Jurgen Klopp has said that Barcelona are not in his thoughts as the title run in closes down.

“Can you imagine, I didn’t think a second about Barca before right now,” Klopp told Sky Sports. “I saw them in my life about 100 times, but I didn’t think a second about them.

“We start now, we have five days before that game, it’s enough to rest, enough to train, enough to recover.

“So many teams have tried to win there and didn’t. It’s not likely to happen for us, but it is possible. We will have a plan for sure, but not right at the moment.”

“I don’t know if it will be Burnley, Leicester City or Brighton or any of them,” Klopp said when asked if he thought City may drop points in the run-in.

“I don’t even know what will happen at Newcastle, to be honest. If somebody should be champions they will be champions, if not then they will not.”

“We have to do our job, win the games and see what happens. The talk is normal, but it doesn’t really bother us, 91 points is just incredible.

“It’s special so far, the boys have done everything they had to do to have a chance.

“All over it was brilliant, a really good performance, everything that we need was there. Really happy. A perfect day, nearly. We won this game in a really impressive manner.”
