Liverpool vs Chelsea: We don’t have rights to go to Champions League – Klopp cries after 1-0 defeat

Jurgen Klopp has insisted that Liverpool do not have the rights to go to next season’s Champions League after their 1-0 defeat to Chelsea in the Premier League on Thursday.

The German described the loss as a “massive blow” to his side’s hopes of finishing in the top four.

It was Mason Mount’s first-half strike that gave Thomas Tuchel’s side all three points at Anfield and handed the Reds a fifth straight home defeat for the first time in the club’s history.

Chelsea found themselves in the top four with the victory and Klopp’s side are now four points adrift of that with Everton and West Ham ahead of them.

“It is a massive blow,” Klopp told Sky Sports.

“It is not done yet, but we don’t have to talk about if you lose that many games, you don’t have the right to go to the Champions League.

“We have to win football games and we know that and we will work on it, but for tonight, it was not enough.”
