Joe Gomez has urged Liverpool to maintain their incredibly high standards so that they dominate football for years to come.
Liverpool have coasted towards this season’s Premier League title and are on course to break Manchester City‘s record of 100 points in one campaign, winning 30 of their 34 matches so far.
Jurgen Klopp‘s side have clinched four major honours in the space of just over a year, starting with last season’s Champions League before winning the UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and this season’s Premier League.

‘We are far from the finished article and we’ve got a young, hungry squad that hopefully can keep on learning.’
