Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool must improve in all departments if they want to secure a top-four finish at the end of the season.

The Merseyside outfit have improved on their league position in each season under Klopp, having finished eighth during his first campaign before claiming fourth spot and subsequently Champions League football in 2016-17.

Klopp is hoping to secure a top-four spot at the very least by the end of 2017-18 and they are currently on course to meet that target as they lie fourth after 19 outings.

The German was keen to see his men challenging for the title this term, however, Manchester City already appear to have that wrapped up with a 13 point lead over second placed Manchester United.

Liverpool, who are priced at 1.57 to finish in the top-four, sit seven points adrift of United and four points shy of Chelsea in third as they gear up for their Boxing Day engagement with Swansea.

The former Borussia Dortmund manager has urged his men to cut out silly mistakes and feels they are capable of finishing as high as second if they continue to work hard in training.

Klopp said: “If we stay consistent and avoid our mistakes, mistakes like [on Friday], we will win much more games than we lose or draw.

“It looks like we could be second, third or fourth this year; that’s a fantastic situation.

“That’s what we are working on and for this we have to improve in all departments.”
