Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says talk of his side challenging for this season’s Premier League title is “crazy”.
The Liverpool new boss recorded his first league win since taking over at Anfield with an emphatic 3-1 win over defending champions Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday to compound Bles boss Jose Mourinho’s woes.
The victory saw Liverpool move into seventh place in the table, sitting eight points behind leaders Manchester City who sit above Arsenal on goal difference but the German believes title ambitions at the moment is unthinkable.
“Are you crazy? You think after one win at Chelsea we should think about this?” he replied when asked about his team’s title aspirations.
“I’ve been here three weeks, round about,” said the former Borussia Dortmund manager, who succeeded Brendan Rodgers following the sacking of the Northern Irishman in early October.
“We don’t think about this. We have to think about the next game, about improving our game and our style. We can do much better than today.
“We had our moments – our build-up with short passes was very good. They tried to make pressure but we could play in the spaces in between.
“I feel [the win] is deserved. We have worked hard but it’s normal if you want to win in Chelsea.” The Liverpool manager said on BBC Sports
Liverpool had fallen behind to a strike from Ramires in the fourth minute but Philippe Coutinho who was without a premier league goal in 710 minutes equalized on the stroke of half-time, before adding a second after the break with Christian Benteke sealing the win with seven minutes left on the clock.
