Calm Klopp remains grounded
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is refusing to get carried away even after Saturday's impressive 2-0 victory against Tottenham.
The Reds had tumbled down the Premier League table after failing to win a top-flight match in January but returned to form in style by brushing aside a strangely off-colour Spurs side at Anfield.
A first-half brace from Sadio Mane decided the match as Klopp's team moved up to fourth in the table.
Liverpool can now be backed at 4/9 to clinch a top-four finish this season while they are available at 4/6 to beat Leicester City in their next Premier League match on 27th February.
Klopp has laughed off suggestions that his side can catch Chelsea though, saying: "What would you think about me if I would say now that I think we can [catch] them? Really ambitious or crazy?
"Maybe you can imagine that I'm not too interested in this in the moment because the only possibility to win something is to win football games and we started 2017 - if you want - tonight.
"We should not go nuts immediately and talk about all the rest. Let's take it step by step.
"We'll try everything to get as many points as we can get from the season and then we count and see what it was worth."
