Soccer – Klopp: Winning is crucial

Jurgen Klopp says his Liverpool side simply have to keep on winning if they are to edge out reigning champions Manchester City in the battle for Premier League success. The Reds moved two points clear at the top of the table with a hard-fought 2-1 at Fulham on Sunday, with James Milner converting a late penalty to secure a crucial three-point return. Afterwards, head coach Klopp accepted his team had not been at their fluent best, but he was keen to stress the importance of continuing to put wins on the board. The German told reporters: "I think we fully deserved to win the game. It was an average game, massive result. We want to stay in the title race and that's what we did. "First is the best position you can be in. City don't look as if they drop a lot of points, so we have to win, to win and to win." Klopp's men are 2/1 with bet365 to be crowned Premier League champions this season.
