Liverpool manager Klopp: Points record not important

Jurgen Klopp insists he doesn't care about Liverpool breaking Manchester City's points record.

The Reds are now eight behind City's Premier League landmark of 100 after Wednesday's 3-1 win over Brighton.

With four games remaining, Klopp says he wants his players to forget the record and focus on winning matches.

He said: "It's not important for me, I'm not interested in any of this but I want to win football games. For sports people in general it might be important. We are champions and it could be softening but it is not - the boys go with everything.

"We now have 92 points and last season we had 97! We got five points more than this last season - that's unbelievable, I have no idea how we did that."
