They have continued their dominant form following their Champions League victory over Tottenham in the final last season, and Klopp believes that triumph has helped instill a never-say-die attitude.
Klopp told Sky Sports: ‘The Champions League final [against Tottenham] helped a lot to know we are able to [keep winning].
‘I said after, it was the worst final I played with a team but we won! We learned in that season to do the right things again and again.
‘It’s a long time ago but we had to work on that – consistency, staying in the game, using different situations.’
Liverpool edged out the Hammers on Monday having been 2-1 behind with just under 30 minutes remaining.

However, they kept up their unbeaten season as Mohamed Salah equalised before Sadio Mane netted the winner in the 81st minute.
Klopp added: ‘The set-pieces brought us back tonight. Getting the momentum back again – because we had a couple after each other. There were so many things we could do better but to reach this number of games, you cannot be brilliant all the time.
‘We just try to make the best of what we have. I am pleased with the attitude we showed. We lost a little bit of patience in the first half with what we did offensively.
‘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 that’s what we did tonight.’
