Arsenal’s defeat to Tottenham this weekend has left us 7 points behind our local rivals and a further 2 behind Liverpool in the race for the Top Four, but the Reds boss Jurgen Klopp thinks that the Gunners can challenge Liverpool before the end of the season.
Klopp watched his team beat Souhampton yesterday and made his point after the game. “It was not a brilliant performance, not everything worked quite well, the wind was quite strange,” Klopp said. “It was difficult circumstances and we did the job. That is very important.
“We scored early, got the second goal in the right moment and then controlled the game.
“We don’t have normal weekends anymore. We want to finish the season top four and we need the points. I don’t think nine points from Arsenal is enough to have rest, but it is nine points. There is a lot to go for and we will try to carry on like today.”
Do you think he is being serious? Arsenal have won just one of last NINE away games have lost 8 games already in the League this season. If we are seriously going to overtake Liverpool then Klopp’s team would need to lose three more games than us in the last 11 matches, but the fact is that his team have only lost three games all season! Not to mention that they have a 15 goal superior goal difference!
Surely Klopp should be more worried about Tottenham, who are just 2 points below them, and Chelsea, who if they win tonight will be just 1 point below them. Why is he even mentioning Arsenal in the race for the Top Four?
