Klopp: ‘Premier League will be a Race To the Final Day
It’s advantage Liverpool at the halfway stage of the Premier League title race.
While champions Manchester City were tripping up 2-1 at Leicester City, Jurgen Klopp’s Reds were thrashing Newcastle United 4-0 at Anfield to open up a six-point lead at the top of the table.
At the same time, Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham made it 11 goals in two games with a thumping 5-0 win over Bournemouth.
So, Liverpool are flying, Spurs have crept up to second and City have seemingly gone off the boil.
But what are the managers saying about the race for the title?
Liverpool on fire – will they stay at the top?
Seven points separate the top three, but despite his side’s six-point cushion at the top, Liverpool boss Klopp expects the race for the title to go down to the wire.
“We had no idea about the Manchester City result until after the game,” the German told Match of the Day after his side’s comprehensive 4-0 win over Newcastle thanks to goals from Dejan Lovren, Mohamed Salah, Xherdan Shaqiri and substitute Fabinho.
“We play City soon – if I were them, I would think there are only four points because we still have to play them, then we play Arsenal before then as well.
