Jurgen Klopp believed they have a huge job to do in order to return to the Champions League next season as they difficult fixtures after international break.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp have shifted his focus on qualifying for next season’s Champions League following their exit from the tournament.

The Reds couldn’t overturn the result at Bernabeu last night which saw them fall in the hands of the European champions once again.

Karim Benzema’ second half goal was enough to weaken Liverpool who seek more than three goals for secure their qualification.

speaking after the game last night Klopp stated that they have a huge task in front of them in order to secure a place in the Champions League next season.

“When we get back from the international break we have a proper football week ahead of us, with three games, City, Chelsea, Arsenal, which will then probably define what we get out of it.

“People will say that we lost it at Bournemouth, but this week is a pretty decisive one.

“So, we have to hope the boys come back healthy enough, in the right shape, and we will try it.”

Having already exited the domestic cup competitions, Liverpool’s elimination from the Champions League guarantees a trophyless season, but Klopp insists they will give their all to finish as strongly as possible in the Premier League to secure their goal.

“Our job is to squeeze absolutely everything from this season as possible,” he added.

“It’s a strange one so far, just our recent two games, a sensational performance against Man Utd, a very good football team, and a really bad performance against Bournemouth, again a good football team, but we should not lose this game.

“That put us again under more pressure. Three points, and I think everyone would have really felt it, smelt our breath if you like.”
