Jurgen Klopp insists the number of points Liverpool have is more important than returning to the top of the Premier League. The Reds remain unbeaten in the top-flight this season and went three points clear of title rivals Manchester City, who face fellow high-flyers Tottenham at Wembley on Monday, following a 4-1 win over Cardiff.

Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs are all two points behind City so Klopp was delighted to put some breathing room between themselves and the chasing pack.
“The number of points makes a massive difference,” the Reds boss said after the game. “The difference between 23 and 26 feels like 20 points, but it is only three.
“It is really important to stay on track, we will all need each other. It is unbelievable that five or six clubs have such a big number of points.
“It makes it even more intense, good for the people and for the supporters of all different clubs.”
