The latest reports have revealed that Jurgen Klopp wants his current Liverpool side to imitate Manchester City in order to remain at the top of the Premier League table.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool is currently sitting at the top of the Premier League table at the moment after 17 games and have notched up 45 points till now. Having won 14 and drawn three games, the Reds are yet to be beaten in England’s top flight but Manchester City is still just one point behind the leaders.
The Merseyside outfit can establish a four-point lead at the top of the table if they beat Wolverhampton Wanderers on Friday until Manchester City play their game. However, Klopp is aware that his Liverpool side needs to keep up the momentum and not lose focus at any stage of the season if the Reds are to stand any chance of staying at the top of the table at May.
Klopp addressed the quality of Manchester City’s squad and Pep Guardiola as the reigning champions won the Premier League title last term with a record 100 points.
While speaking to the Guardian, the German boss stated that he cannot pinpoint any weaknesses in the Manchester City squad, “I have to respect that City are really, really, really good. I can’t say that City are lucky here and lucky there. They aren’t. Every match day they are spot on. They were last year when they got 100 points and they stay in that mode. Chapeau. I have to say it, there’s no sign of weakness”
Klopp went on to state that because Manchester City achieved their phenomenal feat last season, Liverpool should be able to emulate it as well, “They are the current champions and they still play like champions. We are all the challengers. That’s why we should concentrate on every game and not take any result for granted. We are all judged on that because they are the champions, they can do it, so it should be possible for us as well.”
Liverpool has to focus on each game and take every match seriously. Klopp has done a tremendous job so far to pip Manchester City in the Premier League but the Reds have to maintain that level for the remainder of the season.
