"We don't have to reset the situation, or summarise the season". Much to Liverpool's dismay, Pep Guardiola's side are now one point ahead and have three fairly routine fixtures left in Burnley (away), Leicester City (home) and Brighton & Hove Albion (away).
City won the league in that fashion in 2011/12, pipping United, whose tally of 89 points was the record number of points won without winning the title until this season.
But for Klopp, it remains a vital opportunity, as he urges his players to fight until the final day and supporters to keep faith, telling those who do that they are "welcome to my club". "This will be the last game I overthink anything", Klopp said.
Liverpool know a thing or two about that. "The club and the people are waiting for a long time for it".
It has never been easier to watch live Premier League action on the move thanks to the Sky Sports app.
"I say right now, to maintain that level now after what we've done, I'd sign for that".
'We've helped Liverpool to achieve that and they have helped us.
Treble-chasing Barca host Liverpool in the Champions League semi-final first leg on Wednesday.
"Also, against Crystal Palace, we should have said "let's play calmly, we're 3-0 up and Manchester City have to play in midweek", but we had that anxiety".
Barcelona will win La Liga with three games to spare if they beat Levante on Saturday, but manager Ernesto Valverde has ruled out resting players. At this point, Huddersfield are officially relegated, and the best they can strive for is the role of spoiler. Manchester United tried whatever they can but over 90 minutes it was clear they couldn't withstand City. For others it is really hard, like intense, to separate it, but for us it was not a problem.
Klopp said he agreed with Guardiola that both teams deserved to win the Premier League but that there could be just one champion. That is what we have to do again and then we will see.
