Liverpool boss Klopp: Eight teams can win Prem this season

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes as many as eight teams can win the Premier League this season.

The Reds, the defending champions, currently sit in third place.

"Eight clubs can win the Premier League, and I have no problem with an open match for the championship. It does not bother me in any way that the championship can probably be won with fewer points than in recent seasons," Klopp told MailOnline.

"If we win the championship this time, it will be a great achievement. Maybe bigger than last season. That's what I love about the Premier League, that there are so many involved in the championship match.

"Our own start has not been so bad. Yes, we had a special match against Aston Villa, but maybe we needed that match. We have used it well."
