Liverpool boss Klopp believes title race wide open this season

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes the title race is wide open this season.

Klopp has welcomed Pep Guardiola signing a new contract - but is convinced the battle for the title won't be limited to the Liverpool and Manchester City managers this season.

"I'm happy about Pep signing a new contract," he said. "But I'm a little bit afraid it won't be Guardiola against Klopp over the next few years as it looks like Frank (Lampard) and Chelsea are building a proper team there.

"Man United will not stay without trying and Arsenal will do the same and are in a good way as well.

"Tottenham look really dangerous this year. Leicester are obviously and 100% Wolves will not sleep.

"I'll have forgotten somebody, not because I'm being disrespectful but because I've seen the development of a lot of other teams and see the steps they make.

"I'm happy Pep is staying with me for longer!"
