In 12 hours Klopp sets record-breaking Liverpool points target

Klopp Hazard

Jurgen Klopp explains his plan to stop Eden Hazard on Sunday

A 2-0 win over Chelsea restored the Reds' two-point advantage at the top of the table after Manchester City, who have a match in hand, had briefly taken back first place with a win at Crystal Palace earlier in the day. We've played with incredible personality in all the games, including Champions League games.

Klopp insisted his side were only focused on the job ahead of them and were not looking back.

However, more times than not this year, Liverpool have hit that second gear to gain three points. That's 85 points now, so with four games to play that means (we can get) 97. "You could feel it, they are all on their toes, so let's try to do that seven more times and then we see what we get for it". If it's not we can not change it.

"It's all bulls**t. People and idiots bring something like this up".

Coincidentally former captain Gerrard, who is now Rangers manager, visited Liverpool's training ground on Friday.

The incident is said to have occurred after Senegalese striker Sadio Mane put Jurgen Klopp's side 1-0 to the good at Anfield shortly after half-time, with Chelsea supporters said to have subsequently removed the illegal item from the stand on to the pitch. "Robbo (Andy Robertson) slipped and nothing happened, so it's not a Liverpool thing".

The victory over Chelsea was encapsulated in a couple of two-minute episodes in the second half.

When asked if he ever expected Salah to achieve what he has during their tenure as team-mates, Cole told Sky Sports: "To be honest, no".

"We were a little bit unlucky for the timing of the second goal, and then a little bit unlucky because in three minutes we had three goal opportunities - two with Hazard and one with (Gonzalo) Higuain". We've had 183 points in two seasons with five games left. "I was really happy".

Despite his success with Liverpool, Salah is yet to taste silverware with the club, although they went close last season.
