Jurgen Klopp thinks the Premier League title race could be over already.
The Liverpool boss points to Manchester City’s stunning start to the season that has taken them five points clear at the top.
City beat Burnley 3-0 on Saturday to continue their fine form, while closest rivals Manchester United lost at Huddersfield Town.
Liverpool go to Tottenham today 12 points adrift of the leaders despite playing just eight matches.
And Klopp told the Liverpool Echo: “If you ask, ‘Is the race already done?’
“City are so strong, flying along at the top of the table.
“Maybe this race is decided already. I haven’t a clue.
“But there is still a lot to get in this league and to play for, especially for us.
“We have improved as well since last year, that is how it is.
“Perhaps not too much in the results, but in creating moments, chances.
“A lot of better things than last year, but so far we have not taken the results.
“If we stay convinced about our way and bring in consistency from what we’ve had performance-wise so far, then we can have our best season.
“That is the next step. We can build on this base.”
Liverpool’s form is patchy – just one win in their last five Premier League games before the trip to Wembley.
If Spurs they will will join United in second place on 20 points.
But Klopp obviously believes Pep Guardiola’s unbeaten team are the ones to beat.
