Liverpool will not let up once league title is secured, warns Jurgen Klopp

The Reds are on the verge of a first top flight title in 30 years and hold a 25-point lead over second-placed Manchester City

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists his team will not let up once they have secured the Premier League title.

The Reds are on the verge of a first top flight title in 30 years and hold a 25-point lead over second-placed Manchester City with just nine games of the season remaining.

The Premier League has been halted since March due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the season is schedule to return this month.

Liverpool can secure the title with a win against Everton in their first match back if City lose to Arsenal when the league restarts on June 17.

"It's nice to think about it but we are not champions yet and we know that," Klopp told the BBC. "We know we're close but close is not there. There are 27 points left for us and we will try everything to take them all.

"We don't want to stop winning after two games."

The league was suspended on March 13, with teams returning to training in small groups before voting last week to return to contact training.

"I have missed it so much it's unbelievable," Klopp said. "I know it's not the most important thing in life but it is my passion. I hope the people are looking forward to it because we are."
