It's How It Is - Jurgen Klopp Reacts To Liverpool's 11-Point Lead

It's How It Is - Jurgen Klopp Reacts To Liverpool's 11-Point Lead

Liverpool narrowly missed out on the title last season but a blistering start to the new campaign, in which they have won 12 of their first 13 league matches, has restored hope of a first top-flight triumph since 1990. It makes us a bit more unpredictable but it's nothing I really think about.

With Fabinho missing, Klopp opts for a midfield three of Jordan Henderson, Wijnaldum and Oxlade-Chamberlain, whilst Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane continue in attack.

They are now 11 points clear at the top of the Premier League table, while their stunning unbeaten run in that competition has been stretched to 31 games.

"We brought on a frozen goalkeeper", said Klopp.

"But we kept fighting - Adrian especially helped us with two really good saves but with cold feet he couldn't kick the ball as far as he wanted". "I think we can improve and this is a good sign because we are winning and we are not playing our best". I am very pleased about that, happy about the effort of the boys and proud of the desire they showed.

Liverpool are next in action on Wednesday night in the Merseyside derby against Everton.

However, a battery of genetic tests has failed to determine whether the previously undiscovered species is a dog or a wolf. Researchers are trying to determine whether an 18,000-year-old puppy found in Siberia is a dog or a wolf.

"It was very clever from Brighton but the keeper has just come on and is trying to set the wall". There was no offside and then it is a tricky situation.

Graham Potter's side had played a long ball forward for Leandro Trossard who managed to get ahead of Dejan Lovren. "We only have to make sure we are ready always for the next game". They are trying to get used to each other and the referee lets it go like this.

Klopp hailed the contribution of second-choice keeper Adrian after he came off the bench at a chilly Anfield and made an important late save from Aaron Mooy. "We can not change it but for me it's not 100 percent right".

"Even the goal-kicks are hard with cold feet!"

And, when all was said and done, secure yet another 3 points was precisely what the Merseysiders managed. Leicester plays tomorrow (Sunday) so it could be eight.

Manchester City will be disappointed to be behind Liverpool by double digits just 14 games into the season, and while they have dropped points in 5 of their matches, it's a near-impossible task to keep pace with a team who truly doesn't seem capable of dropping any points right now. We've played good without him, but now it's important to get him doing the right things and get him back as soon as possible. "We have one more day between now and the next game so we have to use that and then we try again".
