Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has reacted to Manchester City’s 3-0 thrashing of Arsenal during the mid-week clash.

Liverpool may be set to win the Premier League this season, but Klopp has revealed that Manchester City’s victory over Arsenal highlighted the current strength of Liverpool’s Premier League title rival and he also pointed out that Manchester United and Chelsea will be back stronger next season, admitting that Chelsea are already leading the way in the transfer market.

“I don’t think it is possible to dominate anymore, to be honest,” the Liverpool head coach said ahead of this weekend’s Merseyside derby.

“United had a pretty good combination, with an exceptional manager with a super eye for players and fantastic timing for how long you need a player in the team.

“The replacements he [Ferguson] got were always exceptional — and there was the money, too. The combination for United was really good. We must have done something right, obviously, until now. But we have to do these things — and probably even more — to stay successful.

“And believe me, the others will not stop. United will strike back and Chelsea are on the front foot in the transfer market while no-one else has done anything because the times are so uncertain.”
