Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool are without doubt one of the form teams in the Premier League. Just two defeats in their last 22 EPL outings says a lot. Not only are they winning, they are winning in style. Bar a poor performance at Old Trafford they have mostly scored for fun, with Mo Salah leading the charge.
Man City may have flown at the top, but Liverpool look like the biggest threats to Man Utd in 2nd place. Jurgen Klopp isn't getting carried away though, and he is taking it one game at a time. Next up is a tricky task at Selhurst Park after the International break, and Klopp won't be taking Palace lightly.
Klopp Hoping For Clean Bill Of Health
One of the biggest worries for managers is the well being of their players that are away on International duty. Klopp is no different, and he also spoke about Liverpool's top 4 challenge earlier this week. He said: “We can only do our job.We have to win football games and the next one especially will be very difficult.”
“Crystal Palace, they won on Saturday. We play after an international break so we have to be ready in two days. We will be ready in two days, that’s a challenge but first of all my players all need to come back healthy and I hope really for that.”
Crunch Time For Reds
The next couple of weeks will define Liverpool's season. After Palace they face City over two legs in the UCL, and sandwiched in between those ties is a Merseyside Derby at Goodison. Jurgen Klopp may have to prioritise and rotate his starting eleven.
Klopp has yet to lift a trophy with Liverpool and the Champions League is his only chance of doing that this season. If The Reds can finish 2nd the season will be deemed a success. However, if they can win the Champions League they will instantly achieve legendary status on Merseyside. It is easy to guess which one Klopp would prefer.
