Liverpool will face Wolves at Anfield and hope they can keep their four-fold dream alive.

The Times reported that a number of fireworks were set off outside the Titanic Hotel in Liverpool at 1.45am, where Klopp’s side were staying.

Merseyside Police attended following a number of reports a man was talked to and taken home.

It is the latest in a string of incidents of fireworks being launched outside team hotels ahead of critical games.

Videos circulated on social media of pyrotechnics being set off outside Chelsea’s hotel ahead of their clash with Everton, which the Toffees went on to win.

Similar reports were also made ahead of Everton’s clash with Crystal Palace this week, but the Eagles opted to fly to Merseyside on match day.

There have yet to be any reports of it bothering Liverpool players ahead of their game with Wolves.

“Imagine someone telling you before the season that you are going to all three cup finals and you want to fight for the league,” Klopp said ahead of Wolves’ visit.

“You would say ‘Yeah, good luck with that’. It’s actually not possible, but the boys did it – fed by the people here in the building (the training ground), by our supporters, by all that kind of stuff.

“It’s been hard but great. It’s absolutely a joy to be part of it. To be part of this group is exceptional. By the group, I don’t mean only the players, we are here in the construction of the group. It’s crazy.

“Working with these people is pure joy. Being where we are is so rare, you can’t plan it.

“It’s a fantastic moment for a Liverpool supporter and now we have to make sure we enjoy the last two games as well.

“The most enjoyable thing in football is winning football matches, it makes everything so much easier.

“Two massive games coming up, one straight on Sunday, and we have to make sure we’re ready for that.”
