Jurgen Klopp admits his Liverpool side are surprising him after they extended their winning streak in the Premier League.


The Reds beat Southampton 4-0 to seal 100 points from the last 102 points as they marched forth to their first title in 30 years.


Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain broke the deadlock two minutes into the second half and Jordan Henderson doubled the lead in the 60th minute before Mohamed Salah scored a brace to wrap up the win over the Saints.

“I have never seen it,” Klopp said of Liverpool’s consistency. “But it is not that I am feeling stronger and stronger and stronger after each win. It is just one celebration, sometimes more, sometimes less, then relief, settle and go again.”


The German added: “They [Southampton] were incredibly difficult opponents to play. They were not here to be part of any party. They wanted to hurt us, to beat us.



“The attitude and the mentality of the boys made it possible we could win this game. It looked not only tricky – Southampton are too good to be a banana skin – but it looked today it would probably happen.

“I am a very optimistic person but not before a football game. Today Southampton had too many shots and finishes but what (Alisson) is doing, I have no clue. The finishes were good but Ali is there.


“We are not perfect, not even close. We don’t care about being perfect. We just try and use our skills in the best possible way. The boys do that and that is why we have these kind of numbers. It just feels like hard work.”


Klopp's Reds now need only seven more wins to secure their first domestic title since 1990.
