Maybe the Premier League title race is already over - Klopp

Manchester City are in stunning form and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp thinks they are on track for the Premier League title.

LIVERPOOL MANAGER Jurgen Klopp suggested that the Premier League title race could already be over after Manchester City’s electric start to the season.

City beat Burnley 3-0 on Saturday to continue their fine form and extend the gap at the top of the table to five points, with Manchester United suffering a shock 2-1 loss at Huddersfield Town.

Although Liverpool have a game in hand on Pep Guardiola’s men, they go into Sunday’s trip to Tottenham 12 points adrift despite playing just eight matches.

Liverpool’s recent form has left a lot to be desired, having won just one of their last five in the Premier League ahead of the visit to Wembley.

A win for Spurs will take them to within five points of City, meaning they are one of the better placed sides to challenge at the top, but Klopp believes Guardiola’s men are the ones to beat.

“If you ask, ‘Is the race already done?’ City are so strong, flying along at the top of the table,” he said. “Maybe this race is decided already. I haven’t a clue.

“But there is still a lot to get in this league and to play for, especially for us. We have improved as well since last year, that is how it is.

“Perhaps not too much in the results, but in creating moments, chances. A lot of better things than last year, but so far we have not taken the results.

“If we stay convinced about our way and bring in consistency from what we’ve had performance-wise so far, then we can have our best season. That is the next step. We can build on this base.”
