Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has spoken about the biggest challenge he faces in the title race.
“We don’t think about the title race. The biggest challenge for us is probably constantly facing questions about it,” the German revealed at Friday’s press conference.
“Apart from that it is a completely normal season. We’ve never made it the season where we have to, it is just the season we are in.
“We try to get as many points as we can, the challenge we face is the 26 teams we have to play.
“The next one is Crystal Palace. It is a challenge everybody knows that so we don’t need any others.”
Speaking on Palace, Klopp added: “The home games for them are special because there’s a really nice atmosphere there. They make it difficult it is a special place to go.
“They had not the most spectacular transfer window in the summer, but working longer together can improve squads – especially with an experienced manager like Roy Hodgson.
“They had a really good start and now it’s…yeah. But with the opponents they had it was not that clear like some would imagine. They made it tough for everyone.”
