Jurgen Klopp says the result of the Manchester United game won’t decide the outcome of the title race
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says that the outcome of their game against Manchester United won’t be decisive in the title run-in.
The Reds will play 11 league games after the one at Old Trafford, and are currently second in the table on goal difference, having a game in hand, which they will play today.
They take on a resurgent United, who are yet to lose in the league under the management of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Asked about whether the outcome of this game will have deep implications, Klopp replied:
“The problem is never to play these game for the boys, it is all the talk around them.
“We try as much as possible to stay focused on ourselves and what we really can influence. And in the end, people are only nervous because in the end, people always want guarantees as early as possible.
“And nobody can give that. The moment it feels a little bit as though City have the advantage because it is City, Tottenham have an advantage because they are chasing from behind and we have to play United.
“That is how people see it. But in the end, absolutely no decision will be made this weekend or next weekend. That is what we created, a basis to fight for the league title until the very end.”
After playing United, Liverpool have a home game against Watford three days later.
