“Special” and “incredible” was how Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp described his team’s astonishing pursuit of the English Premier League title as the league leader equaled a record the German “never thought was possible.”
In battling back to beat West Ham 3-2 at Anfield, Liverpool matched Manchester City’s EPL record of 18 consecutive victories, set in 2017.
Klopp’s side has now not dropped a point in the EPL since drawing 1-1 with Manchester United in October last year and could achieve an unprecedented 19th straight win at Watford on Saturday.
“It’s so special. The numbers are incredible, so difficult. We are just in the situation and want to recover and prepare for the next game,” Klopp said after the match.
“The next opponent is really waiting and wants to fight us, the whole stadium at Watford will go for us, that’s completely normal. There will be a special atmosphere and we have to be 100% ready.”
