Klopp claims Reds must improve to secure title

first_imgJurgen Klopp says Liverpool needs to step up their game in the bid to claim their first Premier League crown.Klopp went ahead to predict a multi-club race for the 2019 title with Spurs increasingly becoming a threat after closing up the gap to two points on Man City.The German boss rejected the notion that the North Londoners were never in the running for the title.“You make these stories about who is in and who is out,” Klopp told the Telegraph media ahead of Liverpool’s Boxing Day meeting with Newcastle.“I saw the game yesterday against Everton, with the goal that didn’t count and then the first goal of Tottenham was a situation that they needed. Everton played more than OK in the first few minutes, then they hit pretty much everything and it was impressive what Tottenham did.📈 – Érik Lamela has been directly involved in 10 goals in his past 9 games for Spurs (7 goals, 3 assists). #SpursStats pic.twitter.com/tXqXQtE8GZ— #SpursStats (@_SpursStats) October 21, 2018“That can happen. To Chelsea, to Arsenal, all of them. No decision is made. Why should it be that somebody feels safe or somebody feels out of the race or whatever?“For me they (Spurs) were never out, so why should I be surprised that they are in again?Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“It’s just a fantastic football team. I said a few times that for me Tottenham had the most difficult pre-season, and not due to not signing players because if you have the right team then why should you sign players? But they had eight or nine players who played the full World Cup, and so far their season is more than impressive.“A lot of teams are in the title race and that’s how it should be. It’s different to last year when pretty much nobody was in it anymore at this time. It’s good for all supporters.”Liverpool have enjoyed their best start to a Premier League season.
