Liverpool may have a historic treble in their sights, but manager Jurgen Klopp insisted pressure is not a factor as his side prepare to face Wolverhampton Wanderers on the final day of the Premier League season.
Liverpool, who have already won the domestic cup double, must beat Wolverhampton at home on Sunday and hope leaders Manchester City stumble against Aston Villa to secure the league title.

“I can’t talk about pressure on the other team, but for us there is no pressure,” said Klopp, whose team will also play the Champions League final against Real Madrid in a week.
“We know we have to win the game of football but we’ve had that now for a while. It’s not about ‘what if’. We don’t have that… For us, it’s very positive, it’s very special. And if you have something to lose. It would look different, but we don’t have that.”
Liverpool lost the title by City on the last day of the 2018-2019 season. Klopp said they will continue to make life difficult for Pep Guardiola’s team even if it is repeated on Sunday.
“The biggest defeats in my life have led to the biggest successes in my life, wherever I am,” the German added.
Whatever happens on Sunday, we will not stop. We will not stop trying. Yes, we have the best opponent in world football, which is a bit unfortunate, but they put us on their necks, which is not great either. So let’s see.”
City are seeking a fourth league title in five years, while Liverpool are looking for their second title since the 2019-20 season.
