Jurgen Klopp laughs off Liverpool Premier League title talk

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp reacted with bemusement after being asked if the club can win the Premier League title this season after their 3-1 victory at Chelsea.

Philippe Coutinho scored twice and substitute Christian Benteke was also on target as Liverpool came from behind to heap more pressure on Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

But the win was Liverpool's first in the Premier League since Sept. 26, and their first away from home since the opening day of the season at Stoke City.

"Are you crazy? You think after one win at Chelsea we should think about this?" Klopp said in his postmatch news conference. "I've been here three weeks, round about.

"We don't think about this. We have to think about the next game, about improving our game and our style. We can do much better than today.

"We had our moments -- our build-up with short passes was very good. They tried to make pressure but we could play in the spaces in between.

"I feel [the win] is deserved. We have worked hard but it's normal if you want to win in Chelsea."

Midfielder Lucas praised the performance of referee Mark Clattenburg after escaping a second yellow card for a trip in the second half at Stamford Bridge.

Clattenburg gave Lucas the benefit of the doubt with the score at 1-1 and Liverpool went on to take the points.

"They [Chelsea] will probably talk about it, it's normal especially when you lose a game," Lucas told Liverpool TV. "Sometimes in my position you make fouls, more to stop the game. I think it was a good decision from the referee, he controlled the game very well.

"Other situations as well with the Chelsea players he dealt [with] really well. I think it was a fair game. People will say this could change this game. In the end we were the better team and we just need now to enjoy it, recover and then go again."

Liverpool next play Rubin Kazan in the Europa League on Thursday and then Crystal Palace next Sunday, with Lucas looking to make it four straight wins prior to the international break.

He added: "It was a massive win for us. After a few draws we needed these three points and hopefully the next two games, the Europa League and the Premier League, we get good momentum before the international break."
