Jurgen Klopp says his Liverpool team needed”fortune” to beat Tottenham, but their”appetite and attitude” has been forcing his Premier League title bidding.
Liverpool making the effort to secure their first topflight title for 2-9 decades.
“We vie with Man City; let’s two better teams right now, and we take on them,” Klopp said.
“I told the boys after the game: You can find 500,000 strategies to acquire a football game and today was rather ugly.
“But without a bit of chance, you cannot be in the position we are in. We’re top of this table.
“If we have been there at the close of the growing season it will be down to will, attitude and desire.”
Reigning Premier League champions City will recover top spot should they defeat strugglers Cardiff at Etihad Stadium on Wednesday (19:45 BST).
Pep Guardiola’s side became the first team in English topflight history to reach 100 points when they won the league in 201819.
Nevertheless Klopp’s negative are breaking new ground having a current tally of 7-9 points from 3 2 fixtures, eclipsing that the 76 they’d in 1987-88, when they went onto secure their 17th of 18 topflight names.
“If we are top of this table after the last game day, it’d be considered a championship of will,” said Klopp, who resisted the response of the Anfield crowd to Lucas Moura’s equalising goal to be crucial for his team.
“two weeks ago, we started and wished to go for the highest stakes in just two contests. We did it our way. For the points we have now, we work extremely hard.
“It’s is not important when you score however exactly what it’s on the scoresheet afterwards. Momentum is not a coincidence, it’s something which that you take, you retain and you use.
“We get used to situations, bit by little. The entire arena… it had been the ideal operation of a Liverpool crowd after an equaliser since I have arrived.”
