Liverpool presently with their form this season, are among top contenders of the premier league trophy. They’ve never lost in four of their premier league matches.

Ahead of their clash today, Saturday 18th of September, Klopp the club’s manager has warned against wasting any given opportunity to pick up a point so as to progress in their hunt for the trophy this season.

They’ve recorded a massive deal against Crystal Palace side, won their last eight games against Crystal Palace, scoring 24 and conceding just five times.

“I am not too much in the other teams’ situations, but it’s a good start for us,” Klopp told reporters at Friday’s news conference.

“We have played some good football but if you want to be around the top spots you have to and you cannot waste points. That’s how it is. We just have to keep going.”

He further provided injury updates on Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk, while saying “If you like we’re still in extended pre-season for him [Virgil van Dijk],” he continued. “I don’t want to talk about injuries, but Ibou [Konate], Joe [Gomez], Joel [Matip] all have had injuries. Now we just make sure we have a proper pair on the pitch

“I cannot help people who don’t see the quality of Joel. He was unlucky with injuries. He’s tall and it can look a bit edgy but he’s always been incredible for us. We need his quality, we have four or five top-class centre-backs and that is good and necessary.”

On Mohamed Salah’s contract extension, the Red’s boss said “There’s nothing to say, especially from me, I am not involved,”

“Obviously I am interested in how sharp he [Mohamed Salah] looks. He’s spot on, really good. Nothing else to say.” he concluded.
