Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool will continue digging and not celebrate their current runaway leadership status in the 2019/2020 Premier League season even as The Reds’ first league title in 19 years beckons.
Liverpool have scorched a red trail with a 13-point lead at the summit of the Premier League table after matchday-20 with them having an outstanding fixture against West Ham.
The Reds defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0 at Anfield on Sunday to make it 18 wins and one draw from 19 games so far in the current season.
The Sunday’s victory was also Liverpool’s 17th consecutive home win in the Premier League this term which extended their overall unbeaten run at the Merseyside to 50 games.
Klopp says that the fans are emulating the team by being humble even as they fight on staying in pole position towards winning their first Premier League title since 1990.
“I think our fans are exactly like the team is./They are not interested in the moment. They don’t want to celebrate now. They take it like
it is,” Klopp told reporters after Sunday’s win against Wolves.
“They dig in a game, like today. Today, l liked it a lot. All the fans were really in the game. This was a game where the crowd can
be nervous, they weren’t, so that’s good.”
Klopp added: “We are a unit so we fight until somebody says ‘it’s enough’ and ‘you have enough points’ or not. We will see. But it’s not about belief. If we were not confident it would be really crazy but it’s not about knowing, or wanting to know, that it’s already done.
“Imagine, really, if you asked me and I sat here and said ‘yeah, actually, I think it’s done’. But we still play of course but I think it’s done. That would be really crazy.
“But, since five, six or seven weeks ago we are still asking that question constantly. And, as a normal human being, have the same answer. Because it’s not done. So discuss it if you want, ask me if you want, but don’t expect a different answer.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
