Klopp: Title race is far from over

English Premier League

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says the fact that his side could win the league if they suffer six defeats before the end of the season makes him want to vomit.

The Reds stretched their unbeaten run in the Premier League to a staggering 40 games with the 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton last night.

It marked their 22nd victory in 23 games during the 2019/20 season, leaving them 16 points ahead of second-placed Manchester City.

And after the game, when Klopp was informed about their seemingly unassailable lead, he reiterated that they will not rest of their laurels due to failures over the past three decades.

"I understand 100 per cent what you talk about but it is over when it is over, not before," he said, as per The Echo. "You can lose six games, I could vomit when I hear that! Let’s carry on.

"When was the pressure higher – last year or this year? I don't think about it. I had to ask him (Liverpool's press officer) exactly about the amount of points (we have), that's the truth. I really forgot it in the week.

"The number of games, I didn't think about it. I know we play Shrewsbury on Sunday, we play Wednesday against West Ham and we play Saturday. That's three games in seven games, that's a lot.

"We lost Sadio Mane tonight, that's what I think about, that's the pressure I have. All the rest is no pressure. I feel the pressure to win games, apart from that, nothing."
