Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, expects the title race this season to “go to the wire”.
The Reds travel to Southampton on Monday following draws against Newcastle and West Brom.
And Klopp said: “I am pretty sure because it will go to the wire probably but it is tough for all of us which is the reason why it is so close.
“If you are neutral, you will love it!
“Last season was very tough for us as well and it was not as though we thought ‘oh my god this is easy’.

“This year is tough again. I am not surprised it is that close.
“We have our situation and all the other clubs have their situation and our season is so far so good. Not more. Not less.
“We try to be ready for each game. Now Southampton will ask for different things. Then Aston Villa. Then Man United. This season is a tough one for the supporters.”
