Jurgen Klopp got the victory over Southampton to leave the title race drama till the last day of the Premier League.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has opened up on the weekend drama on the last game of the Premier League.

The Reds came back from a goal down against Southampton to win 2-1 away from home last night.

Liverpool reduced the points between themselves and Manchester City to a point and leave the title race till the final day.

Speaking about the last match in the Premier League Klopp said: “The only way I can see it is like if I would be in the other situation then I don’t feel like I am champion already. So, that’s how it is. Of course, from my point of view now again second if City wins that game, but it’s football. We have to first win our game, it’s not like we talk about Wolves as if they would not be there. That’s difficult enough. Imagine that.

“We go there and have one ear in Manchester, it’s not too far away, and then Wolves… Jimenez, bam. Hwang, whatever, heading the balls in. So, we will be 100 per cent focused but last time it was that close, City won it because, let me say, 11 inches. Ball in, not in, stuff like this. So many things happen during this second part of the season. I think if we would become champions it would be deserved as well but for that we have to win and then we have to see.”

Liverpool will host Wolves in the last day of the Premier League while Manchester City will host former Liverpool captain team Aston Villa.

When asked whether Klopp will speak to Steven Gerrard ahead of the game he said: “No, of course not. Stevie prepares now for Burnley. Burnley are fighting for everything, so that already will be hard enough. It is their last home game for Villa, so they will play that game, collect the bones and then go again on Sunday. So, no, there is no reason to talk to him. We all know Villa wants to win because Villa wants to win. That’s it.”
