Jurgen Klopp isn’t counting his chickens despite the increasing belief among Liverpool fans that they’re going to win their first Premier League title.

The Reds won their game their game in hand over Manchester City, beating West Ham 2-0 at the London Stadium, to further extend their lead to 19 points at the top of the table.

Just as they had done in Liverpool’s win over Manchester United, the fans chanted “we’re going to win the league” but the German coach doesn’t agree just yet.

Eight more wins would guarantee Liverpool their first league title in 30 years, and their first of the Premier League era.

Klopp insisted he’s still determined to maintain the same standards and keeping his players focused on the task at hand.

Goals from Mohamed Salah and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain gave Liverpool a fairly routine victory over David Moyes’ Hammers, keeping their seventh clean sheet in their last eight Premier League games.

“They can sing whatever they want. Singing it doesn’t mean you are it,” responded Klopp, when asked about the chant after the match.

“We don’t feel like it is already done. I promise.

“I’m only happy about the three points. We could have done a lot of things better. We could have passed better and defended better.

“These boys have played outstanding football throughout the season. Tonight was a normal performance.”
