Jurgen Klopp said everything “clicked” for his Liverpool side in their record-breaking 7-0 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday.
The result was their biggest ever away win in the top flight and it marked Klopp’s 127th Premier League victory as Reds boss, overtaking Rafael Benitez’s 126 in charge of the Merseyside club.
The champions were in devastating form against Roy Hodgson’s men, powering to victory thanks to braces from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah and further goals from Takumi Minamino, Sadio Mane and Jordan Henderson.
Liverpool’s dominant win stretched their lead at the summit to six points, although Tottenham could reduce that back to three with a win over Leicester City on Sunday.
While Klopp was impressed with his side’s performance, he refused to get carried away and said their focus would soon switch to taking on West Brom next Sunday.
“It was hard work and there was a lot of counter-attacking from Crystal Palace in the first half where we needed a toe or a foot to defend,” he told BT Sport.
