This is turning into the most gripping of title races and history offers mixed messages for Jürgen Klopp’s leaders

“If you want to do the headline, ‘Klopp says you need 105 points to be champions’, do it,” insisted Liverpool’s manager after Friday’s victory over Wolves. “What is really different, because everybody asks me about the situation, first in the table and all that stuff, somebody said that the last four times the team that was first in the table at Christmas won the league, but was it ever such a tight race?”

Well, yes, actually Jürgen. But perhaps not quite as potentially gripping as this one. After Manchester City’s surprise defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday left Liverpool four points clear at the top of the Premier League, Tottenham’s 6-2 thrashing of Everton the next day ensured three teams reached the 40-point mark before any presents have been opened for only the second time in top-flight history. Had Chelsea managed to find a way past Leicester’s stubborn defence it would have been four in what is becoming the most absorbing battle for many years. The top three combined have accumulated more points at this stage of the season than ever before.
