Klopp reckons ‘solid’ Leicester can make the top four

Jurgen Klopp believes ‘solid’ Leicester are capable of breaking into the Premier League’s top four this season.

The in-form Foxes have begun the new season in impressive fashion, losing just once in their opening seven league fixtures to sit third in the division.

Leicester City‘s form has seen them being discussed as potential gatecrashers of the European places, and Brendan Rodgers’ side will face the sternest examination of their credentials so far with a trip to face league leaders Liverpool this weekend.

Liverpool boss Klopp has been impressed with this weekend’s opponent’s flying start to the new campaign, and believes they possess the qualities to secure Champions League football.

Asked if the East Midlands outfit can make the top four of the Premier League, Klopp said: “It looks like that 100 percent.

“There is no difference to other top six teams apart from maybe the name.

“You can see that it is built from the back. The goalie is still there, there is no doubts about him.

“The defence is really solid in each position, midfield creative and hardworking, offensively very creative and straight forward. That is how you build a team.”
