Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he is relaxed about Manchester City’s positive results that have heaped pressure on Liverpool FC in the title race.
The 18-time English champions were 5-0 winners against Watford at Anfield on Wednesday night thanks to goals from Sadio Mane, Divock Origi and Virgil van Dijk.
Manchester City struggled to get going against West Ham but Sergio Aguero netted a second-half winner from the penalty spot to seal three points.
The defending champions have won their last four Premier League games to put Liverpool FC under pressure.
Speaking at his post-match media conference about whether Manchester City’s victories are a cause for concern, Klopp said:
“I only heard it was 1-0, that’s what I heard. I don’t think you need an answer from me, we only think about what we can do. We have to play football and win games then we will see what happens.
“It is not I go in the dressing room and someone tells me the [Man City] result and I have a heart attack. It is just a normal thing if you are top of the table it is pretty likely the contenders all win.
“That’s the only advantage you have when you fight for staying in the league because the other teams lose a bit more often than in our fight. I didn’t think about it, but it is what I expected.”
