Coach Jurgen Klopp is not too interested in the race with Manchester City but instead focuses on the performance of his students.
Marching to King Power with the baggage of a victory over Leicester City in the League Cup in the middle of last week, however, Liverpool received a 0-1 defeat. Ademola Lookman was the one who scored the only goal of the match to leave The Kops empty-handed.

With this result, Liverpool was 6 points behind Manchester City in the Premier League table after 19 matches. The way to compete for the championship of coach Jurgen Klopp’s army is becoming difficult, especially in the next match they will face Chelsea this weekend.

When asked about the race against Man City at the top of the table, the German captain said: “Yes, Chelsea and we play against each other. I know that well. But our plan is not to fight. at Leicester tonight to compete with Man City.

If we play like tonight, we don’t have to think about catching Man City. It is important for Liverpool to look at themselves. I still don’t have the right explanation for today’s performance and my concern right now is to find it, not the point gap with City at the moment.”
