Following Saturday’s goalless draw at Crystal Palace, which ended Liverpool’s chances of finishing in the top four of the Premier League, manager Jürgen Klopp declared that this season’s performance would not go down in history.
Liverpool was aiming to bounce back after losing 5-2 to Real Madrid at home in the Champions League on Tuesday, but the Merseyside club struggled to create any rhythm at Selhurst Park, leaving them dissatisfied.
With 36 points, Liverpool is now in seventh in the league, six points behind Tottenham Hotspur in fourth place with one game remaining.
“I see in your eyes and the players’ eyes as well (that) it looks like we lost the game – we didn’t,” Klopp told reporters on Saturday.
“We spite ourselves with a lot of things, but you cannot suffer because of our own history. That would now be really a joke.
“This will not be the season that everybody (looks for) in the history books… it will not be big movies about it or stuff like this. But we have to go through it anyway and we will.”
Wednesday’s league match against Wolverhampton Wanderers is Liverpool’s next scheduled opponent before hosting Manchester United four days later.
