Just One Premier League Player Played Every Minute Of Every Game

A 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield - secured through a Sadio Mane double - lifted the Reds up to a final total of 97 points but they finished one behind Manchester City in the table.

As the Reds reflect on a record setting Premier League campaign that still did not end in a league title, they are looking to strengthen their squad. "It was brilliant, 97 points is incredible, and only because City are there was it not enough".

Robertson backed Liverpool to stay a step ahead of the chasing pack next term and made it clear City can expect another powerful challenge from Merseyside. We did as well but they won it. If we are ready to make the next step, we will make the next step.

Liverpool's only loss was to City at Etihad Stadium on January 3 and the team hasn't dropped any points since March 3, a 0-0 stalemate at Merseyside neighbour Everton that completed a run of four draws in six league games in a five-week span.

"It is not possible to ignore the impact of Tuesday night, but I think it is on us - again all of us, not just the players - to make sure we take it and use it as an advantage", Klopp wrote in his programme notes for the Wolves game.

"We will try to improve and build a good team next season".

Alva and Alberta Pilliod claimed they used Roundup for more than 30 years to landscape their home and other properties. A federal jury in San Francisco ordered the weed killer maker in March to pay a Sonoma County man $80 million.

Manchester City have already claimed the League Cup and on 18 May can win an unprecedented domestic treble. But was quick to slam those who question the fact that Liverpool are yet to win the Premier League and haven't won the league title for 30 years.

"On Tuesday night we didn't care what anyone outside of the LFC family thought about our situation - we were all about creating our own moments". If we do those same steps again that will be a season.

"This team is one of the best to have ever played for Liverpool but we play in a league with other very good teams and we have to accept that, no problem". That is the competition we are in.

And Klopp said: "We have three weeks to prepare for the Champions League final - let's give it a go". "We had to do the work defensively".

Cox said the key for players was knowing they did all they could and, by posting the highest points tally not to win the title in history, Liverpool have certainly done that. The boys were all there from last season apart from Alisson. We will keep going and then we will see what we get for that. It is also the connection we have with the fans that helps us through tough, tough moments, through tough games.
