Klopp faces centre-back dilemma ahead of Crystal Palace visit

It has felt like a lifetime since we were competing in big European games and playing in finals and winning trophies.

Liverpool will need more players with Lucas Leiva and Daniel Sturridge set to hold talks with Klopp at the end of the season, while Kevin Stewart is set to leave.

With five victories in their last seven games, Palace have climbed up to 15th in the league and are seven points clear of the drop zone.

The German said: "It would make sense if we signed a centre-back this summer - we have had injury issues in defence this season".

If Manchester United win both their games in hand they will be level on points with Liverpool, while Arsenal will be three behind.

In the relegation battle, Hull City, immediately above the drop zone, will hope to extend their two-point advantage over Swansea City when they host mid-table Watford.

Cavs waive Sanders, sign 2 players for postseason
Some good news for the Pacers is that Cleveland has been struggling in the final two months of the regular season. Irving added 23 points and six assists, while Kevin Love chipped in 17 points for the Cavs.

"If I fulfil my contract with Liverpool, then there is a good chance I will have won something here", Klopp added.

On reported interest in Joe Hart, Klopp: "Usually we don't talk about things like this. He is a fantastic goalkeeper, the keeper of the English national team, but we have highest quality goalkeepers, so it is not for us and hopefully not in the future", he said.

The 30-year-old Brazilian played the full 90 minutes of Liverpool's 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday but has been used more regularly as a substitute this season. "[Wilfried] Zaha, [Andros] Townsend, Christian, [Jason] Puncheon, they are really good footballers", Klopp said in Thursday's media conference.

If none recover the Reds boss is faced with giving Joe Gomez his first Premier League start since September 2015 following his recovery from a knee operation which prematurely ended his campaign last season. He cannot really train so we have to wait for when he can. He is already not patient any more.

"It's not 100 per cent that Lucas cannot play, it's not 100 per cent that Joel cannot play, it's not 100 per cent that Ragnar cannot play".
