Klopp Plans To Tune Out Arsenal, City Games




Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has no plans to watch fellow title chasers Arsenal and Manchester City play on Wednesday, with his side holding a two-point lead atop the Premier League and nine games remaining in the tightest race in years.

Either of Liverpool’s rivals could provisionally take first place with victories, although Liverpool can then reclaim the lead when they host last-placed Sheffield United on Thursday.

“I didn’t even know that (Arsenal and City) play tonight,” Klopp told reporters. “I expect them always to win. So, it’s not about that, we need to get our points in, we need to win our football games, so I’m honestly not interested.


“Years ago, when I watched a game and wanted Leicester to win, it didn’t happen, that was the last time I did that. You learn from the past, so when they play, my heart rate doesn’t go up.”

Klopp’s team have 67 points, two ahead of Arsenal, who host Luton Town, and three ahead of City, who host Aston Villa.
