Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has stressed that his team must not get carried away after making a strong start to the ongoing campaign. The Merseyside giants have begun the season with a 10-match unbeaten run in the Premier League and their most recent victory over Cardiff City has seen them jump to the top of the table ahead of Manchester City, who have a game in hand.
Since the international break, Liverpool have bagged three straight victories across all competitions and their latest came against Cardiff City where they utterly dominated the proceedings with 80 per cent of the possession. As such, they picked up a comfortable 4-1 triumph at Anfield and the pressure is not right on the shoulders of Manchester City to retain the top spot when they make the trip to Wembley to face Tottenham Hotspur on Monday night.
Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp’s side now have the entire week to pressure for their Premier League showdown against Arsenal, given they are already out of the League Cup. Klopp’s men have had the better of the Gunners in recent seasons and they will go into next weekend’s game with three draws and three wins from their previous six meetings.
