With Jurgen Klopp’s side in sixth and in a fight for a top four finish, tonight’s game was previously crucial to their hopes for next season, but with the possibility that the club would not even be in the Champions League, the importance is now less clear.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side will look to cement what has been a tremendous season on their return to the top flight in England, with three points able to cement their top-half status and take them above Arsenal - another founding member of the Super League - into ninth place.
Klopp actually spoke on the issue surrounding a Super League back in 2019 to Kicker, making clear his disdain for the idea: “I hope there will never be this Super League. With the way the Champions League is now running, football has a really great product. For me, the Champions League is the Super League in which you don’t always have to play the same teams. I also don’t feel like my club has to be seeded. Of course, it’s economically important, but why should we create a system where Liverpool can play against Real Madrid for 10 years in a row? Who wants to see this every year?”
