Soccer – Klopp warns against complacency

Coach Jurgen Klopp has warned his Liverpool players not be complacent when they face Middlesbrough with a Champions League spot potentially on the line. A commanding 4-0 win at West Ham on Sunday left the Reds in third place in the Premier League table with just one game left to play, meaning that a victory at home to Boro will ensure a top-four finish. However, Klopp is taking nothing for granted, while also saying that a repeat of the performance against the Hammers would ensure a successful end to the campaign. He told reporters: "I've been in the business long enough to know the biggest mistake is counting points before you have them. We won't do this, we want this Champions League position. "If we win we deserve to be in the Champions League. If not, we don't deserve it." Liverpool have also won their last four home league meetings with the Teessiders and are 1/5 with bet365 to take all three points again next Sunday.
