Mo Salah has shared pictures of the Liverpool team relishing a weekend hiatus in Barcelona as Jurgen Klopp puts his team in top shape ahead of their late battle for a Champions League spot.

Liverpool players were given time off after their 1-0 victory against Brentford on Saturday afternoon.

The Anfield side have an unusual eight-day hiatus between their game and their next clash against 18th placed Leicester City next Monday.

Egyptian attacker Mohammed Salah posted pictures of the trip after the squad’s return to training on Tuesday.

Salah was spotted posing with Rhys Williams, Jordan Henderson, Harvey Elliott, Luis Diaz, Kostas Tsimikas, Fabinho and Adrian in an evening out in Barcelona, Spain.

The ex-AS Roma attacker also posted a photo of himself alongside Luiz Diaz, as the attackers were recharging their batteries ahead of intensifying efforts at getting a Champions League position for next season.

The visit to the Spanish capital came four years after Klopp’s team famously defeated Barcelona 4-0 in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final.

The historic comeback saw Liverpool overturn a 3-0 first leg loss, before proceeding to defeat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 in the final.

The squad’s loss came after a tasking run of six games in 20 days, a run where Liverpool earned six successive victories to increase their ambitions of sealing a spot in the top four.

Liverpool players were helped by Newcastle and Manchester United who suffered losses during their trip to Barcelona.

Newcastle United were smashed 2-0 by Arsenal on Sunday, while Manchester United were defeated 1-0 by West Ham United.

Liverpool sit two positions behind Newcastle United and three points adrift Eddie Howe’s Magpies. 

The Reds are one point behind Man United, but have played one game more than both Newcastle United and Manchester United in the hunt for the top four.

Liverpool have three matches remaining this campaign with two being away fixtures against Leicester City and Southampton who are fighting to beat the drop.

Jurgen Klopp’s side also face Unai Emery’s Aston Villa who have been impressive since the Spaniard took over the side mid-season.

Newcastle United

Newcastle United take a trip to Leeds on Saturday before welcoming Brighton and Leicester City to the Saint James Park as they seek to play Champions League football for the first time since the 2002/03 season.

The Tyneside based club play their final game of the season by visiting Frank Lampard’s Chelsea who have had an abymsal season by all standards.

Liverpool perennial rivals Manchester United battle Wolves and Bournemouth in their next two games, with the Old Trafford club hosting Chelsea and Fulham in their final games of the season.

The race for the top four in the top-flight league in England certainly promises to be breath-taking, nerve-racking and eagerly contested between the sides involved.
