Former Liverpool midfielder Terry McDermott claims that the Reds are in the strongest position for this season's title race, despite their draw with West Ham on Monday.
Klopp's side are only three points clear of Manchester City having succumbed to successive draws against Leicester and West Ham in the past week. Last year's champions now have the chance to go ahead of Liverpool if they beat Everton on Wednesday, but the Reds will have a game in hand.
McDermott had his say on this year's title race when speaking to Love Sport Radio. He said:
"I know we’re all disappointed because one minute we’re looking at seven points in front and then all of a sudden it’s gone down, but City might lose. Then we’ve got a game in hand on them and if we win that, it’s six points.

The former Liverpool midfielder also reminded fans not to rule out Tottenham, who are just five points off Liverpool after their draw on Monday. McDermott added: "
McDermott also commented on Liverpool's minor blip, in which they have drawn two games they perhaps should have won.

“Man City have had their little blip and it’s only a little blip at Liverpool. There’s still a long way to go and if they start playing the way they have been then they’ll take some catching.”
