Klopp sets his sights on Liverpool club-record 97 point total

The Brazilian goalkeeper equalled the record - also held by former Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart - after preventing Chelsea from scoring during Liverpool's 2-0 win over the Blues on Sunday at Anfield.

Liverpool star Mo Salah scored possibly the goal of the season yesterday in the crucial 2-0 win over Chelsea.

"But I am really happy with the performance because we stayed in the match very well".

The race for the Premier League title looks to be going right down to the wire, with Liverpool and City not showing any signs that they are going to ease up.

"At this point, we can finally close the slipping book - Robbo slipped and nothing happened, so it's not a Liverpool thing", Klopp said. It was a really, really outstanding finish.

Victory allowed Liverpool to reassert a two-point advantage at the top of the Premier League ahead of Manchester City, who still have a game in hand, and enabled Klopp's side to pass another test in their quest to be champions.

"The biggest challenge for us is always facing the world outside - you [journalists] and other people - because we don't think like that", he added.

After the second goal - a shocking goal in a good way for them, but not for us - we reacted. We play our game. You lose your focus then.

After the loss, Chelsea are now fourth on the table with 66 points from 34 games and they have now played one game more than their top-four rivals.

"Good, let's try. Let's try that".

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri was forced into a change, introducing Gonzalo Higuain and moving Eden Hazard from a false nine role into his usual position on the left, which brought immediate results.

"Liverpool are one of the great teams in Europe at this moment, but we stayed in the match until the end".
