English Premier League title holders Liverpool have returned to the top of the league with their slim win over West Ham United at the weekend and this adds to the many reasons why the club and manager should celebrate.

The win against the London club makes the current Liverpool team one of the best that Anfield has ever witnessed because they have now played 63 games in the Premier League without suffering a defeat on their home ground to equal the best record the club has ever known in its history. There are also chances that they will beat the record.

More to this, is the achievements enjoyed by the club for the last seasons under the former Borussia Dortmund boss, winning the Champions League and the English Premier League. They are already on the road to defending the title.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has expressed his delight at the feat so far as he hailed the mentality of the players but he gave the hint that he is not all happy because of the situation surrounding the players.

Jurgen Klopp expresses worry that the Premier League which is believed to be the best league in the world does not have conditions to serve up breath-taking football at present.

“It’s not possible to see us be brilliant at the moment. We just have to dig in, and we did that, and I’m so, so happy” he explained

“It’s an incredibly difficult time – in the outside world, 100 percent, and for the boys as well. Really demanding with the number of games. So we have to find a way to help the boys and to keep a certain quality. That is for everyone, not just us” Klopp explained.

The Reds boss is quite unhappy with the Premier League do not give enough break to ensure that the players rest and get their body ready for games.
