- Match Analysis
Liverpool manager has laughed off Liverpool’s title talks. Liverpool continued their winning run by defeating Crystal Palace 2-0 thanks to goals from James Milner and Sadio Mane.
Following the match, Klopp was asked about his hopes of Liverpool challenging for the title. He replied, “It’s very early. I couldn’t care less and it’s not important. We are not in a race with other Premier League teams each week saying ‘wow, they’ve scored these goals’. I was not 100 per cent sure in the first half we’d score [against Palace] but you have to be a real challenger and that’s what we are each week.
We must be really different to play. We need to be ugly to play, difficult to play and nobody should be happy when Liverpool is coming or when they go to Anfield. That’s our target and then we’ll see what happens at the end of the season. This league is too strong to say anything after two match days!”
Liverpool currently stand second in the table below Manchester City. They next play Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.
