Liverpool's Mohamed Salah in action with Wolverhampton Wanderers' Conor Coady

Mohamed Salah scored one goal and made another as Liverpool won 2-0 at Wolves to guarantee they will be top of the Premier League on Christmas Day.

"Being completely neutral about it, I look at it and say, 'Yes, the team to beat are obviously City, '" Klopp said.

Every game seems to have lost its individual significance - winning a Merseyside Derby, beating your greatest rivals, taking on a team that has claimed four points against Chelsea and City at home this season - because they have all become must-win fixtures in what could be a title battle for the ages. But Klopp still believes that his dynamic attack still needs some more firepower if Liverpool is to win trophies in the near future.

"So far it looks like a really special season, 48 points before Christmas is insane", Klopp said.

"At the end of season you need 105 [points] to be champion - it could be".

"But was it ever such a tight race?"

'We know we are good.

"It was clear that the whole game would be hard", Klopp said to BBC Sport after Salah starred at a wet Molineux.

Eight of the last nine sides top at Christmas have gone on to win the title, but the exception was Liverpool in 2013-14.

"Both goals really were nothing to do with what we did in the game".

"The best thing to do to stay in charge of the game is to keep the ball".

"It was a good game".

Unsurprisingly, it was last season's top scorer and player of the season whop provided the opening goal at Molineux.

Insigne has also remained loyal to Napoli since 2009 but with his game being taken to the next level, the Italian forward may look to move away from Italy in order to win more titles in his career. We may have to think about other options like three at the back with two midfielders or stuff like that. We need to continue on that. When I saw the Southampton v Arsenal line-ups I saw Arsenal are already in a situation where they have to make these changes.

"But last week against Manchester United he was fantastic.What I liked about him was sometimes you see a defensive midfield player and they play horizontally, the shuffle across horizontally, they pass horizontally". Virgil and Alisson have made a big difference but the whole team have been important'.
