Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp on his recent press conference stated that he is busy with Liverpool’s next games and does not think about catching up with league leaders Manchester City.

He said, “Out of all the problems I have, the smallest one is Man City. There is no minute when I think about them.”

Liverpool are the favourites if any team is to catch up to Manchester City in the Premier League. The reds are 9 points behind City currently with a game in hand. Victory over relegation battlers Norwich on Saturday would allow Liverpool to close the gap on City to six points, although City are at home later against struggling Tottenham Hotspur.

Talking about the game against Norwich, the German coach said that he has a lot of respect for Daniel Farke, the ex-Norwich manager. He said, “I have a lot of respect for Daniel Farke. Dean [Smith] has come in and he has done well because he is good. It’s a really good football-playing side.

“They don’t often get the results and that’s why they have the points tally they have, but they will not stop believing in staying in the league and I admire that.

“It’s a very positive style and if you let them play, then they play. If you give them the chance to get behind your back line, they will go as they have proper speed there.

“We have to try and avoid these passes in behind and we have to make sure we have a proper set-up for that. We played on Wednesday [against Inter Milan] and only came back yesterday because of the wind and now we play again. So for different reasons, it’s a difficult game for us.”

Jurgen Klopp side are coming off of a good 2-0 win over Inter Milan in the Champions League with late goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.
