Liverpool dropped two points last weekend as the Merseyside was held to a goalless draw by Southampton. A result that saw them drop from the top of the table. A point behind leaders Chelsea and Klopp has warned his players to stay focused and not get too excited about their title chances.

He said: “If somebody wants to celebrate position one in November, then he will not play in December any more because I see it pretty quick.

“These things usually don’t happen. The players are here in this situation because their character is really good

“They have come a long way to get here. It is not like they are surprised about success, whether it is individual or as a team.

“They had successes of being the best player at Southampton, Schalke or other teams.

“This is success but if you then celebrate this and don’t be professional any more, then you have a problem.”

Klopp had this to say as he knows what it takes to win a title, having been successful at Dortmund.

He arrived in October last year and has been working hard to stamp his identity of hard running, pressing and counter attacking football. Which has seen the Reds firing all cylinders this season as oppositions grow weary of the treat they pose.

Liverpool have not won a league title since 1990 and are looking to be successful this term after coming close in recent years.
