‘Let’s Enjoy The Ride’, Klopp Tells Liverpool

Liverpool put up an impressive display in the 5-0 drubbing of Watford on Thursday night after their unimpressive 0-0 draw against Manchester United over the weekend.

The Reds sit atop the Premier League table with 69 points, while Manchester City, second, have 68 points after they beat West Ham 1-0 at the Etihad.

Klopp’s side without the injured Roberto Firmino were imperious against Watford, as Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk both scored braces and Divock Origi completed the scoring.

Liverpool could have been three points ahead of City but their draw at Old Trafford left them with just a one point lead at the top.

Klopp speaking after the Watford game however insisted that he had no problems with the draw against United.

“We drew against Manchester United and Bayern Munich, and I think most teams would wish they had these problems,” he said.

“Tonight we were sensational. It was really good football. I am not aware of the noise from outside. I get it from press conferences. The journalists in Liverpool are very passionate.”

With Liverpool leading the charge on the Premier League title, Jurgen Klopp insisted that he remains confident on Liverpool’s title chances.

“We have 69 points. We could have had 75, that’s possible,” he added.

“But we are playing a really good season. Let’s enjoy the ride and see as far as it takes us.

“We have to play football and win games then we will see what happens.

“It is not [that] I go in the dressing room and someone tells me the [Man City] result and I have a heart attack.

“It is just a normal thing. If you are top of the table it is pretty likely the contenders all win.

“That’s the only advantage you have when you fight for staying in the league because the other teams lose a bit more often than in our fight.

“I didn’t think about it, but it is what I expected.”
