Liverpool boss Klopp says Man City match doesn't decide title

Liverpool boss Klopp says Man City match doesn’t decide title.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has warned against viewing Sunday’s match against Manchester City as decisive for the Premier League title.

Victory at the Etihad Stadium would give Liverpool their 11th successive league victory and leave them two points clear of City at the top of the table with seven games remaining.

But even if they are successful against City, there is no guarantee Liverpool will have a good end to the season, with a derby against Everton and a clash with bitter rivals Manchester United before the end of this month.

Liverpool will make the short journey through the northwest to Manchester following a 3-1 victory against Benfica in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-finals, a result that has left the six-time European champion’s edge of victory in the last four.

“If we win against City, which is already difficult enough, I think no one would think, ‘that’s it, decided’, because of the quality of the opponent,” Klopp told reporters on Wednesday (April 6).

“We play now against the best team in the world, but we will try anyway.

“Everyone knows the importance of the next game, but after this, there will be another game in another competition, but also in the Premier League.

“If you can’t be first, you want to be second. If you’re behind, then you want to get close. If you’re close, you want to overtake.”

“That is the situation and we will try it properly.”

Liverpool remains on course for an unlikely quadruple of trophies this season after winning the English League Cup in February.

But German coach Klopp said: “We are in the (Champions League) quarter-finals, in the (FA Cup) semi-final and the further you go in the competitions, the more difficult it becomes.”
