Jurgen Klopp spoke to reporters after his side's 2-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday, and singled out four Liverpool players for praise, as quoted by the club's official website.

The Reds now sit two points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, although they have played a game more than Pep Guardiola's relentless side.

 

Liverpool have been mightily impressive to watch this season, especially over the last few weeks where they have not been able to slip up, as the pressure continues to rise.

The Merseyside outfit have just four league games remaining this season, and they will probably have to win all of those if they are to lift their first top flight title since 1990.

Klopp was in buoyant mood after Liverpool's win on Sunday, and praised the efforts of Roberto Firmino, Fabinho, Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk, as quoted by the club's official website:

(THE SUN OUT, THE SUN ON SUNDAY OUT) Roberto Firmino and Fabinho of Liverpool during a training session at Melwood on February 22, 2019 in Liverpool, England.

"I have to say what Bobby, Fabinho and the two centre-halves did against this centre – their two centre-halves, Jorginho and Eden Hazard – was some of the best I ever saw in my life because it is just so difficult."

Next up for Liverpool is their Champions League quarter-final second-leg clash with Porto tomorrow night, before they face Cardiff City away in the Premier League on Sunday, and the outcome of those two games could very well end up defining their season.
