Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has insisted his players can do no more in their bid to win the title after securing a late win at Newcastle.
The Reds, who have not won the title in 29 years, needed a late winner from substitute Divock Origi to take the race for the Premier League crown to the final day of the season.
However, a vital 3-2 win came at a cost as 26-goal striker Mohamed Salah was carried off on a stretcher after colliding with Magpies keeper Martin Dubravka.
The Egypt forward’s participation in Tuesday night’s Champions League semi-final showdown with Barcelona is now in serious doubt.
Klopp said after a pulsating 90 minutes at St James’ Park: “I accepted long ago that we do everything, absolutely everything, the boys throw whatever they have on the pitch. “That means whether we will be champion or not, it’s destiny. We do everything, we cannot do more. “Can you get more than 94 points? Not really.
The boys tried everything, even when we had the draws they tried everything to win the game. It’s all good.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
