Beating Them Is Virtually Impossible Says Premier League Boss on Liverpool

My respect for the Championship grows every day, pretty much, it's such a hard league and he looks like he could do in that league what he wants.

"It probably says a lot about it (his character), but it was not my decision", Klopp explained at his Friday press conference.

The midfield three now being turned out on a regular basis by defending champions Manchester City - with Fernandinho in the defensive role and playmakers David and Bernardo Silva alongside him - is considered by many to be the most impressive midfield combination in the league, but Liverpool's depth and variety can certainly offer a challenge to Pep Guardiola's side.

For a player supposedly mired in a goal drought, Mohamed Salah added to his perfectly respectable season tally again on Wednesday night by finding the net in Liverpool's 4-0 drubbing of Red Star Belgrade.

"It's a great record and I'm very proud".

Choosing Liverpool to win, Liverpool to lead at half-time, Over 1.5 Goals and Cardiff to score Under 0.5 Goals would see us collect should the Reds lead at half-time and full-time by a scoreline of 2-0 or more without conceding. It's an exceptional number, hopefully he can continue. After that first session, I was convinced we had signed a star in the making.

"He was very good, very good", said Klopp of Fabinho who celebrated his 25th birthday on Tuesday.




"When I came in I built a players' committee".

"It was not because of injuries, but it was the right thing to do, having these players in those positions".

Shaqiri, born in Kosovo, was fined by Federation Internationale de Football Association for celebrating a World Cup goal with a gesture imitating a double-headed eagle, the Albanian national symbol, after scoring for Switzerland against Serbia.

The two Englishmen face stiff competition for a midfield place with the likes of Fabinho, Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri and Wijnaldum himself all vying for the midfield spots.

Klopp, asked if he was considering whether or not to take Shaqiri to the Serbian capital, said: "So far, I didn't think about it, to be honest".

"But it makes more sense to put responsibility on different shoulders".
