Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is hopeful that a drama-filled week of football has one last twist in the Premier League finale this afternoon.

The past week has thrown up some incredible story lines in English and European football, including Vincent Kompany’s stunning goal for Manchester City last Monday night, incredible comebacks from Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League, and Chelsea’s penalty shootout triumph to join Arsenal in the Europa League final.

The Reds need one more day of drama to claim the Premier League title in the final round of matches this afternoon.

‘Pool need to defeat Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield and hope that Brighton & Hove Albion do them a massive favour by denying Manchester City (who hold a one-point lead) in a concurrent match on the English south coast.

"It was a week of, I'm not sure miracles, but of big football moments," Klopp told Liverpool's official website.

"From our point of view, there could be a big football moment for us as well on the weekend.

"The week is not over yet. Sunday counts to this week not for next week. So, of course we go for that."

The German added, "In this situation obviously it looks like Wolves and Brighton, they are there, City will win and we will win and at the end City are champions.

"But there's a game to play. Wolves have shown the whole year real ambition.

“They are seventh in an unbelievably competitive league from getting promoted last year. That makes our game pretty difficult.

"And on the other hand, Brighton, it's their last home game in the Premier League season. They know they will have another one next year for sure.

“How I know this team, they are full of joy for football, so they will try everything as well."
