“The gap is so insane’ Klopp opens up after Liverpool open gap to 25 points
Jurgen Klopp has admitted the gap between Liverpool and Manchester City has become insane.
Liverpool have dominated both Europe and the Premier League this season and are on course to re-claim their Champions League title that they won last season, while ending a thirty year wait and bringing the Premier League title back to Anfield.
And Liverpool took another stride towards the Premier League title as they overcame Norwich 1-0 at a blustery Carrow Road thanks to Sadio Mane’s second-half strike, as the victory extends Liverpool’s winning streak in the Premier League to 17 games, an incredible run that has moved them to within five more victories of a first league title in 30 years.
And after the game, Klopp opened up and admitted that he cant understand the gap at the top, telling the Sky Sports website: “It was a difficult game for different reasons. The wind, the organisation of the opponent and the way we played first half made it tricky for us. Fabinho coming on was very important for the organisation. Sadio was fresh and he helped us to win the game, which was outstanding. I have to watch the goal back but I’m pretty sure it was a fantastic finish.
“The gap is so insane; I don’t really understand it. I’m not smart enough. I’ve not had that before. It’s outstanding, it’s so difficult. I go back into the changing room and we chat about the things and then I’m like oh, but congratulations. We won the game, another three points.”
LIVERPOOLonly have themselves to beat now and many fans cannot wait for that day that they are made official Champions, as it has been a long-time waiting.
