Jurgen Klopp has bluntly admitted that he doesn’t know how to win the Premier League, because he’s never done it before!
Fair enough, we suppose.
Liverpool are currently joint top with Manchester City and Arsenal, but Klopp is refusing to get ahead of himself and rightly so.
“I have no idea, it’s my first proper season in the Premier League,” the boss told the Echo. “I have no idea what to do to win the Premier League.
“But I’m really sure it was never decided at the end of October. We feel good at the moment, that’s all.
“I cannot even find anything negative. I cannot stand here and say ‘yes but he has to put a finger in’ because as a person I’m completely different, I don’t expect perfect, perfect games.
“I like it, we win 5-0 one time, even then you can stand here and say you’re happy in this moment. Unfortunately, I’m not like this. We know we have to improve and develop, but it’s all good, 4-2 – if you ask me before the game, I buy it, after the game, I still buy it. All good.”
Klopp also spoke about next week, when Liverpool host Watford at Anfield before another irritating international break. The Hornets are actually quite a good side and beat us 3-0 at Vicarage Road last term, so it’s not going to be a walkover by any stretch of the imagination.
“One week to prepare for Watford. That’s all, that what we have now. We try to do our best, we will see,” he said.
“It’s another job to do, Italian manager, they won, different system, well-organised. Quite a big job to do.”
Arsenal play Spurs next weekend, while Manchester City have a seemingly simple fixture at home to Middlesbrough. Hopefully we’ll rack up another three points with our rivals dropping some points too.
