Jurgen Klopp reveals how many points Liverpool will need to win the Premier League

Jurgen Klopp believes the Premier League title win could be close as both Manchester City and Chelsea lost points, while Liverpool had a 2-0 win at Molineux on Friday night.

Liverpool have now won seven Premier League games in succession and will top the table at Christmas but he fears it will take a record points haul to finish the season above their rivals.

“So far it looks like a really special season, 48 points before Christmas is crazy,” the Liverpool manager told Sky Sports. ‘But there are other teams. Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham, Arsenal, will probably win, so then they have 40-something points, nobody is dropping points down to fifth or sixth.

“You will probably need 105 to be champions at the end of the season, you don’t know. We know we are good and are in a good moment but we have to respect the others are good so we can’t start a party or plan a party for the summer now. For the moment it’s really nice and now we have to make sure we have fresh legs as quick as possible and get ready for Newcastle.”
