"This season until he stayed here he helped me a lot".

Chris Hughton admits the excitement of Brighton's first league game at Anfield in 36 years is tempered by the threat of suffering another thrashing.

Salah, who is also the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year, has not managed to add to his 43 goals this season in the last three matches, but Klopp insists he is handling the additional non-football workload perfectly fine.

Dejan Lovren made it 2-0 before Dominic Solanke and Andrew Robertson netted their first goals for the club.

"A almost ideal season for us".

And Klopp admits they've had an unbelievable season and had to target success in Europe because City were so good in the league.

"I'm sure we can do something special for the club this year to end".

Champions City have enjoyed a remarkable campaign under Pep Guardiola, smashing Premier League records for points earned, goals scored and games won.

Brighton & Hove Albion travel to Anfield this weekend to face one of the 2017/18 Champions League finalists in a game that means absolutely nothing to them, other than pride, as they're seven points clear of the drop. I'm very happy and very proud.

"With Champions League qualification at this moment, they have two ways to do it".

Klopp has come out and said: "We will see".

There is a sense that he is one player who could do with a break, but there is little sign of him getting one, as he prepares to join up with his worldwide squad for the World Cup shortly after the Champions League final.

"You want to be really focused".

"He is young enough and has enough potential to improve - that's really good news for all of us".

"But what he is, in his mind he is a real goal-getter and that's cool".

"We had a few more chances today, it's fantastic that Mo Salah could break the record and Dom and Robertson could score".

"To lose Michael was a big loss for us", said Conte, speaking ahead of Sunday's final game of the Premier League season at Newcastle.

The German feels the 13-day gap he has this time around can only be a positive, while Real Madrid have one week in between their final La Liga game of the season and the May 26 spectacle.
