They have continued their dominant form after their Champions League victory over Tottenham in the final last season, and Klopp believes that triumph has contributed to an unstoppable stance.
Klopp told Sky Sports: “The final of the Champions League [against Tottenham] helped a lot to know that we can [keep winning].
“I said afterwards, it was the worst final I played with a team, but we won! We learned in that season to do the right things over and over again.
“It was a long time ago, but we had to work on it – consistency, staying in play, using different situations.”
Liverpool defeated the Hammers on Monday with a 2-1 deficit with just under 30 minutes.

However, they maintained their unbeaten season when Mohamed Salah tied the score before Sadio Mane delivered the winner in the 81st minute.
Klopp added: ‘The set pieces brought us back tonight. Getting the momentum back – because we had a couple in succession. There were so many things we could do better, but to achieve this number of games, you can’t always be brilliant.
“We’re just trying to make the best of what we have. I am happy with the attitude we have shown. We lost a little patience in the first half with what we did offensive.
“We wanted it a little too much, but we were forced to stay calm. The best goal we scored didn’t count, but sometimes you have to squeeze it and we did it tonight. “
