One cause for concern is that Liverpool have failed to win any of their last three home games.
"It's important of course".
"Chelsea has the money, Man City is now coming up - wonderful players, big signings - Man United is Man United, but we are a really interesting project". If not, we don't deserve it.
Firmino sat out the 4-0 win at West Ham with a muscle injury but has been involved in light training this week.
Klopp: "It is clear". We have to perform and we have to win.
"The best thing would be if we are 4-0 up after two minutes but that's not possible".
"So far a successful season and we want to finish successful", Jurgen Klopp told the media in his Friday's news conference.
Because of the strides made under Klopp this season some are building up the game as representing the start of a new era for the five-time European champions, but Klopp has no such feelings. The start is important but if it is not good it does not mean we will stop. It's pretty easy. I'm not sure if I've said it before on the importance or whatever, but it only could be more important if we thought before another game this season that it was not that important.
"Middlesbrough are a football-playing side".
"If you give Middlesbrough the opportunity they can play football, they have good players".
Klopp acknowledges that his squad will need strengthening regardless of what happens but stressed that he does not want signings who are motivated exclusively by the prospect of Champions League football, adding that he believes the perception of Liverpool's standing has improved and this will help with recruitment. That's not the worst circumstances for playing good football.
"We are there and we have to be as ugly to play against as possible to play". It's not about performing and stuff like this.
"That is a little bit the situation but we are not one second without our captain because Hendo is always around".
Wenger's side have a home game against Everton, a team that have already beaten them this season in the Premier League - indeed, that loss was one of the many triggers of their downward slide this season.
"If you do it 18 years in a row in the Champions League like Arsenal people say, "It's only the Champions League". "Fans, players, managers love it".
"We are already good". It's money we didn't have last year or the year before.
