- Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool must continue to win games to guarantee Premier League triumph
- The Reds come back from one goal down to beat West Ham 3-2 at Anfield this week
- Klopp insists they cannot afford to slip up against Man City like they did last term
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has insisted that his side are home and dry in their quest to win the Premier League title this campaign.
The Reds fought back from one goal down to beat West Ham United 3-2 at Anfield on Monday night as they restore their 22 points gap over Manchester City after 27 matches.
Klopp's men came close to winning the silverware last season but allowed it to slip off their grip after finishing just one point behind eventual winners.
However, with 11 matches to wrap up this term, the German-born tactician feels they must not relent on their title push.
Klopp added that Man City are willing to drop points, hence, the need for them to continue grinding out results regardless of the opposition.

"You see City playing and this is the team in world football that are able to win all their other games. We have to keep winning," Klopp told Sky Sports.
Meanwhile, the former Borussia Dortmund credits hard work for the Reds' superb display this season. They are a few matches away from equaling Arsenal's 49-match unbeaten record.
"Whatever will happen this season is an effort of all of us. I could not be more thankful or appreciate the support we get. So far so good," he noted.
The Merseyside outfit on the other hand risks crashing out of the Champions League at the round of 16 stage.

It would be recalled that they defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the final in June 2019 to clinch the UEFA elite title for the first time in over a decade.
