Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists a six-point lead at the top of the Premier League means nothing at the halfway stage of the season.
The Reds have been installed as the new title favourites after they comfortably beat Newcastle 4-0 and Manchester City lost for the second successive match, going down 2-1 at Leicester.

Liverpool’s next two matches are at home to Arsenal and away at City, where Klopp’s side will arrive still top of the table irrespective of their result against the Gunners.
Klopp, however, is refusing to look too far ahead as City began December top, two points clear with a goal difference 14 better than Liverpool, but head into their final match of the year third, seven behind Klopp’s side having seen their goal difference advantage reduced to zero.
“That means nothing. We play Arsenal and City,” he said of their six-point lead over Tottenham, who have taken over second place from Pep Guardiola’s side. “I had no idea how any other teams were playing, I didn’t even know where they were playing.
Afterwards, I got the results and I can say it didn’t do a lot for me. It is just information. “It’s good that we have six points than other teams, or seven, but that is pretty much all.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
