'The most challenging of opponents' - Klopp not underestimating Manchester United 'quality'

'The most challenging of opponents' - Klopp not underestimating Manchester United 'quality'

In the Premier League, we are 1-0 up and in the last 10 or 15 minutes, you have to be careful, because anything can happen. You have to give credit to Manchester United, they dug in.

In a familiar story for Chelsea fans this season, they watched Lampard's side dominate possession at St James' Park, only to squander the few genuine chances they created before Isaac Hayden's stoppage-time header won it for Newcastle.

If both sides continue at their current rate then Liverpool could seal the title with a win over Everton on 14 March as their lead would likely be between 23 and 25 points, with just 24 points to play for after that game.

Liverpool host the Red Devils in the Premier League on Sunday as they look to gain revenge for the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in October.

Even if City lost their next five games the likes of Leicester, now third, would likely pick up enough points to keep the title race alive, just.

Liverpool extended to last season, when Liverpool was at a certain point brought to the title by Manchester City, Liverpool has collected 91 of the last 93. Jose Mourinho's side have gone 195 minutes in the Premier League without scoring following their 0-0 draw at Watford on Saturday. We know this ourselves. If we do that, it would be great, but at the end of the day we just want to win the Premier League.

"They have recruited some exceptional players and the evolution of their squad makes them one of the strongest in Europe, I would say".

What's the biggest lead after 22 games?

. "They've been excellent and have formed a relationship together at Liverpool and it will be tough to stop them, but it's a challenge we're looking forward to and if we play to the best of our ability we've got threats ourselves, and in our team, which I'm sure they're going to be anxious about".

The fans had not dared to sing it until now because, since the last title success in 1990, the club has had so many false dawns and near misses that even mentioning impending glory had been regarded as tempting fate and the surest sign that something will go wrong, as a result of premature confidence. His exemplary distribution from the back helped keep Solskjaer's men on the back foot for much of the game.

Their 61 points from 21 games is already the best start to a season by any team in any of Europe's top five leagues ever.

Marcus Rashford's first-half goal nearly gave Ols Gunnar Solskjaer's side a clean sheet until Adam Lallana benefited from a poor defending from the home side and tap the loose ball into the net. "I think we stay together and the dressing room has always been top during good and bad periods", he said.

Now that is a record Liverpool do NOT want to break.
