“We go for the three points not the record”

That was the verdict of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp today ahead of his side’s game at West Ham which could see the Reds notch up another record.

The Reds go into the clash with a 25-game unbeaten run in all competitions and with the chance to set another club record if they can leave London without being defeated.

But the Liverpool boss took away any added pressure this may have put on his squad.

When asked about the possible achievement, he said: “We are not really focused on records.”

The German alluded to how important it is for his side to remain concentrated on just trying to get a result out of every game in what he said is “the toughest league in the world”.

With the busy Christmas period in the Premier League on the horizon, Klopp will be desperate to for his team to get back to winning ways in the league.

It follows their 2-2 draw at Anfield against Brighton last Saturday, which put the brakes on Liverpool’s fine league form.

Klopp added: “You have to be nearly perfect to win the league. And this period makes it even harder.”

Three points at the London Stadium for Liverpool will send a statement to the rest of the league and keep them on the heels of leaders Chelsea as the season heads towards fixture congestion.

Kick off at West Ham on Sunday is 4.30pm.
