Jurgen Klopp was playing down any talk of a title challenge, today.
Liverpool face Manchester City at Anfield, on Sunday, in what should be an epic Premier League encounter. However, Klopp was looking to take the pressure off of his men ahead of Sunday’s fixture.
“I don’t think it makes too much sense at the moment to think about the title, but it’s a home game against Man City and it’s tough. Man City is always tough, even when we won 3-0 in the Champions League. In the 4-3 they were really good. Before that, they had 60 games in a row. They never gave up even at 4-1 down.” Klopp told his pre-match press conference.
“We have to be spot on, on our best to keep them away from our goal and create chances in front of our goal. They have my respect, for sure. It will be hard work, no problem with that, everybody knows it.” He added.
City are currently top of the Premier League, ahead of Liverpool on goal difference. Chelsea lie just two points behind City and The Reds. This season already looks like it will have an actual title race with two, if not three, sides confident of lifting that trophy, in May.
