Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, has revealed that the ‘only chance’ for his team, Chelsea, to catch up with Manchester City on the Premier League table is for them to win their games.
Klopp also admitted that it would not be easy for both Liverpool and Chelsea to catch Man City.
Liverpool is currently in the third position on the Premier League table with 9 points behind leaders Man City and a point behind second-place Chelsea.
The Reds have so far played 19 matches, while Man City and Chelsea have played 20 matches each.
Speaking ahead of Liverpool’s away Premier League tie with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, Klopp said at his pre-match press conference: “The only chance to catch anybody who is ahead of you is to win your football games and that’s not so easy now.
“We play against Chelsea, a proper football team, might have similar issues like we have – I’m not 100 percent in the frame of what exactly the situation is at Chelsea, but that’s probably the case. We go there, we try everything and it’s a tricky place to go anyway.”
The kick-off time for Chelsea vs Liverpool is 5.30 pm.
