Jurgen Klopp: Thrilled to be top

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp talked down his side’s chances of winning the Premier League despite moving top with a 6-1 win over Watford.

The Reds climbed to Premier League table for the first time since May 2014 thank to their annihilation of the Hornets at Anfield.

Sadio Mane (2), Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, Emre Can and Georginio Wijnaldum all got on the scoresheet as Klopp’s men routed the sorry Hornets.

Daryl Janmaat pulled one back with his first goal for Watford but the visitors were well beaten at Anfield.

Speaking about his side’s league position, Klopp told Sky Sports: “It’s better than being 10th, or whatever. It’s very important to collect the points for the finish and for the final third of the season.

“We’ve started already collecting points but we need to go on with this and then we will see where we can end.

“I’m really not interested (in talking about the title). For me it’s more important that we look like a team who is able to win football games.

“On a good day, we are really difficult to play and that’s the most important thing we can say.

“It’s not important in this moment where we can end. I know in the past a lot of things happened here and the story two, three years ago when it was really close and everybody compares but this is not the team two, three years ago, this is not the team 25 years ago, we’re completely new.”
