Jurgen Klopp: Lets enjoy Premier League title race

Liverpool look to continue their impressive season as they take on a Leicester City side that has lost four in a row. #PremierLeague #Liverpool #LeicesterAre you able to enjoy the title race, Jurgen? "Never." Tough luck for a man who is knee-deep in what could prove to be the tightest Premier League championship battle in several years. Twenty-nine years have passed since Liverpool last won the league title, 29 years in which they have come close before but fallen at the final hurdle. Under manager Jurgen Klopp, that run may be coming to an end, with the Reds sitting four points ahead of Manchester City at the top of the table with 15 matches left to play. For Liverpool fans, it's exciting, yet nerve-wracking - and their German boss is under no illusions as to the importance of those matches. "It's not the biggest stress in the world, but it's so intense and so important and all in a short time," Klopp told BBC sport editor Dan Roan. "Football is not the most important thing in the world, but at these moments, of course, it feels like that because we have nothing else to do. "It's not easy to enjoy but I love what I do."Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool manager says he can 'never' enjoy Premier League title race By Dan Roan & Katie Falkingham BBC Sport 2 hours ago From the sectionLiverpool 294 Share this page "But a lot of people dream of that and that's what we try to deliver." Klopp on why it is not a two-horse race Champions Manchester City are Liverpool's main opponents for Premier League glory but, in Klopp's view, Tottenham are still in contention, sitting nine points behind the Reds in the table. City could reduce the gap between themselves and Liverpool to one point if they win at Newcastle United on Tuesday (20:00 GMT), prior to the Reds hosting Leicester City and Spurs facing Watford on Wednesday. "It's not only Manchester City. Again, everybody writes off Tottenham and I know a lot of people said about them after the last week with two cup competitions, but I really don't get it," Klopp said. "City are a similar age group than we are, on the peak of everything, so it will definitely be difficult, but we don't know where we will end at the end of the season. We don't think about it really. We only want to win as many football games as possible." On Monday, City boss Pep Guardiola said his side would need to "win a lot of games" if they were to usurp Liverpool, but Klopp is expecting the title race to go right to the wire. "It looks like it will be more exciting than last year, so that is good for football in general and for the Premier League," he said. "I would guess it will go right to the end of the season, I don't see any possible gaps. "We have to be flawless as well, everybody has to be."
