Wow! Klopp opens up and stuns Arsenal fans with massive Premier League title claim
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp doesn’t believe Arsenal are far away from taking the next step and challenging for the title.
Klopp may have won the Champions League last season and is sitting pretty at the very top of the Premiewr League this season, but the battle behind to catch up to the Germans side ha sonly just begun.
Manchester City are under the guidance of Pep Guardiola and are always a threat, Manchester United are a few signings away from getting back in the hunt, Spurs have hired Jose Mourinho in order to get that winning mentality, while Chelsea have begun the long process of bringing talent through the ranks in order to build a solid foundation.
But over at the Emirates, there is some real concern among the media that Arsenal are heading in the wrong direction after the appointment of Mikel Arteta, as the Spanish boss has a squad that will struggle to even get back inside the top six by the end of the season.
But despite the poor results lately, in discussion with former Gunners boss Arsene Wenger for beIN SPORTS, the Liverpool manager spoke of the intense competition in the Premier League and said he expected Arsenal to rival his side once they had sorted their defensive problems out.
“We have made good [transfer] decisions and that is what you need to make the next step in football because the other teams don’t sleep,” said Klopp.
“Manchester City constantly bring in players, Leicester, now, are a really good team and made really smart decisions in the transfer market on top of what they already have.
‘Arsenal, for example, are a team offensively that are still a really good side but defensive organisation doesn’t work out yet.
‘The moment they sort that, they make the next step. So that is the league we are facing.
“We have to develop, it is not if we want to. We have to to be as successful as possible.”
