Premier League title race; Jurgen Klopp believes the title race is far from over even if his side beat Manchester City.
Even if Liverpool defeats Manchester City in their crucial match on Sunday, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp feels the Premier League title race will not be settled.
Klopp’s team sit a point behind City with a five-goal edge ahead of Sunday’s meeting at the Etihad, having won nine league matches in a straight since January 16.
Despite the fact that a lot is riding on the outcome of the game, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp does not believe it is a title decider.
“If we win against City, which is already difficult enough, I think no one would think, ‘That’s it, decided,’ because of the quality of the opponent,” Klopp said after his side’s 3-1 Champions League victory over Benfica.
“We play now against the best team in the world, but we will give it a try anyway. What we did in the last few months since the season started, we created a basis.
“We are in the quarter-final, the semi-final (of the FA Cup) and the further you go, the harder it gets.”
Pep Guardiola’s team also won 1-0 at home against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
Each team will have seven Premier League games remaining after Sunday’s match. On April 16, City and Liverpool will also meet in the FA Cup semi-final.
Should City beat Atletico Madrid and the winner of Chelsea vs Real Madrid, and Liverpool defeat Benfica and the winner of Villarreal vs Bayern Munich, they might meet in the Champions League final.
