Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has said that he has immense faith in his players and is not concerned by the recent league defeat at the hands of Manchester City. The Reds had faced City on Thursday night knowing that a victory would take them 10 points ahead of the reigning champions but that was not the case with the Citizens securing a 2-1 triumph.
Following the game, Klopp admitted that he is relatively unperturbed by the defeat, given the Reds still have a four-point advantage over the Citizens at the top of the table, he quipped: “I have so much faith in my players you can’t imagine. But if somebody would have told me that after both the City games – not that I’ve thought about it – that we would be four points clear, I would have paid money for it you cannot believe. You (some of the media) wanted to tell us the season is over if we lose tonight. But football is like this. If we’d have won tonight we’d have been 10 points clear, but we’re not. For us it’s really important that we take it game by game because there’s no other chance.”
