Jurgen Klopp must surely believe his side can go all the way and secure Champions League football for next season with Europa League glory after a late Dejan Lovren goal sealed a dramatic 5-4 aggregate victory over German giants Borussia Dortmund.

A heroic performance from the Merseyside outfit saw them come from 3-1 down to emerge 4-3 winners against a Dortmund side who outclassed title-chasing Tottenham Hotspur not so long ago. 

The Reds now find themselves just three games away from the Champions League and will be hoping they can maintain their 'big game' mentality and turn a rather mediocre Premier League campaign into a successful season.

Judging from last night's display, they have every right to be confident, with all the other remaining teams easier on paper than the high-flying Germans. 

Klopp will be hoping he can carry on inspiring his players after Divock Origi revealed that the eccentric German's motivational skills gave the players belief they could succeed after finding themselves 2-0 down at half time. 

The Belgian, as per the Guardian, said: "That's the class of a big manager. You could see no panic, no stress, he believed in us and in the end it helped. 

"He gives us belief and we tried to reward that, the belief if the fans, everything. The manager just said that we lived to play in evenings like this. 

"A lot of teams have qualities but when you had a good maager who is tactically strong and have a good club with good fans, then there's no secret. You can achieve great things."

Liverpool find themselves eighth in the Premier League, their league season effectively over, but qualification for the Champions League will be seen as a major success for Klopp, who took charge in October. 

The only negative for Liverpool last night was the injury to Emre Can, who twisted his ankle in the build-up to Sahko's equaliser.

Can, according to reports from the Liverpool Echo, will undergo a scan today and could miss the remainder of the season. 

Liverpool have been drawn against La Liga giants Villarreal in the Europa League semi-final, whilst holders Sevilla will take on Shakhtar Donetsk.
