There is no chance to rest, however, as Newcastle head to Merseyside on Boxing Day for another must-win game.
And speaking at Melwood on Monday morning, Klopp gave his thoughts on Liverpool’s next opponent.
“I don’t know too much about Newcastle, from time to time I read a little bit,” he explained.
“Nobody was really happy with the amount of money they had to sign players, but Rafa is too experienced to carry that for a full season.
“Meanwhile they are really settled, in a good moment result-wise. It was always difficult to play against them.
“It will be a tough job. The most important thing for us, especially when you win the last game, [is keeping focus].
“The Wolves game was a big challenge for us, [after] playing against United, before then Napoli.
“From the big stages then to Wolverhampton, your focus could drop, but I saw in the attitude: stay angry, stay greedy, stay in the job.
“And that’s what we have to do against Newcastle again.”
He discussed the landscape of the title race, too, but dismissed suggestions the pressure was now on City and stressed that they are not the only two sides vying for pole position.
“We did really well so far, now we have to do even better. As you can see, other teams are doing well also,” he said.
“Only in this moment it looks quite positive but we have to make sure it stays this way.”
Liverpool will training at Melwood on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, before joining their families for the afternoon and then back to their usual routine of staying in a hotel in the city centre to prepare.
