Liverpool will be crowned champions on Thursday night if Manchester City stop working to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp committed their 4-0 demolition of Crystal Palace to the missing fans as his side moved within 2 points of a first league title in 30 years.

Goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold, Mohamed Salah, Fabinho and Sadio Hair finished a thrashing against the visitors in among their best efficiencies of the season– in front of an empty Anfield.

Klopp stated the players had a task to place on a show out of regard for advocates not able to participate in and seeing at home and they appropriately provided.

“I said to the boys ‘I want to see best behind-closed doors football ever’. I’m not sure about the best behind-closed-doors football but it was the best-behind-closed doors counter-pressing ever,” he stated.

” We scored some greatgoals It was just essential we offered this sign and we revealed our advocates the regard they are worthy of: that we can play like they are here even when they are not here.

” Yes they can press us to extraordinary things and I never ever missed them more than tonight– envision if this game had occurred with 55,000 individuals in the arena, that would have been extraordinary?

Back winning under the Anfield lights

” However we can not have that so it was necessary we revealed the regard to individuals. That’s what the kids did and I liked it.

“This night could have been better with people in the stadium, it was an important step for us, a sensational football game and it would have wished for all people to be here so we made their night any way.”

If Manchester City stop working to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge,

Liverpool will be crowned champions on Thursday night.

Klopp will be tuning in however, he firmly insists, just for some tactical insight as City as their next challengers in a week’s time.

“I watch the game tomorrow night not to prepare a celebration but we play City a week later and also Chelsea,” he added.

” This game is an actually essential game to watch for a lot of factors. Whatever occurs tomorrow night we have no impact on it so I have no interest.

“It will happen when it happens.”

Palace were so controlled– they had simply 26 percent possession– they failed to record a single touch in the opposition box against Liverpool, ending up being the first side to do so in a Premier League match because the full stats started being taped in 2008-09

Manager Roy Hodgson, whose side entered into the game on the back of 4 succeeding triumphes with tidy sheets, confessed they were out-fought and out-played all game.

“It was always going to be hard against their pressurising when they play with intensity and power and asking questions,” he stated.

” When we ultimately won it back from them they pressed us so well we could not maintainpossession As a result it was a consistent pressure on the midfield and back players.

“I thought they held out till just before half-time but that second goal was decisive as that put them in the driving seat and a third goal put the game to bed and left us hanging on.”
