Premier League manager refuses to write off Arsenal title chances

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has refused to write off Arsenal as one of the clubs that can challenge for the Premier League title in this campaign.

The German manager and Pep Guardiola have made Liverpool and Manchester City two clubs above every other opponent in the Premier League in the last few seasons.

Both of them regularly challenge for the title, and they have shared the last five, with City winning two of their four on the last day of the season.

Both clubs have also strengthened their squad in this transfer window and will push to remain the leading clubs in England at the end of this campaign.

However, Klopp doesn’t care about what has been done and says Arsenal is clearly a threat.

He tells ESPN FC: “We are not that far ahead. There’s a bit of a misunderstanding about the points tally.

“We played Chelsea [last season] and didn’t win one game [in 90 minutes], and that’s not because we were bad that day. That just shows you that Chelsea are incredibly strong. When you look at Tottenham – they were good last year and they haven’t got worse over the summer.

“Arsenal is still there. Man Utd with the new start and these kind of things, it’s always the same. That’s how it is. I’m not interested in the points we got last year, I’m only interested in the points we will get this season. We will have to fight, and then let’s see what the outcome is.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

A new season gives every competitor the same opportunity to make an impact, and Klopp knows this.

Arsenal has been adding some exciting players to their squad recently, and the German knows they cannot be written off before the season starts.

Hopefully, we would start the campaign well and achieve a better finish than the 5th place we earned in the last campaign.

  1. technically speaking, even newcastle can’t be written off from title chances, every single EPL does have a chance, only how good/bad is the odds.

    to be fair, no one will expect arsenal to compete for title this season. top 4 finish will very much be everyone expectation after our summer business concluded.

  2. Klopp also seemed to not write off Chelsea, spuds,or Utd’s chances either.

    I like Klopp’s statement about how he is concerned about their points this year, not last year.

    He is 100% in the present not looking back. Good lesson for me to learn personally, and maybe others as well.

    Let’s concentrate on what Arsenal is doing presently, their points this year, how we play, and how we have adapted and evolved.

    Klopp’s quotes show he has the right mentality, one of many reasons I think he is the best manager in the world.

  3. Well said Klop. Yesterday is history and tomorrow is not guaranteed, only the present matters in life and in football. Absolute right approach. My only prayer is that Arsenal get in the right and much needed players this season and give it all we have in every game. Whatever happens, lets not only finish better than last season but play better too both individually and collectively.
