Reds Can End Talk Of Late Top 4 Drama
The Merseysiders are the better team and despite a few careless dropped points lately they will know they can end the Champions League qualification chatter on Sunday.
We were starved of a proper title race this season so perhaps that’s why some people are desperate to pitch this match as a crunch battle for Champions League qualification.
In reality even if Liverpool lose, their vastly superior goal difference means that a home win over ‘safe’ Brighton on the last day will see them home regardless. Chelsea could keep the pressure on Spurs, but even that looks like a forlorn pursuit.
The outgoing champions will hope Liverpool aren’t fully focused because of the Champions League but that final isn’t till May 26th so Klopp can surely get minds right for this trip.
If he does then Liverpool are great value at an enhanced 6/1 with BetFair to win with both teams to score.
Similar happened to Chelsea when they hosted Spurs a month ago and lost 3-1. The sides above the Blues are there on merit and we should back quality over narrative.
