Arsenal’s win over Boro took them to 57 points with two games in hand over Klopp’s men. Should Arsenal win them both, not anything they can bank on, they would be within two points of the Scousers.

“It is the Premier League, they (Arsenal) have three, four, five games in hand so we should not think about this. We could only get to 66 points [on Sunday], so it feels perfect,” Klopp said.

“Next week we try at Anfield to get 69, and let’s carry on. If we do what we have to do, we will be where we want to be.”
