Klopp - We're not giving up on dream

The Premier League title may be slipping from their hands but Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says he has not given up hope of Champions League success.

The Reds host Barcelona tonight in the second leg of their semi-final battle, the Anfield club needing a miracle to overcome that 3-0 deficit from the Nou Camp.

Last night's win for Manchester City over Leicester will probably deny the Reds the title, but Klopp wants his men to have a "proper go" at Barca.

"There's hope and it's football. We are far from giving up," said Klopp, missing Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino due to injury.

"Two of the world's best strikers are not available and we have to score four goals against Barcelona to go through after 90 minutes. It doesn't make life easier but as long as we have 11 players on the pitch then we will try it."
