Jurgen Klopp has talked about Premier League title run-in in the build-up to Liverpool’s Sunday showdown against Chelsea, urging everyone in love with the Reds to give their contribution to the ultimate cause
With five league fixtures left to go, the Merseysiders top the table with a two-point lead over the reigning holders although Pep Guardiola’s men still have one game in hand.
Presumably, the match that can determine Liverpool’s faith in this contest takes place on Sunday afternoon, as an improving Chelsa arrive at Anfield.
Speaking of the Premier League title race, the German tactician has compared it to 400m race, saying that the Reds and the Citizens just entered the final 100m.
“If you take a 400m race, it’s like after 100m they are all together, after 200m there are a few together, at 300m two are together, and in the last 100m you go with all you have,” Klopp explained to the official Liverpool website.

“If you take a 400-metre race, the runners are all together. After 200m, there are a few less together. At 300m, two runners are together and in the last 100m you go with all you have.”https://t.co/LXn4liEGFk
“We are in that moment of the season. It’s about using all your body, using each fiber of your body. We want to control games in a very positive football way. We have to play like adults.
“I am only interested in this Chelsea game. Not because it’s Chelsea, but because it’s the one this weekend. The opponent is so strong and in a good moment.
“What I really want to ask for is that all of us are in a real fighting mood, all at Anfield and whoever is in front of the television, in a proper aggressive, positive, fighting mood. Go for whatever we can go for.”
