EPL: Klopp names club to challenge Liverpool, Man City for title

He said "Liverpool are a strong team but so are Chelsea, and Arsenal, Manchester United".

The Algeria worldwide was presented with the greatest chance of the match, which finished goalless, for the Premier League champions after Virgil van Dijk tripped Leroy Sane in the area.

City were afforded a great opportunity to steal victory ten minutes later when they were awarded a penalty-kick following a foul inside the box by Virgil Van Dijk, but Mahrez flashed the spot-kick over the target. But if it is an open game at Anfield, or any open game against Liverpool, you don't even have one percent of a chance. It is important to give that pace, that up and down. It is built for that. "In that situation, they are much better".

The German manager celebrated his three-year anniversary at Anfield this week but has not tasted success despite taking the club to three finals.

Yet in the Premier League, Spurs have so far largely overcome that mountain of difficulties to match their best-ever start under Mauricio Pochettino, with six wins from eight games.

"We needed it in all the games we played against them and we will need it again, but that's no problem". "I am really happy with what the boys did".

'Eighty-five minutes, you obviously get a bit tired, and that moment goes by in a split second and I chose to dive in, which is not what I would normally do. You can not defend over 95 minutes, 100 percent but I thought how we defended was brilliant. It's certainly the biggest Premier League game of the season to date, and it's going to be interesting to see how Jurgen Klopp out thinks Pep Guardiola tactically.

That pushed bond prices up and their yields down, ending a surge in yields that had touched off the market's current decline. The S&P 500 has fallen more than two percent and the Nasdaq 100 Index's losses are approaching 10 percent on Thursday.

The Spaniard was left out of the starting line-up but brought on in the 19th minute in place of defender Eric Bailly with the home side already 2-0 down and Mourinho's job on the line. Maybe we learn for the future.

"It was really intense".

"But we deserve this bit of luck with this performance".

Liverpool 0-0 Man City was the highlight of the Premier League weekend.

"You can not ignore City in the preparation for a City game", Klopp said. "Both teams did well. Don't write Chelsea out but they need a real 'goal-getter". That is how they score goals. "We just have to make sure it stays like that". I watched the game on the flight back. For Manchester City, Sergio Aguero came agonisingly close to break the deadlock but his attempts, too, went in vain. No doubt about that.

"We were up for it and we wanted to bounce back from our defeat against Napoli". I apologised. It was my decision.

"We had a clear chance in the last action, so we controlled quite well". We know this club how complicated it is playing in this stadium and how risky they are. "They came as they champions and it was lucky they didn't score but also unlucky we didn't score either". It is a point. If you work hard, you earn it, you deserve it, and that's what we try to do mixed up with very good football, that's the plan. "We had our chance".
