Leicester City, but beat them by four goals on goal difference, while the Reds sit one point behind Chelsea in third, but with a better goal difference.

As a result, Liverpool could still profit from any slip-ups by Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea side against Aston Villa to finish third, although Klopp has advised his players to sharpen themselves, and not depend on what is falling elsewhere.

“The door opened for us a little bit and we have to step through, that is what the boys did,” he said, referring to Liverpool’s 3-0 win against Burnley on Wednesday night.

“We only have to focus on us. Last Thursday, Sunday, Wednesday, Sunday is the toughest period you can imagine. We have to recover properly, take one session and be at our best vs Palace.”

Despite Leicester’s loss at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, a top-four finish is still feasible for Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes, who welcome Tottenham at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.

And although Leicester can still move above Liverpool with a big win against Spurs, Klopp has said that is not something his players can restrain, calling for the Reds to only focus on getting their own job done at Anfield.

“Because of the situation we are in, unless something strange happens and Leicester are four or five up and we’re 0-0 we won’t look at it. It’s in our hands. Someone will tell me if something strange happens. We will play a top game, that is the plan.,” he said.

“It was a strange, intense season, nothing will change that but now we can finish it in a top way. It’s not done yet, it’s football. We’re not even close to a celebration, we just focus on the 95 minutes we play.”

“It would be great if we could do it [Champions League] – it is really exciting as well. The boys will be tired after the season – but for now it is all good.”
