Liverpool sit top of the Premier League, six points clear of Tottenham and seven points clear of Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp’s side did their job on Boxing Day, beating Newcastle 4-0 at Anfield.

Meanwhile, Spurs also won comfortably - thrashing Bournemouth 5-0 at Wembley.

That win lifted them into second after Manchester City lost their third Premier League game in their previous four - losing 2-1 to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

The title-race is well and truly on.

A clear sign of that is fans keeping track of rival club’s scores while they’re at the game.

And Liverpool fans certainly did that on Wednesday.

A cheer erupted around Anfield when Leicester took an 81st-minute lead against City.

However, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp claimed he had no idea what it meant.

"I thought it was for us. I thought 'that's nice,' but then I was told afterwards it was for a different result. Obviously nobody told our crowd that Tottenham won 5-0,” he said.

But when Liverpool had finished off their business, Anfield stadium announcer, George Sephton, had the pleasure of reading out the other Premier League results.

And he saved the Leicester vs Man City one until the end.

When he revealed that the Foxes had won 2-1, a massive cheer went around the stadium from the thousands of fans that had stayed behind the hear that result.

It was a brilliant moment.

Take a look:

Was that the moment Liverpool fans truly believed they could win the title this season?

Liverpool may have gone six points clear at the top of the league but Klopp is trying not to think about it.

"It means nothing. It's important how many points we have, not the others, because what is six points? It's nothing. We have to play them still, they are all strong, we have to play all of them again,” Klopp said.

"The first part of the season is over, and the second starts again in three days against Arsenal. It's a tough season, but so far a good season for us. We just have to keep on going."
