The Reds left it late to collect three points at Turf Moor, with Ragnar Klavan helping to lift the New Year’s Day mood with an historic stoppage-time header.
Even without that intervention, Klopp was on course to hit a new high with the Reds.
Avoiding defeat at the Premier League’s surprise package means that Liverpool have now gone 16 games in all competitions without coming unstuck.
Liverpool’s last defeat came way back on October 22.
A 4-1 drubbing at the hands of Tottenham saw uncomfortable questions asked of Klopp and his side, and the perfect response has been offered.
Their 16-game unbeaten run has included 11 wins and five draws.
