Jurgen Klopp talks up his Liverpool players after impressive win over Chelsea

Winning put Klopp's side back on top of Manchester City in the title race, after Pep Guardiola's side had beaten Crystal Palace earlier in the day, with the defending champions still having a game in hand.

The German said: "What we want to do is collect as many points as possible".

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has equalled David de Gea's single season Premier League clean sheet record of 18, and still has four games left in the season to top it.

Liverpool can not do much more than they're now doing to put the pressure on Manchester City in this exceptionally hotly-contested fight for the Premier League title.

"Let's try that and if that's enough, perfect".

"And if that's enough, then ideal". And we didn't lose it here or there or whatever.

"But they are such a hard side to play against".

"It's all bulls**t. People and idiots bring something like this up".

The pace trio of Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah have also been included in the squad. The 12th edition of the World Cup, to be hosted by England and Wales, begins on the 30th of next month.

The victory over Chelsea was encapsulated in a couple of two-minute episodes in the second half.

The ball broke loose to Jordan Henderson, whose cross was headed home by Sadio Mane six minutes after the restart.

"We were a little bit unlucky for the timing of the second goal, and then a little bit unlucky because in three minutes we had three goal opportunities - two with Hazard and one with (Gonzalo) Higuain".

Liverpool star Mo Salah scored possibly the goal of the season yesterday in the crucial 2-0 win over Chelsea.

"The performance was really good but to really make it happen you need the goals and we got them, all good".

"We stayed in the match where three months ago we wouldn't have been able to do that".

"Liverpool are one of the great teams in Europe at this moment, but we stayed in the match until the end".
