Despite beating Sunderland 0-1, the Kop manager Jurgen Klopp is unsure if the Reds still hold a chance to clinch the title. Klopp says he isn’t anticipating results for the future, as of now. The German only wishes to enjoy the New Year’s Eve before their trip to West Ham.
‘’No, I don’t know [if we are title contenders],” Klopp said.
“You can see we both have 30 points, and you can see how at Manchester United the atmosphere isn’t the best, so you can see how football can be sometimes.’’
“But we have not to look at it. We wanted at least 30 points and we’ve got them. We go home, celebrate New Year’s Eve with the family, then go to West Ham and try to win again.”
Benteke scored the only goal in their 1-0 victory over Sunderland. The Reds’ gaffer said, “Two goals, six points and two clean sheets is really good for us. It’s well deserved.’’
‘’It was hard work. We were the better team and you could see that the pressure for both teams because of the intensity of the last weeks and months.
“They made it hard for us. Then we made the goal after half-time and we controlled the game but couldn’t make another goal. But we got to the final whistle, three points, go home, everything is good!” he added.
Liverpool is 7th on the table and is on equal points with Manchester United. Both teams have bagged 30 points until now.
