Liverpool coach, Jurgen Klopp has said he will not focus on those saying the Premier League title race is over.
The Reds demolished Leicester City on Boxing Day, as Roberto Firmino netted 2 goals, Trent Alexander-Arnold scored one and James Milner netted from the penalty spot to seal their victory.
The victory gave Liverpool a 13-point advantage over Leicester, even if Manchester City made it 11 points with a win over Wolves on Thursday.
However, despite the gap between first and second, Klopp does not believe it is signed, sealed and delivered for Liverpool as regards the title race.
His words, “I couldn’t be less interested in that [talk that the title race is over] to be honest
“It was a good game. We finished so strong and scored some great goals. We are not listening to any of that. We are focused on our next game only.
“We can still improve… how we manage games, how we defended in the first half. But we can enjoy this amazing win. And tomorrow we start again.”
“I can write the stories myself,”
“Never before in the history of English football has a team had as big a lead and lost the lead. That sounds in my ear negative, so why should we think about something like that?
“We are focused on the next game. We play Wolves, Sheffield United, Everton, Tottenham and Manchester United in our next five games. That doesn’t sound like anything is decided in my ears, to be honest.
“We will try to make sure we are ready for these games. The number of the lead is not relevant to us.”
