Klopp says Liverpool not feeling pressure of title race

Juergen Klopp says title race pressure is not "there yet" as Liverpool went eight points clear in the Premier League after beating Man City.

SHOWS: LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND, UK (NOVEMBER 10) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL MANAGER, JUERGEN KLOPP, ON IF THE TEAM IS FEELING THE PRESSURE, SAYING: "We were today completely focused on this game and not the situation in the table or whatever.

How many points we are ahead of City or whatever.

That's crazy.

Nine points you cannot imagine something like this happen.

But it's not important because who wants to be first in early November?

You want to be first if then in May not early November so that's, we all know that but we don't have to say that because it's anyway clear.

We just try what we can and in the end we will see what happens.

But the pressure or whatever is not there yet.

It will come but in the moment it's just (the) opportunity and go for it, do the work, throw all in what you have and then let's see what happens." STORY: Liverpool opened an eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League with an emphatic and hugely impressive 3-1 win over defending champions Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday (November 10).

The victory leaves unbeaten Liverpool on 34 points from 12 games, eight ahead of Leicester and

Class="kln">Chelsea, and nine in front of Pep Guardiola's fourth-placed City.

Despite his side's position, manager Juergen Klopp insists the team is not yet feeling the pressure and said that being the league leaders in November is not important.
