Klopp downplays Liverpool's title chances

27 September 2016, 19:15

Cape Town - Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has dismissed any talk of his side mounting a title challenge following a strong start to the 2016/17 Premier League campaign.

The Merseysiders are flying high in fourth place, level with Arsenal on 13 points after recording a convincing 5-1 victory over 10-man Hull City at the weekend.

The manner in which the Reds have kick started their campaign has impressed many pundits, while their early-season form has also seen bookies make Klopp's side second favourites for the league title.

However, Klopp is having none of it, insisting it is still too early for end-of-season predictions.

When asked about the bookies' odds on Sky Sports Monday Night Football, Klopp said: "I don't understand the numbers.

"I know where I come from, you keep your money, you don't do something like this!"

He added: "It is not important for me but it is better to have an optimistic mood around.

"At this moment, Liverpool feels good. We had this very important game against Hull and we did it in a really impressive way.

"It's nice to see [the table] but the one problem is the number, it is six games now so it's at an early stage which is the only problem.

"I'm happy about this but I know there is a long way to go."
