The Merseyside club caught the attention of many observers with their 6-1 thumping of Southampton in their League Cup quarterfinal clash on Wednesday night.

However, Klopp is adamant that any talk of Liverpool winning the Premier League this campaign is premature.

“I don’t think about this,” Klopp said of the Reds prospects of a title run.

“People can talk about this but we just have to play football.

“We don’t have any ideas yet about where we can get to – it’s a fantastic football club and everyone here loves working at this club and everything is really good.

“But you need to have luck with injuries to be challenging, so we can’t get carried away and look too far forward – we are only in sixth place.

“That is all we look at and that is what football is all about. We know we can get better, and we know there is still a long way to go.”
