Klopp still not getting carried away


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists nothing has changed despite the Reds extending their lead at the top of the English Premier League as fans sang ‘we’re gonna win the league’ on Sunday.

Liverpool closed in on a first League title in 30 years on Sunday, beating Manchester United 2-0, meaning a 16-point lead and a game in hand over Manchester City, who drew 2-2 with Crystal Palace on Saturday.

After Mo Salah’s second goal, fans at Anfield sang ‘we’re gonna win the league’ for the first time this season, and though they believe the title is coming back to Merseyside, Klopp is refusing to get carried away.

“They can sing whatever they want, apart from my name, before the game is finished. I am not here to dictate what they have to sing. If our fans would not be in a good mood now that would be really strange,” he said.

“What I can tell you is we are here to work, it’s as easy as that. Of course, it’s a very positive atmosphere, but I have to keep myself concentrated. Of course they are allowed to dream, free to sing whatever they want, as long as they do their job when we play. We will not be part of that party yet, but it’s no problem,” said the German mentor.

Incredibly, Liverpool have now taken 91 points from the last 93 available to them in the Premier League.

They also became the first team since Arsenal in 2001/02 to score in their first 22 Premier League matches of the season.
