Reds goalkeeper Alisson has stated that Liverpool are planning on remaining at the top of the domestic and European stages for a long period of time.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has turned Liverpool into a force. In the past seven months, the Reds have won the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.

Liverpool are also likely to add the Premier League title to the aforementioned list, as the Reds currently possess a 22-point lead at the top of the table. Alisson has stated that his teammates have no intention of slowing down, either.

Alisson told Premier League Productions: “We want to win the title and for winning the title, you need to win everything. We are just looking for our main goal and what is behind is behind.

“We have to focus on our quality. We have an amazing group with amazing players – one goes out, the other comes in.

“Adrian, for example, when I got injured, he comes in and performed really, really good. An example of the other boys, Fab goes out and another one comes in and it’s the same. Everybody helps a lot on the pitch.

“We are enjoying this time because it’s good to be on the top. We work for this – to be on the top in a top level.

“We are enjoying it a lot. For winning you need to enjoy the game. The way we play, you need to enjoy that because if you don’t enjoy that then you cannot play all the games with our intensity. We try to do our best and be happy on the pitch.

“In Brazil we always say that you need to enjoy the game to be happy playing football because football is happiness.

“Of course you need to be serious because you are in a competition of a high level, but you need to enjoy.”

Alisson is correct in regards to the fact that Liverpool should not be settling. This side that Klopp has assembled has the opportunity to dominate club football for much longer, which Alisson and his teammates have identified.

It will be interesting to see how long Liverpool’s dominance lasts. If the club keep things fresh over the next five years or so, anything is possible.
