Jurgen Klopp has admitted that the starts by both Manchester United and Manchester City have made their Premier League season’s start even more difficult for him as a manager of Liverpool.
Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho’s clubs have each won 4 games with 1 draw sitting dead equal at the top of the table both on points with 13 and also on the same goal difference of 14.
Liverpool are in 8th on 8 points so only 5 points in arrears and it is obviously still early doors in the season but Klopp needs a change from his team.
The Reds are without a win in their last 4 games, and were recently thrashed 5-0 by league leaders Manchester City.
City’s arch nemesis’ United have made an equally brilliant start to proceedings in the Premier League, as both sides sit at the top of the table with 13pts and 14 goal difference.
Liverpool on the other hand have won just two of their opening five games and sit 8th in the table. Klopp has recently spoken out about his anger towards the media’s portrayal of his team, and admits that both Manchester clubs’ fine form has made it even worst.
“Everywhere it’s the same but here a little bit more [expectation],” Klopp said.
“Obviously it’s difficult in this place not to be number one, even though they were not number one in the last 25 years.”
“Especially when the Manchester teams are flying, that makes it even more difficult but I cannot change this.”
“What I can do is cool the situation here down and do the right things again and work on the other things. That’s how it is always.”
“I only feel the difference when I meet you [the press], you are my public. When I meet you I know something is obviously really wrong.”

Klopp’s men face Leicester City once again this weekend, after the midlands side knocked them out of the League Cup in midweek. They will hope to put their poor form this month behind them, and get back to winning ways.
