The slight blemish on the victory was the injury to Mane, but Klopp remained hopeful after the match.

“It was very average that he had to go off,” Klopp said.

“But hopefully it’s not too difficult or too bad. But we will see tomorrow.”

Firmino’s strike saw Liverpool reach 40 league games unbeaten across this season and last and gave them their 22nd win from 23 games. Their 16 point-lead over is a staggering advantage at this point of the season, but Klopp remained cool about any talk of the title.
