Klopp also pointed to the recent form of Brighton, who have now picked up 10 points from their last four games and registered back-to-back scalps with this win following another over Tottenham by the same scoreline last Sunday.

It will now remain a long second-half of the season for the Mersey side as they have confirmed that Joel Matip has been ruled out for the remainder of the campaign due to an ankle ligament injury.
