Liverpool 4-3 Crystal Palace: Klopp Hails 'Important' 60-Point Milestone
Liverpool manager has hailed his side’s 4-3 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday that took them to 60 point and firmed their spot at the top of the English Premier League table.
Only defending champions Manchester City (2017-18) and Chelsea (2005-06) have amassed more Premier League points than the Reds after 23 games.
"The result is massive. We have 60 points now, it's crazy," Klopp said after Saturday's thriller at Anfield.
"I am really proud."
"It's a massive relief," Klopp added. "We knew for different reasons the game would be difficult. They are really good at counter-attacks and set-pieces.
"Wilfried Zaha is a world-class player and he gets into a one-on-one situation and we're one down.
"We had to stay positive. Being one down is not a massive blow - we just needed to win the second half and did what we had to do. We got lucky for 3-2 and with all the set-pieces they're still a threat, so it stayed interesting until the end."
Second-placed Manchester City can reduce Liverpool's lead at the top when they travel to bottom side Huddersfield Town on Sunday.
