Liverpool on verge of becoming earliest champions in Premier League history

Liverpool on verge of becoming earliest champions in Premier League history”

'Our targets are to win the remaining competitions and qualify for the Champions League next season'.

They set another top-flight record by finishing Saturday 22 points ahead of second-placed Manchester City, the biggest gap in history at the end of a day.

The Toffees are now just four points behind from Tottenham, who sit fifth in the Premier League table, and Everton boss Ancelotti has reaffirmed his belief that the club can get back onto the continental stage by the end of the campaign. It is just one great celebration, then it's relief, settle and go again.

After Madrid, looking around they were all sad again, but the Champions League previous year was a healing moment for me.

"The boys have done that now for a while, pretty good and that's why we have this kind of numbers".

"But it doesn't feel a second like it's really special". We just don't feel it.

The numbers tell of a team in uncharted territory, though.

An unfortunate journalist tried to point that fact out to Klopp but instead suggested that the Anfield club had taken 100 points from 102 games - form that would have the Champions League holders in relegation trouble.

Meanwhile Liverpool, Manchester City, Leicester, Chelsea, Tottenham and Sheffield United, the current top six in the Premier League, are all still in the FA Cup as the tournament enters the fifth round, and should one of those clubs win the cup, seventh place in the Premier League will also be awarded a Europa League spot. So, yeah, they are heavily favored to win their next six games.

Klopp is, however, not fussed over his team's statistical Everests.

"I promise you I don't lie: we don't feel it". It's clear that conversations are important because we can't let things go on like this.
