Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool Need 105 Points To Win Premier League

We know we are in a good moment. We started off with a plan and I thought we started well.

The Reds sit top of the Premier League, four points behind Manchester City as they embark on the festive period.

Asked if it was realistic to expect Chelsea to end Sarri's first season as champions, David Luiz replied: "Yes, I think so but with humility, with our feet on the ground, thinking step by step".

"The first half was better, the second half was unusual as it felt like they nullified us without us even knowing".

"It's not my first Premier League [season] so I know anything can happen". "We need to look at it and get better".

It proved to be the final action of the match as Liverpool ensured top spot at Christmas - a position from which nine of the last 10 occupants have gone on to win the title from.

Why blind Liverpool fan has become a viral hit
Virgil van Dijk believes his challenge on Dries Mertens early in Liverpool's 1-0 win over Napoli on Tuesday was a fair tackle. As such, his cousin, who is a Liverpool fan took up the duty to explain the moment to Kearny in a heartwarming fashion.

Liverpool have dropped just six points so far this season, but Klopp says his side can not afford to start getting carried away.

Liverpool's title challenge has been built on a rock-solid defence which has been breached only seven times in the League so far this season with Van Dijk outstanding.

After the game with Wolves, Klopp hailed Van Dijk for his assured display and claimed that he thinks he is an even better player than he thought. We need to continue on that.

Palace, though, did end City's run of 18 consecutive league wins on December 31 last season with a 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park, and might have won had goalkeeper Ederson not saved an injury-time penalty from Luka Milivojevic. We do discuss things. "It was a good game, a deserved win", Klopp submitted.

Only twice in the past 10 years has the leader on Christmas Day failed to win the title, but the bad news for Liverpool is that on those two occasions, in 2008-09 and 2013-14, it was the Reds who were unable to see it through and finish on top.

Van Dijk has been a key member of Klopp's side and has scored one goal and made one assist in 18 Premier League games so far this term. The former Southampton star has been a colossus since arriving at the club back in January and he added to his legend on Friday night with a goal against Wolves.
