Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says they won’t shy away from playing in the UEFA Europa League if the clubs end up for the qualification at the end of the season.

Despite having played one more game than fourth-place Manchester United, Liverpool is currently in seventh place in the Premier League and has little chance of making the Champions League.

Klopp stated that his team will seize all possibilities that are provided to them before¬†Sunday’s home Premier League showdown against Tottenham, who are currently in sixth position.

“We take what we get. It is not that we said that would be fantastic at the start of the season but this season taught us a few things. If it is Europa League, it is Europa League,” Klopp said.

“I want to play the best possible football. We have to be focused on the game coming up, that is Tottenham. What happens in the next few weeks will be very important for next season.”

To declare that his team is “out of the woods” is too soon, according to Klopp. With the win over West Ham in midweek, they have now won three straight games, their unbeaten streak has now reached five games, and they still have a slim chance of finishing in the top four.

For just the second time this season, Liverpool has a chance to win four straight league games on Sunday, but Klopp cautioned against assuming everything has come into place.

“It is, for me too early to speak about consistency,” he said. “Winning three games is not for me consistent, it is good but can only be the start of something.

“It is about consistency you show in performances even more than results. For the outside world it is the result but for us it must be performances because that is what we work with.

“I am happy with that in the moment because in all the games, as different as they were, I saw a lot of things we want to see in the games and that is then really good.

“There is always something to improve and that’s fine that’s what we try to do as well.

“I am absolutely OK with the moment but it is not that I already trust ourselves that much to say ‘That’s it now, we are out of the woods’ because this season gave us a few lessons I didn’t want to learn, but learned.’
