Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said on Saturday that destiny will decide if Liverpool are to be Premier League champions after his side beat Newcastle United 3-2 to keep the pressure on Manchester City.
Divock Origi’s header at an 86th-minute free kick glanced off the top of Newcastle defender Jamaal Lascelles’ head and into the net as Liverpool collected an eighth consecutive league win, which put the team on 94 points, two clear of Manchester City.
That points total would have won the Premier League in all but two seasons since its inaugural year in 1992-93.
“I accepted long ago that we do everything, absolutely everything. The boys throw whatever they have on the pitch. So that means we’ll be champions or not it’s destiny,” the German boss said.
