Liverpool coach, Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Manchester City looks like the best team in the world with the way they have been whitewashing teams this season.
Both teams are vying for the premier league trophy with Liverpool trailing Manchester City with one point.
“If you were watching from outside, you’d think it looks like City can win all four [trophies] and I think the same,”
Klopp said ahead of Friday’s trip to Southampton.
“City in the moment look like the best team in the world.
That’s how it is. Barcelona the other night [against Villarreal on Tuesday] struggled a little bit but still did the job [drawing 4-4].
“Juventus look pretty impressive in Italy but you don’t exactly know how it will be in the
Champions League .
With City, those are the three big Champions League favourites.
“And you think, okay, City looks a bit more stable than all of them.
But that doesn’t mean that they will win all their games. I can imagine that people think that, but it doesn’t make it more likely.
“How many people watch all 90 minutes of City games? They won 2-0 against Fulham , we won 2-1 against Fulham because we made a mistake that we usually don’t make.
“I don’t care, I don’t bet, I’m not interested in odds. I’m just interested in our games and we cannot do more than win our games. We will try to win them with all we have.
“We were really happy after Sunday [beating
Tottenham 2-1] but we knew pretty quick Southampton was the next challenge, then
Porto [in the Champions League quarter-finals], then Chelsea, then Porto again.
“There is a lot to come and the only thing I can say is that we try everything to be really ready for that fight.”
Manchester City are not in Premier League action this week, they are playing against Brighton in the FA Cup semi final at the Wembley stadium.

EPL New Rules Ahead 2019/2020 Season…
The rule that would be implemented under this is that there would be no chance given to any players to waste time on the pitch anymore, as substituted players would have to leave the pitch at the closest side of the pitch and card may probably be awarded for wasting time.
The Goalkeepers would, therefore, have to have a foot put on the line and would not be allowed to touch the goal posts before the shoot out of the penalty kicks. In this manner, no Goalkeeper would be able to exploit any chance to avert an opportunity to lead.
The coach would also have to be carded by the Referee in a similar as players were being carded during a match. Both yellow and red cards would also be applicable to coaches as well as starting from next season.
- The goal would be denied if the ball actually strikes any player’s hand during the development to have a goal.
- If any player should make any favourable moves in handling the ball outside the penalty kickbox, even if it regarded unintentional, freekicks would be awarded.
- The IFAB dispose of ‘manufactured’ restarts if there be any drop balls.
The IFAB make it clear that:
“The current dropped ball procedure often leads to a ‘manufactured’ restart which is ‘exploited’ unfairly or an aggressive confrontation.
“Returning the ball to the team that last played it restores what was ‘lost’ when play was stopped, except in the penalty area where it is simpler to return the ball to the goalkeeper.
“To prevent that team gaining an unfair advantage, all players of both teams, except the player receiving the ball, must be at least 4m (4.5 yds) away.”
