Jürgen Klopp has set Liverpool a mammoth points target and hailed the Anfield atmosphere, report the Liverpool Echo.
The Reds performed when the pressure was on once again, beating Chelsea 2-0 thanks to early second half goals from Sadio Mane and Mo Salah.
With that, the Liverpool manager set his side a 97 point target in their bid to clinch the Premier League title.
Klopp said: “We only try to collect as many points as possible. What is it now, 85? Four games to play. 97. Let’s try.
“Very smart people will come out and say ‘yeah, if you would have won against Leicester you would be champions’.”
The German added: “I’m so proud of what the boys did today. I loved, loved, loved the atmosphere, it was outstanding.
“Let us try and do that seven more times and see what we get for it.”
This has long been Klopp’s mentality as he continues to train his focus solely on the job at hand.
He has consistently reiterated his point that he doesn’t care what Manchester City are doing and wants his team to keep winning.
This message is clearly being received by his players, as Liverpool picked up another three points in the title race.
And when Chelsea put them under severe pressure, Klopp’s men held their nerve and weathered the storm.
It was another example of Liverpool’s tenacity and intent as they overcame their toughest remaining challenge in the title race.
With City winning 3-1 at Crystal Palace earlier on in the day, there was potentially more pressure on Liverpool.
But the players did not let this show and produced a thoroughly professional display and deserved another three points.
It’s a mentality that the Reds will continue to adopt as they go in hunt of a domestic and European double.
