Liverpool have started planning a Premier League title parade after 30-year wait

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side have brushed away all competition in the Premier League this season to forge a 16-point lead at the top of the table with a game in hand after 22 wins from 23 fixtures.

The Reds have failed to win a league title in almost 30 years since their First Division triumph back in 1990, but the manager and players have refused to talk about their chances of lifting the title at the end of the season.

However, it now seems as if staff behind the scenes believe that their lead is too big to surrender, with plans for a parade already underway.

According to The Athletic, Anfield officials are secretly discussing dates and locations for a victory lap of honour around the city, but they won’t admit that in public.

After the recent 2-0 victory at home to Manchester United, Liverpool fans begun to sing that they were going to win the title despite their drought of three decades.

Even though Jamie Carragher was spotted mouthing the words, Klopp remained coy over whether his side now have the major trophy in the bag.

“They can sing whatever they want,” he told talkSPORT. “I am not here to dictate what they sing.

“If our fans were not in a good mood now that would be really strange.

“But we are here to work. It is as simple as that. It is a very positive atmosphere but I have to stay concentrated.

“We play on Thursday against Wolves. I am only interested in that game and nothing else.

“Of course they are allowed to dream and sing whatever they want and, as long as they do their job in the moment we play, all fine. But we will not be part of that party yet.”

The Reds went on to beat Wolves 2-1 to give them a bigger advantage over their rivals, but they do now face another game on the schedule after throwing away a 2-0 lead against Shrewsbury in the FA Cup on Sunday.

That game, that will take place on February 4 or February 5, means Liverpool’s mid-season break will be cut short – leaving Klopp annoyed.

"I said to the boys already two weeks ago that we will have a winter break, which means we will not be there," he said.

"You cannot deal with us like nobody cares about it. I know that it's not very popular but that's the way I see it.

"The Premier League asked us to respect the winter break. That's what we do. If the FA doesn't respect that, then we cannot change it. We will not be there."
