Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is adamant they will be title challengers over the long-term.
Even though Liverpool have now won just one of their last eight matches, the manager explained that he has seen enough this season to believe they will threaten the sides at the summit of the league.
Klopp said: “We have to do whatever is necessary and we will be challenges. We will be challengers for the next few years, no problem.
“We showed big heart, we were brave. I thought we were smart in doing the right thing at the right moment but in the end, it didn’t work out.
“I am not overly-positive, I am not crazy but I really see we are still good, and that is what I try to push. People around the stadium today saw a game they wanted to see — but they all had Liverpool shirts on.”
