It has been an excellent April so far for the Reds as they progressed to the Champions League semi-finals courtesy of a 5-1 aggregate win over Manchester City and have also maintained on course to finish in the Premier League’s top four.

Just days after reaching the Champions League last four, Liverpool beat Bournemouth in the league 3-0 on Saturday and Klopp said the result was ‘exceptional’.

‘It was a very intense 14 days for the boys, very intense from all parts – physical and mental,’ Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com. ‘It was really hard. So what they did [against Bournemouth] was exceptional, to be honest.

The mood is so positive in Liverpool; we had a walk in the city – which we always do when we’re in the hotel – and it kind of felt like a parade already, people were clapping their hands and beeping their horn and shouting “well done”. We still had to play Bournemouth.

‘We know it was good but the next game needs to be good as well. That’s quite a challenge for the human side of us. The boys did really well.’

The league’s bottom side West Brom will be buoyed by their away win against Manchester United last weekend.

Klopp’s side are in third place, just one point behind rivals Manchester United in the league standings.
