Jurgen Klopp says it makes no difference that Liverpool play first this weekend, ahead of Manchester City’s trip to Chelsea in one of the later Saturday kick-offs.
According to The Independent, Klopp said: “It is absolutely not a problem for us that we go in the dressing room and see the Manchester City result and they have won again.
“We expect them to win all the time apart from the games against us. We have only to try to play the best season we can play, whatever that means.
“You cannot play against two teams – the one on the other side of the pitch and the one in your mind. Whatever they get at the end of the season they probably deserve. It will be the same for us.”
The Reds just have to concentrate on their own game and keep picking up three points week in, week out. Pep Guardiola’s side are one of the best Premier League teams ever – but we could end the weekend ahead of them.
