Liverpool’s boss reiterated his belief that the destiny of the Premier League crown may not be decided until the final day of the season.
And while Klopp was disappointed Manchester United could not do them a favour on Wednesday, he is relishing the chance to load pressure back on City by beating Huddersfield at Anfield on Friday night.
“It is over when it is over and not before and for us it is not over,” said Klopp.
“We do what we have to do as good as we can do and we will see.
“There is always hope until the last whistle of the last game.”
Like Pep Guardiola, who has told his side to not read papers or watch television during the final three games, Klopp insisted Liverpool’s dressing room will shut out extraneous noise.
Moreover, he said he has no time for anyone letting doubt creep in.
“If someone doesn’t believe any more then I can’t change that now,” he said. “But if they still believe then welcome to my club. I am completely fine.

Is Burnley a place that I would love to have now on the schedule for us? No, honestly not.
“There is only one opinion that is important and that is our opinion inside the dressing room.
“There are so many examples in life where if you give up too early what that could mean where people wouldn’t have survived. You don’t have to use these examples we know about them.
“But they [the players] believe what I say and that is cool.”

And if they can bag three points that will load pressure on City ahead of a tricky trip to Burnley on Sunday.
“It gives us the chance to change again the lead for a couple of hours and hopefully that will happen,” he said. “Is Burnley a place that I would love to have now on the schedule for us? No, honestly not.
“It is not a place where you think: ‘Oh nice. We are going to Burnley. Easy points.’ It is a tough place to go and they have good momentum, they won an impressive game and they are used to that style of play.
“They have got 40 points now and that is good. I just want to play these three games and see what we get.”

The Liverpool boss added: “I would love to get 97 points really I would.
“Incredibly difficult to get them but if we get them we have played an outstanding season and whoever wants to say whatever about us, I couldn’t care less.
“It is a little bit like destiny. If someone wants us to be champions we will be champions, if not we will not.”
