Jurgen Klopp has laughed off suggestions that ​Liverpool are now certain to win the Premier League following Thursday's triumph over ​Wolves.

A late strike from Roberto Firmino secured a 2-1 win at Molineux, leading the Reds to 22 wins from 23 league games this season and stretched their lead at the top of the ​Premier League table to 16 points with a game in hand.

The Reds are well on course to end their 30-year wait to be crowned champions of England, but Klopp was in no mood to answer questions on the perceived certainty of Liverpool's tilt.

In a press conference at Liverpool's Melwood base, Klopp's first question came from a reporter who began to laugh before getting out his words.

“You know already before you ask, that’s a sh*t question. Yet you still ask," ​Klopp responded.

"I have never heard that word before. I have no clue what it means. What is inevitable? Ah, it’s going to happen? We couldn’t care less. As far as I’m concerned we are not even mathematically qualified for the Champions League yet.

"The only thing we can do is focus on the next game. Whatever you say about us, if it’s positive then thank you very much, and if it’s negative, I don’t care! I cannot change the situation; I never heard that anything is decided before it’s decided so why should we think about these things?"

Liverpool face Shrewsbury in the FA Cup this weekend before taking on ​West Ham in what represents their game-in-hand atop the Premier League.
