LEAGUE WON Sunderland attract third biggest attendance in English football in stunning turnout
The German claims he did not even know City were playing – let alone that they were losing 2-1 to Leicester when a roar went up at Anfield.
And Klopp has challenged his pace-setters to keep their title dreams alive to clinch their first league title since the 1989-90 season, but warned that he expects it to go down to the wire.
When quizzed about his side wiping out City’s superior goal difference, Klopp said: “That means nothing.
"We play Arsenal and City. I had no idea how any other teams were playing, I didn’t even know where they were playing.
“Afterwards I got the results and I can say it didn’t do a lot for me. It is just information.
“It’s good that we have six points than other teams, or seven, but that is pretty much all.”
He added: “We play City soon – if I was them I would think there is only four points because we still have to play them, then we play Arsenal before then as well.
“The only thing that matters to us is the performance and keeping that level of performance. It’s good but that’s all.
“Tottenham are flying – they had a difficult summer but they are doing brilliant.
“We are on a good run as well. Chelsea will win, Arsenal will win, it will be a race until the final day.
“But we are in it and that’s important. We’re just creating a basis for the rest of the season and the basis after the first part of the season is obviously a good one.”
MARK HALSEY'S VIEW
MO SALAH should face a two-match ban if the simulation panel are consistent.
Newcastle defender Paul Dummett does put his hand on Salah’s arm, but the Liverpool forward does not need to go to ground in that manner and it is an act of simulation.
Oumar Niasse and Manuel Lanzini were given two-game suspensions for ‘deception of a match official’ last season.
Salah has gone to ground just as easily as they did and could easily face the same punishment.
The authorities need to act quickly because incidents like this are happening too often in the best league in the world.
