Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said winning the Premier League is his priority after the Reds went top of the table for the first time this year thanks to a 2-0 win over Watford.
Diogo Jota and Fabinho got the goals at Anfield as Klopp’s men moved two points ahead of Man-chester City, who travel to Burnley later on Saturday.
The visit of the Hornets kicked off a huge month for Liverpool as they remain in the hunt for a historic quadruple of trophies.
A potential title decider away to City next weekend falls in between both legs of a Champions League quarter-final against Benfica before another meeting with City in the FA Cup semi-finals.
“The Premier League is the most important competition,” said Klopp, whose side lifted the League Cup in February.
“A big two months (ahead) hopefully.This week can decide a lot about how May will be. “The boys created a top-class basis and now we have to use it.
” Klopp could afford the luxury of leaving Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane on the bench after their exertions on international duty, alongside Trent Alexander-Arnold on his return from injury.—APP
