Premier League: Jurgen Klopp plays down title talk


Liverpool are now top of the Premier League table after securing an impressive 6-1 victory over Watford at Anfield Road on Sunday. Sadio Mane scored twice for the Reds against Watford, while Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, Emre Can and Georginio Wijnaldum also got their names on the score sheet. The Reds are now one point clear of second-placed Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table, but manager Jurgen Klopp does not want to talk about a title challenge after just 11 league matches played this season. Liverpool have not won the title since 1990.

"We've started collecting points but we need to go on with this. Then we will see where we can end," Klopp said after Sunday's match. "I know in the past a lot of things happened here and the story two, three years ago when it was really close, but this is not the team two or three years ago. This is not the team 25 years ago. We're completely new. We stay cool. It's the best position I can imagine but nothing else has happened." The situation is quite uncertain at the summit of the Premier League table, with the top five teams separated by just five points.

"There's no pressure after 11 match days, absolutely no pressure," Klopp added. "We saw Chelsea, quite impressive. Man City playing Barcelona, quite impressive. Man United - never write them off. Tottenham are a good side. There's a lot of really good teams around. We didn't speak one word about the possibility of being top of the table. For me it's more important that we look like a team who is able to win games. When I came here I asked for time and patience and belief, and after 11 matches everyone's asking for guarantees and they are not there."

Liverpool are now 5/2 at Bet365 to win the Premier League title this season.

    Yes it's ridiculously early for a title talks after just 11 games but the fact is that Liverpool playing by far the best football by all teams this season and I said that after just 3 games not 11, they would always be a contender with that performance but of course their fans have the right to be conservative because of all that happened with that club in the PL over the years.
    Couple of times they were really close to win it but never played so good like now, the only issue for them should be the consistency of their leading players and the squad depth of course, I think they could and will do it, in the end they could even win the league by a margin if they performing like as of mow.

    Liverpool became a very good team under Jurgen Klopp. The team evolves from season to season (or week to week). I really like the German transfer policy: he doesn't want to buy real superstars, he's looking for only relative youth players and wants to build up them to world-class level. FC Liverpool are not one of the Manchester's giants nor Chelsea. I hope they will be able to win the Premier League this season because they deserve it.
