“Now, as you can imagine, I have Everton fans phoning me up saying: ‘The season has to be cancelled!’

“And, of course, as an Evertonian and someone who played for Manchester United for 13 years, there’s a bit in me that thinks that would be good…

“But no. Liverpool have been fantastic. They have put so much work in. They deserve this title.

Can you imagine waiting 30 years and then having it taken away like this? The right decision has been made.”

Liverpool have been exceptional in the Premier League season leading the table with 82 points, 25 points above Manchester City in second place.

They have failed to pick all three points in only two of their total 29 epl games, drawing against Manchester United in October 2019 and a surprise 3-0 defeat against Watford.

The defeat deny the Reds from matching Arsenal’s Invincible record for going the 2003-2004 Premier League season unbeaten.

Klopp has already talked about not bothering by Liverpool’s failure to break Arsenal unbeaten record in the league. When asked if he cared that Liverpool could no longer emulate Arsenal’s Invincibles of 2004, or indeed match or better their 49-game unbeaten run in the league, Klopp said: “Not really, because I don’t think you can break records because you want to break records. You break records because you are 100% focused on each step.

“It was clear that at some time we would lose a game. We didn’t wait for it but it was clear that it would happen. Tonight it happened. I see it rather positive. Because from now on we can play free football again. We don’t have to defend or try to get the record we just can try to win football games again.”
