Liverpool are 14 points behind leaders Chelsea but Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool are not as far behind as the Premier League table suggests.
Klopp believes Liverpool’s Premier League games against Chelsea this season show Liverpool are not far behind Chelsea.
“You have to look at the games we played against Chelsea. We were not worse by whatever it (the points gap) is at the moment. That is for sure,” Klopp said as quoted on Daily Star.
“We will all have a different season next year. Chelsea deserved the title but they had most luck with injuries.
“Diego Costa? Did he miss one game? Eden Hazard, one game? Pedro could play, Willian could play, their defensive line could play. You need this luck.
“I don’t say we could have challenged but the gap could have been closer.”
