Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp expressed his anticipation of further plot twists in the Premier League title race following his team’s 2-2 draw against Manchester United on Sunday.

With Liverpool holding a two-point lead in the title race entering the weekend, they appeared poised to maintain that advantage as they dominated the first half against United.

However, despite squandering numerous opportunities to extend their lead, United mounted a comeback with impressive goals from Bruno Fernandes and Kobbie Mainoo. Liverpool ultimately relied on a Mohamed Salah penalty to secure a crucial point at Old Trafford.

The outcome has left two teams level at the top of the table, with Arsenal edging ahead of Liverpool on goal difference.

When questioned about his expectations for twists in the title race, Klopp remarked, “It is likely… You have to win a lot of football games. You cannot do what we did today.

That will not be enough, definitely not, but we know that. Still, if you work with human beings, you have to just take the things you get.”

Reflecting on Liverpool’s history of closely contested title races under his leadership, particularly in 2022 when they went undefeated for months alongside City before narrowly missing out on the title, Klopp emphasized the significance of the Premier League table after all 38 matchdays.

“People will tell us we need to chase goal difference, but that doesn’t happen on purpose. You don’t go into a game and want to score eight goals.

We are who we are, we are how we are, and that’s why we are in the race, so I’m absolutely fine with that. I knew it would be super tricky until the end,” Klopp stated.

Despite Arsenal’s current lead, Klopp remains focused on his team’s performance and their position at the end of the season, affirming, “We were top; now it’s Arsenal… We want to be there after the last matchday.”
