Liverpool do not need any reminders of a 2-0 defeat by Chelsea that effectively ended their Premier League title hopes in the 2013-14 campaign, manager Juergen Klopp said on Friday.

It's a completely new story, it's all about the game on Sunday, and it has nothing to do with the game before. We arrived with a very clear idea and we did the game we had to do in that moment. We know how they play, we know how risky they are.

"We have targets in the Premier League and in the Europa League".

The incident has been condemned by both Liverpool and Chelsea, with both clubs quick to issue statements.

In addition to this, they also thanked Chelsea for their condemnation and quick reaction towards this disgraceful incident confirming that they are working directly with the club on the matter.

"I played against him personally a few times and it has always been a tough position because he is very good and very strong, but I've scored a few goals playing against his teams", he said, per football.london.

"We want to make the next step because it's not over yet".

"It's not easy. In some situations you can't defend and hopefully help will come in from somewhere else".

But, while Maurizio Sarri's players will be hopeful of extending their fine record at Anfield - Liverpool's longest winless run against an opponent - they will be wary of the home team riding the crest of a wave of emotion.

"On his day he can be the world's best".

"We have to create the power of Anfield and use it", Klopp said.

Henderson has learned lessons from seeing Manchester City steam ahead to claim title glory in the wake of Liverpool's loss to Chelsea back in 2014. No, because it's the only one we play this weekend. "But Chelsea are a really hard team and they are in a good moment", Klopp added. Repeat up to 5 times to receive maximum €/£100 bonus.

Chelsea had already prevented three people from entering the stadium before Thursday's game after a video emerged on social media showing them chanting about Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah being a "bomber".

That could also ease the run-ins for City and Liverpool, with the champions still to travel to Burnley and Brighton, while Liverpool visit Newcastle in the penultimate game of the season.
