This Premier League season has been more competitive than any season in recent history with three clubs pushing ahead of the rest for a real shot at the trophy. Liverpool have largely been in a contest with Manchester City but Tottenham Hotspur are coming up close in third position. Spurs have picked up the pace as the season’s worn on and Mauricio Pochettino has been picking up wins now even without Harry Kane in the side.

Jürgen Klopp looks ahead to a dramatic finish to the season with plenty of games left to play until the final whistle. The manager is confident in his team’s ability to dominate the league and vows to do all he and the players can do to win it. But just remember that two other teams are also playing amazing football right now and the long road to the finish is likely to be fraught with emotions.

“We are convinced about the way we want to play but you cannot get a guarantee,” said Klopp.

“I’m sorry for that, but especially in that league you cannot get a guarantee. Man City doesn’t have a guarantee in this moment, Tottenham doesn’t have a guarantee but a big opportunity like us and City as well.

“So these three teams will fight for the title, that’s how it is, and I don’t know who will be there at the end.

”But it will be a team who plays the rest of the season with a lot of confidence, with an outstanding high work-rate, with a lot of passion, full of desire, all that stuff. Who plays really front-footed and tries to win, not tries to avoid losing.

“And if all three are doing that, then we have to respect that as well and see how the results work. But we will fight for it with all we have.”

The run-in is setting up to be an outstandingly terrible time. After the Champions League tie against Bayern Munich, the Reds will get back into the title race with an away match against Manchester United. It would be a classy statement of intent to make at Old Trafford if Liverpool were to win and reassert their determination to win the title.
