Jurgen Klopp unhappy with Aston Villa’s situation ahead of the crunch Manchester City clash in the EPL game.
Jurgen Klopp admits it’s ‘unlikely’ that his Liverpool team will be crowned Premier League champions this weekend, and he has expressed his displeasure with Aston Villa’s short turnaround in fixtures leading up to the Reds’ title-deciding clash with Manchester City on the final day.
By preventing Manchester City from winning at the Etihad on Sunday afternoon, Aston Villa can give Liverpool a big chance to win their second Premier League trophy.
Liverpool would have to defeat Wolves and hope that Villa can upset Pep Guardiola’s club.
Following their match against Burnley at Villa Park on Thursday evening, Villa will enter the final day with only two days of recovery.
And Klopp believes that Liverpool’s chances of winning the Premier League are slim.
Jurgen Klopp unhappy
Klopp was asked about the possibility of winning the league this weekend after Liverpool’s 2-1 win at Southampton and said: “Of course, it is unlikely because City plays at home against Aston Villa, who play only on Thursday. It will be tough against Burnley, they fight for survival.
“But it is football. I think the time when City became champion [in 2019] it was because of 11 millimetres. If someone wants us to be champion then we have to win first and Aston Villa needs to get a point at City. It is possible, not likely but possible. That is enough.”
