Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has stated that his team need to stay focused in order to clinch the 2019-20 Premier League title.

The Reds defeated arch-rivals Manchester United 2-0 at Anfield in the Premier League yesterday thanks to goals from Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah.

Liverpool possess a 16-point lead at the top of the table with a game in hand. It is likely that Liverpool will claim a maiden Premier League title, which is giving the Anfield faithful plenty to sing about, but Klopp is not getting too carried away as of yet.

“They can sing whatever they want. If our fans wouldn’t be in a good mood now it would be really strange,” Klopp told the media regarding the celebrations after the victory against Manchester United.

“They are allowed to dream, to sing whatever they want as long as they do their job as well in the moment when we play.

“We will not be part of that party yet, but it’s no problem. We know our job.

“We are here to work, as simple as that. It’s a very positive atmosphere, but I have to keep myself in and stay concentrated in interviews as we play on Thursday against Wolves.

“That’s the truth. I’m only interested in that game and nothing else.”

This is why Klopp has the success he wants. He is always able to stay in the moment when everyone else around him is struggling to contain their excitement.

However, he will know deep down that his team are on the verge of greatness. They simply just need to keep doing what they are currently doing.

Liverpool’s next Premier League clash is against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium come Thursday night.
