Jurgen Klopp makes surprise EPL title claim


English Premier League leaders Liverpool are not ready to be carried away with their six points lead at the top of the Premier League as manager Jurgen Klopp claims his side can still not be regarded as favourites.

A few weeks ago, the title race was believed to be between Manchester City and the Reds with the Citizens leading but that has since changed when the Pep Guardiola side saw his side being beaten in two Premier League games.

This, therefore, relegates the City side to the third position with 44 points after 19 games while Tottenham have been in top form to emerge second in the table with 45 points.

Liverpool are top with 51 points into the Christmas period and that has made pundits point to them as the favourite but manager Jurgen Klopp has dismissed the lead.

According to him, the season is still at midway which makes it difficult to point to his side knowing that there are many more difficult games ahead of them, going into the New Year.

Klopp noted that he will have to play Arsenal and Manchester City which are games that could help shape the league table for the season and that has to be done before praises are given to his side.
