Klopp: From outside, "City can win" the quadruple - Manchester City, liverpool, Jürgen Klopp


City and Pep Guardiola are safely back to the top of the Premier League table and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes the citizens look like the best team in the world now.

Manchester City are on course for a quadruple of trophies in the season, and are Klopp’s biggest obstacle to finishing the campaign as Champions. Whilst the manager [Klopp] admits “City can win all four [trophies]”, he isn’t throwing the towel yet, and is only focused on winning all games left on the Merseyside’s fixture list.

Ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Southampton, Klopp said: “If you were watching from outside, you’d think it looks like City can win all four [trophies] and I think the same.

“City in the moment look like the best team in the world. That’s how it is. Barcelona the other night [against Villarreal on Tuesday] struggled a little bit but still did the job [drawing 4-4].

“Juventus look pretty impressive in Italy but you don’t exactly know how it will be in the Champions League. With City, those are the three big Champions League favourites.

“And you think, okay, City looks a bit more stable than all of them. But that doesn’t mean that they will win all their games. I can imagine that people think that, but it doesn’t make it more likely.

“How many people watch all 90 minutes of City games? They won 2-0 against Fulham, we won 2-1 against Fulham because we made a mistake that we usually don’t make.

“I don’t care, I don’t bet, I’m not interested in odds. I’m just interested in our games and we cannot do more than win our games. We will try to win them with all we have.

“We were really happy after Sunday [beating Tottenham 2-1] but we knew pretty quick Southampton was the next challenge, then Porto [in the Champions League quarter-finals], then Chelsea, then Porto again.

“There is a lot to come and the only thing I can say is that we try everything to be really ready for that fight.”

Jurgen Klopp would be hoping to put some sort of pressure on Guardiola and Manchester City by beating Southampton and retaking top spot on the Premier League table, with the Citizens in action in the FA Cup semi finals against Brighton and Hove Albion.
