The Red Devils were beaten 2-1 by their bitter local rivals at Old Trafford last weekend as they were dealt a serious blow to their title hopes.
Manchester City have been the Premier League’s top performing team by some distance this season and it looks as if Pep Guardiola’s men will take some stopping in the race for the title.
Jose Mourinho has been tasked with steering Manchester United to their first Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in the summer of 2013.
However, it looks as if the Red Devils are likely to have to wait at least another season to try and get their hands on the trophy.
And Liverpool FC manager Klopp believes that his side and Manchester United are no longer thinking about winning the title this season.
Speaking at a news conference on Friday, Klopp said: “This season nobody is really fighting anymore for the title. I don’t think United are.
“We will all try to come as close as possible but if City doesn’t have any dropped points then they will probably win it.
“So does that mean all the others have to stop? To be the best of the rest could be a fantastic target. So it is to try to have the best position in the table which for us for the last, I don’t know how many years, is probably third or second.”
Manchester United are currently preparing for their Premier League clash against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns on Sunday afternoon.
The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table in Mourinho’s first season in charge last term.
