Jurgen Klopp has laughed off talk of his Liverpool squad being under pressure from holding a nine-point lead over reigning champions Manchester City.

The Reds had a convincing 3-1 win over City at Anfield, an emotional day for the club as Meath native Sean Cox, who suffered horrific injuries in an attack at their game against Roma last year, attended the game and greeted Klopp.

"It was really important news when we heard he was able to go to the stadium and watch a football game," Klopp said of Cox.

His side went on to take a major step towards the league title with the win.

"We don't feel the pressure, to be 100 per cent honest. Where is the pressure?" he said.

"There is a long way to go and lose here a point, lose there a point and stuff like this, it will probably happen. Other people 100 per cent said already from now on Liverpool can only lose it but that's a very negative approach.

"You can see it like this, but we don't care. I promise you we don't care. We were completely focused on this game and not the situation in the table.

"It was all good, and all around these three goals it was hard work, and so the boys deserved these three points."
