Jurgen Klopp wants Liverpool to rack up 97 points this season in their bid to win the Premier League title in May.

The Reds are currently two points ahead of Manchester City at the top of the table, though the champions do have a game in hand.

Klopp, however, just wants his side to focus on what they can achieve in their own campaign.

“The biggest challenge for us is always facing the world outside, [the media] and other people. We play our game,” he said.

“If City lost and we find out five minutes before the game that’s not a help. You lose your focus then.

“We only try to collect as many points as possible. What is it now, 85? Four games to play. 97 [possible]. Let’s try.

“And if that’s enough, then perfect. If not, we cannot change it. And we didn’t lose it here or there or whatever.

“We see it game by game. We go to Porto now [in the Champions League], which will be a tough one.

“We know that they get at least two players back, Pepe and [Hector] Herrera, so they will be an interesting and difficult challenge.

“Then we play Cardiff and everybody knows that is a tough place to go.”
