Title Race: Jurgen Klopp Gives Honest Opinion On Man City EPL Matches

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed what he expects from Manchester City ahead of another title race which might be a three-horse race this time. Liverpool sit at the top of the Premier League table with five points above the Cityzens, although Pep Guardiola’s side have two games in hand.

One of the games will be played on Monday night against Brentford and Jurgen Klopp is not expecting any result than a win for the Sky Blues. He said they always expect City to win their games, therefore, there may be no need to watch them play.

Speaking after his side were defeated 3-1 by Arsenal, Klopp insisted that winning games is the only way to remain at the top of the table.

“Look, if you want to find a specialist who becomes champion in England then I am probably not the right person to ask because most of the time we finished second, so I’m sorry to say that. You have to win football games, I know that, and as many as you can.

“But, as I said, if you can only become champions and we don’t lose any game, that makes life really tricky. Since the final whistle, I didn’t think a second about the amount of games of Manchester City and who they will play, and how they will play. Not for a second.

“We have to play to our potential. We have to deal with difficulties in the game, around the games, and play our soul on the pitch if you want, and then we will see where it ends up. But there is no guarantee for nothing,” he said.

According to Jurgen Klopp, Manchester City are such a team that could turn things around within minutes even when they were losing, stating that Liverpool would have preferred to win at Emirate Stadium but the contrary was the result.

“I didn’t become nervous now because of two games in hand for City. We always expect City to win all of the games, to be 100 per cent honest, we don’t even have to watch them – even when they are 1-0 down and then it’s 3-1 or whatever, it’s always like this.

“It’s all fine. For us, nothing really changed. We would have loved to win here, got a point or whatever – actually we wanted to win here.”
