‘They don’t win the league’ – Klopp makes Manchester City title claim

Posted by

Jurgen Klopp has claimed that Manchester City would not have won the Premier League if they had suffered Liverpool’s injury crisis this year.

The Reds have been without starting centre-half duo Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez for much of the season, with backup centre-halves Joel Matip, Fabinho, and Ozan Kabak all ruled out at various stages of the campaign.

“It is how I said before this year, with the amount of injuries we have had, it was not the year to become champions. No chance. For nobody,” the German told reporters at his pre-match presser (via the Evening Standard).

“As good as they are, if City have their three centre-halves out, no, they don’t win the league.

“Three centre-halves of United, no.”

The club currently sit in the top four spots for the first time in three months, needing a win against Crystal Palace on Sunday to boost their chances of Champions League qualification.

In fairness to Klopp, it’s difficult to see how any of the likes of the Citizens or Manchester United would have survived under the same conditions we’ve been subjected to this term.

Given how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are flagging of late without key man Harry Maguire – not to forget the fuss City made over losing Aymeric Laporte last season – it’s clear that neither side would have coped well with our list of injuries.

Moving forward into the next campaign, hopefully with Champions League football to our name, we’d imagine that the chances of such an injury crisis being inflicted on us again would have to be somewhat slim.

  1. Yeah when Liverpool won the league last season it had nothing to do with the fact Manchester City were ravaged by injury’s to our best players right? Not to mention Leroy Sane never played a single match almost the entire season.

    We won this seasons Premier League without Sergio Aguero our only Striker who can actually score goals and with another Striker Gabriel Jesus who can score a goal to save his life. Oh yeah it’s all about the Manchester City myth that we can field two Champions League winning teams isn’t it now sigh. City’s depth may be good but the quality certainly is t upto Premier League winning standard.

    You outsiders are bias and blinkered and live in your own little worlds void of common sense and reality.

    Klopp is a bitter loser, Liverpool fans are jealous sore losers.

  2. Typical Klopp, always somebody else’s fault. Liverpool’s worst result at the start of the season with a 7-2 loss to villa with ALL PLAYERS FIT.
