Liverpool boss Klopp slams 'senseless' Nations League

Liverpool boss Klopp slams 'senseless' Nations League”

Georginio Wijnaldum believes that Liverpool need to embrace the intensity of the Premier League if they are to succeed domestically this season.

Liverpool started the game strongly and troubled Manchester City with their pressing but Pep Guardiola's team settled into the game after a few minutes and controlled the game for most of the first half.

"[After] 85 minutes, you obviously get a bit worn out, and that moment goes by in a split second and I made a decision to dive in, which is not what I would normally do". I watched the game on the flight back. But we have to make sure we manage it until the end of the season to keep it like this. It looks like they are in a good shape.

Klopp said players need a proper break to be fresher, pointing to the case of Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson who played for England at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Telegraph Sport correspondents assess how each of those five sides have performed so far, and ask which teams are best placed to mount a genuine title challenge and whose seasons will falter.

But my worry with Chelsea is where their other goals will come from if Hazard stops scoring as regularly, because their main strikers Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata are not exactly prolific.

Klopp said this following his side's Premier League 0-0 draw with City at Anfield on Sunday in the Premier League.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp thinks Chelsea - who won the title in 2017 - are being overlooked as contenders.

That made it a totally different game to their meetings last season. City were cautious but handled the opening ten minutes really quite well given the atmosphere and the ferocity of Liverpool's approach. "He's a coach who demands a lot from his players, not only in matches, but on a daily basis in training".

However, Riyad Mahrez failed to capitalize on it and blasted the penalty kick way above Alisson's goal.

Even so, City will view a point at Anfield as a positive result - it is certainly better than their defeat last season - and I am sure Klopp will see a draw in the same way.

Yet the Dutchman is adamant the real test is only just starting.
