Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes that the current squad is the strongest he has had during all his years at the club. After City dropped points against Palace, the title race is now in their hands as they prepare for an Arsenal side who are on a superb run themselves. In January, the gap between City and Liverpool was 14 points although the Merseyside club had two games in hand.
“When I go back through my career I cannot remember very often when it did not go to the last match,” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said. “Unfortunately, not always winning it, sometimes staying in the league or whatever. I don’t know exactly what it is about me but it happens quite frequently. Around 65 minutes, for analysis reasons. What are they doing in these situations? Who is playing? When you really think about it, in the Premier League, with the opponents we face, one of them is Manchester City, obviously.”
“With all due respect to all the opponents we also have Manchester United, Tottenham, we have to play Villa away, Wolves in the last match, all these kind of things,” he added. “It is nice that we are having these discussions because it means that we are close enough to kind of have a chance. It is better than being 20 points behind. But all we can do is try with all that we have to win the next football match. The most important one and the most difficult one is now. Away at Arsenal. It is a tricky one because they are in a very good moment, Arsenal. They are at home. I don’t think there is any team in the world that would go to Arsenal and count the points already, adding them on before you have played the game. We will not.”
