Jurgen Klopp relaxed about Liverpool FC’s latest setback in title race
The Liverpool FC manager is relaxed about his side's position in the title race despite Sunday's stalemate
Jurgen Klopp has reiterated there is still a long way to go in the Premier League title race.
Liverpool FC dropped more points in the Premier League on Sunday following a frustrating 0-0 draw with Everton in the Merseyside derby.
The visitors struggled to create many clear-cut chances against a rugged Everton defence but when the Reds did find a gap, Mohamed Salah failed to make the breakthrough.
Liverpool FC have dropped eight points in the last eight games to hand Manchester City the opportunity to reclaim top spot in the Premier League.
The Citizens remain the only team to beat Liverpool FC in the Premier League this season but Klopp’s side have seen their performance level drop since their loss at The Etihad in January.
Speaking at his post-match media conference about Liverpool FC’s stalemate with Everton and what it meant in the context of the title race, Klopp said:
“Look, we are not little boys any more, it’s not that we were completely surprised that we can play good football and we are in the very, very top part of the table.
“But if you are there you have to be ready for all the different things that happen. Sometimes you have a lead and everybody says, ‘that’s done’ 20 games before the end of the season.
“To stay calm in these situations was very easy. Then you have one point or two points more. It’s absolutely not important. At the beginning of March, who cares?
“The good thing is that we are in the battle, we are in the fight, that’s really good news.”
Manchester City will have the opportunity to move four points clear of Liverpool FC when they host Watford in the Premier League next Saturday.
Liverpool FC will taken on Burnley at Anfield less than 24 hours later when Klopp’s side look to keep pace with their title rivals.
Klopp’s side have collected 70 points from 29 games in the Premier League this term.
