Jurgen Klopp weighs-in on title race as Man United look for first title since 2013

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has recently weighed-in on this season’s exciting title race which sees arch-rivals Manchester United more than in the mix to claim their 21st domestic title.

Liverpool cruised to an impressive title win last time out after finishing on 99-points (18-points clear of Manchester City in second) – However, claiming England’s most prestigious title this time out will not be as straight forward.

The new 2020-21 campaign has already been notoriously unpredictable with result after result shocking footballing fans all around the world.

Just four-points currently separate the league’s top-four teams (Liverpool, United, Leicester City and Everton) however, look one place further down and you’ll see Aston Villa who are six-points shy but do have two games in-hand.

Klopp’s Liverpool sit top, but only just. The red half of Merseyside have racked up 33-points in their first 16 matches with United on 30-points from 15 matches.

Should the Red Devils beat Jack Grealish’s Aston Villa on Friday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will see his side head into the new year joint top of the Premier League.

Speaking after his side’s recent 0-0 stalemate away to Newcastle United, Klopp has weighed-in on the mouth-watering title race.

“The last thing that I think about is our position in the table,” the German tactician told Amazon Prime (as quoted by Express). “It’s nice but it doesn’t matter at this stage of the season.

“You’ve seen that we’ve drawn the last two games and we are still top of the table, it just shows how much of a difficult season it is for everybody.

“Other teams won last night [Tuesday] and are now in a good mood, we are in a good mood, when life gives you lemons make lemonade from it.

“We try all the time, when I think of football, these are the moments we all enjoy but in the rest of life at the moment, it isn’t obviously that easy.

“For all the people in the world it’s really difficult but we’ve all thought through it. Winter came and the next wave came and stuff like this.

“So that’s in my mind but we will keep going. Next game Southampton, Aston Villa, United. All these kind of things, that’s good.

“We want to be ready for the games and didn’t get the result we wanted but that’s not the worst thing in life.”

United and Liverpool are set to collide in the Premier League on January 17 in what is arguably going to be the Red Devils’ biggest domestic match since they lifted the 2012-13 title.
