The Reds boss says they will ‘go for eveything’ to prevent City from winning the title.

Liverpool ended their three-match unbeaten run by defeating Brentford 3-0 on Sunday. Fabinho opened the scoring with a header just before the interval. However, the Reds continued their attacks, scoring two more goals through Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Takumi Minamino in the second half.

The victory sent Liverpool to second place as they leapfrogged an out-of-form Chelsea. They are now 11 points behind Manchester City, who seem to be on their way to secure back-to-back Premier League titles.

However, Jurgen Klopp refuses to admit the title race is over, saying his side will do their best to stop the Citizens.

 “If you are with us, you will enjoy the ride and we will go for everything,” the Liverpool manager said (via Daily Express).

“We are ready to go as much as we can. This is not the situation to talk about a title fight, it’s 11 points now with one game in hand.

“In a normal world nothing happens anymore but what is normal nowadays? We try to do our part, there is nothing else to do.”

Andy Robertson, who registered an assist against Brentford, was also asked about the title race.

He said: “Man City are a fantastic team – one of the best in Premier League history,

“We have closed a bit, but we have to concentrate on winning games. The gap is too big to be looking at for the moment.”

Liverpool will face Crystal Palace in their next league game on Sunday. The Reds will then host Cardiff City in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
