PV Sports Desk :  Mohamed Salah kept Liverpool on track to set a new Premier League points record as the champions won 3-1 at Brighton, while Manchester City bounced back to form with a five-goal rout of Newcastle on Wednesday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are hoping to break the 100-point record established by Manchester City in 2018 and they remain on course after securing their first away win since February.

Liverpool have 92 points and need nine more from their remaining four games against Burnley, Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle to clinch the new record.

Asked about the record chase, Klopp said: “It’s not important for me. I’m not interested in any of this but I want to win football games.

“For sports people in general it might be important. We are champions and it could be softening but it is not. The boys go with everything.”

Liverpool have reached 30 wins in a season faster than any other in English league history and Klopp added: “We now have 92 points and last season we had 97!

“That’s unbelievable, I have no idea how we did that.”
