Liverpool will not suffer title-race hangover, says sports psychologist

14 May 2019

Liverpool knew their task: beat Wolves and hope that Manchester City slipped up - sorry Stevie G - against Brighton at the Amex.

It is the third time Liverpool have gone close to the Premier League title having finished two points behind Man City in 2013/14 and four behind Manchester United in 2008/09.

Ruben Neves will be among those attracted by a possible move to Liverpool, says Stan Collymore, with the Wolves midfielder a good fit for Jurgen Klopp.

"It's incredible what they did all season and today was a odd situation". We did as well but they won it.

"We were 25 points off last season". I can read all the numbers.

"The team made so many big steps in the past year", he said, per the BBC. "We have three weeks to prepare for the Champions League final - let's give it a go". "That is what we feel", he said.

"But I am not anxious that this is as good as it can be". As long as City are around with the quality and the financial power that they have then it's not like any other team will pass them easily.

"Ninety-seven points wins every single league apart from last season so if we do that again we will keep knocking on the door and we won't be far off it". But really think there is more to come.

"We used the base from past year, but we have made a big step. That is the plan".

The wait goes into another decade for Liverpool.

Pep Guardiola's reigning champions sealed successive EPL crowns thanks to a commanding 4-1 win at Brighton.

"We wanted to write our own history and we did", Klopp told BBC Sport. It was a boost to a very good atmosphere, going nuts. "We were really good until 1-0, what happened then was clear".

"Very hard circumstances but we won 2-0 against a very strong Wolves side".

Mane wrapped up the victory with his second goal after 81 minutes. "That is special. This team is one of the best that ever played for Liverpool, 100 percent", Klopp said.

"It's a very special season, a better season than I played with my team [Borussia Dortmund] when we were champions in Germany". We accept that, no problem.

"Ninety-seven points was incredible".

"Congratulations to City, they deserved it by one point. The jobs of both managers and both clubs was fantastic". But it was Mane who grabbed both goals to end his season with an impressive 22 league goals. After such a hectic day and week we can be proud of ourselves.
