Anthony Knockaert reveals what it's like to play against this Liverpool side

Liverpool needed a point against Brighton on the final day of the season to secure Champions League qualification but ensured there were absolutely no nerves at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp’s side ran out 4-0 winners and, coupled with Chelsea’s 3-0 defeat to Newcastle, comfortably finished in the top-four in the end.

As for Brighton, they had already secured their Premier League survival with victory against Manchester United last Friday and had very little to play for.

And it looked very much as though they were already on the beach as Liverpool cut through them time and time again.

Liverpool only scored four but, in truth, the scoreline flattered Brighton.

Liverpool will be playing in the Champions League final against Real Madrid in less than two weeks time and maintained their unbeaten league season at Anfield with ease.

And Brighton star Anthony Knockaert brilliantly explained what it was really like to play against the Champions League finalists when they are in full flow.


“It’s good for us. It’s a great team who will play the final of the Champions League in two weeks,” he said.

“They are a different class and it just another world. They have got a lot of quality.

“It is incredible. The pressure they put on the ball, it’s like they have always got three players around you.

“It is amazing to see that but it’s good for English football – and it’s good for us that the job was already done.”

Class from Knockaert.

Of course, Klopp’s side will face a much tougher task of beating Zinedine Zidane’s Madrid side in Kiev.

But with almost two weeks to prepare for the final, you’d imagine Liverpool will on the top of their game as they bid to win their sixth European Cup.

Knockaert and Brighton couldn’t live with them but can Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid?
