Speaking to Liverpool’s website ahead of their trip to Southampton on Saturday afternoon, Molby issued his backing for Klopp’s side Reds side in the title race.

“It’s a long way to go and we know it will be extremely competitive right until the end of the season,” Molby said. “Good managers get the best from their players and that’s what Klopp has managed to do.

“I don’t think it’s something that is about to change and I think we have set standards now and we will continue to get close to that level right until the end of the season.”

Liverpool finished in eighth place in the Premier League table last season after Klopp was appointed as Brendan Rodgers’ successor in October 2015.
