Jurgen Klopp has urged his Liverpool players to have some fun in the remaining months of the Premier League title race.

Liverpool played out a 1-1 draw with current leaders Chelsea at Anfield on Tuesday night to leave the 18-time English champions in fourth place and 10 points adrift of the Blues with 15 games to play.

Brazil international David Luiz broke the deadlock in the first half with a swerving free-kick before Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum levelled in the second half.

Liverpool could have been subjected to a fourth successive defeat in all competitions if Diego Costa had managed to dispatch his penalty but Simon Mignolet stopped the centre-forward’s effort.

Speaking at his post-match media conference after Liverpool’s 1-1 stalemate with Chelsea, Klopp had a message for his players ahead of the remainder of their Premier League campaign.

“Stay cool, that’s a season, a football season, we’ve worked really hard. As long as this club keeps the nerve and [then with] what kind of power we can create, it’s outstanding,” Klopp said.

“Let’s stay cool and have a little bit of fun when you think about Liverpool and look ahead and, yes, nothing has been decided until now, but we have a chance. So, go for it and then if not, then it’s 14 games, 42 points – go for it. There’s a lot to get for us and we will see where it ends.”
