Title Race Now Over After Leicester Defeat – Klopp

Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that the Reds are now out of the title race after the 3-1 loss to Leicester City.

Salah gave Liverpool the lead at the King Power Stadium before Maddison scored a stunning free kick to restore parity for the hosts.

Alisson’s error allowed Vardy to tap into an empty net and Harvey Barnes completed the victory with a close range finish to condemn Liverpool to their third consecutive loss in the Premier League.

Klopp has now conceded defeat in the title race after another abject performance.
Klopp said: “I don’t think we can close the gap. We are not worrying about the title, we are not silly.”

“We have to win football games and big parts of the football were really good,” said Klopp, whose side lost a third consecutive league game for the first time since November 2014.

“We scored a great goal but conceded a strange one and I think it’s offside, and the [goal for] 2-1 is a misunderstanding. That had too big an impact on the game. We had to show a different reaction, and the third we gave away too easily.”

“We have to avoid mistakes and misunderstandings. Today we didn’t do that. The rest of the game was really good. First we have to perform again – results are massively related to the performance.”

Klopp guided Liverpool to their first ever Premier League title last season.
