Jürgen Klopp's side will become champions of England for the first time in 29 years if they win their game against Wolves and Manchester City fail to win their final game of the season away at Brighton.
"It is on, but you have to be realistic", he told Sky Sports. Nobody gave us a hope going into the game but the prize at the end of it all was so big for us, as players, that something just lifted us. That's why they are where they are in the table. We have the chance to be champions if we win our game and that's what we have to do.
"We've shown many things but now is not the moment to say how well we've done".
Having been knocked out of the Champions League by Spurs in dramatic fashion in their quarter-final in midweek, all eyes were on City to see if they could hold their nerve on the domestic front.
"That's the standard that City sets for all of us in the league".
"The top two can't be split - they've both been outstanding". With the caveat that reported transfer fees are often tough to be 100 percent accurate, City assembled theirs for a total of £422.4m, while Liverpool's set them back £289.8million, almost half of which - £141.8m - went on Alisson and Virgil van Dijk, also featuring two free transfers (Joel Matip and James Milner), an academy product (Trent Alexander-Arnold) and two players purchased from relegated sides (Andrew Robertson and Georginio Wijnaldum).
As part of his pre-match duties, barring a guard of honour, he will have to shake hands with City skipper Kompany Manager Chris Hughton believes it is a fitting farewell: 'I see a lot of parallels.
"We are going to travel to Brighton, and we don't need to look at any other situation".
The 27-year-old is keen to have a say on the title race - although he is not planning to emulate his fellow defender's strike: 'I won't be doing that!
These two sides have more or less been playing a different sport than the rest of the division this season, and will finish at least 20 points ahead of their nearest challengers.
