Liverpool chairman Tom Werner has warned club boss Jurgen Klopp and his players that the job is not fully done and that the Premier League is still to be won. The Reds currently lead the Premier League charts with an incredible 22 points margin with second-placed Manchester City and other rivals floundering.
The Anfield based team looks certain to be crowned champions come to the end of the season for the first time in the Premier League era.
But Werner insists there is still a lot of work to do, and while he is excited by the progress that the team has made, yet he is keen to keep his foot to stay on the ground as much as possible.
“I am pinching myself, but we haven’t done the job yet,” said Werner.
“I keep saying to everyone I talk to that we really need to savour this because I appreciate the record we have achieved so far and I don’t think it is going to come along quickly [again].”
Liverpool have won 24 of 25 games, drawing with Manchester United in their only slip so far.
Although they have scored five fewer goals than current title holders City, they have conceded 14 fewer goals and could be crowned champions as early as March.
However, the chairman is unsure whether Liverpool will go the whole season unbeaten given the competitive edge in England.
Liverpool have another 13 games to get through to become the new invincibles.
“The level of competition in this league is so great eventually you think you are going to have an off day,” said Werner.
“But that hasn’t happened yet, which is a great compliment to Jurgen because obviously, the team is playing at peak talent every week.
“As Jurgen said, we haven’t done the job. We haven’t accomplished anything yet. There will be time to enjoy this even more at the end of the season.”
Liverpool were subject to criticism this week for missing the FA Cup fourth round replay with Shrewsbury, due to the Premier League’s winter break.
Klopp and his players, minus James Milner, stayed away from Anfield as Neil Critchley led a young side into the fifth round.
