Liverpool earned a 3-0 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening.
Diogo Jota scored a brace and Mohammed Salah added the other goal to give Liverpool the maximum points.
The Reds took advantage of West Brom’s victory over Chelsea and Leicester City’s loss against Manchester City to go two points adrift of Chelsea.
Klopp has revealed that the victory was an important statement as they battle for a place in the Uefa Champions League slot.
“It was a very important statement. In our position it is clear, everything that has happened to us this season means we don’t have it in our hands,” he added.
Liverpool will battle it out with Real Madrid in the Uefa Champions League on Tuesday.
