Second favourites tag does not concern Liverpool boss Klopp

Liverpool are currently the second favourites to win the Premier League title in May according to most bookmakers.

However, manager Jurgen Klopp is not paying much attention to the tag, and instead is focused on maintaining an optimistic mood around his team.

The Merseysiders are currently placed fourth in the league table with 13 points, having scored 16 goals in six matches, just two behind title favourites City.

Regarding the tag of second favourites, Klopp told Sky Sports' Monday Night Football: "It's not too important for me.

"It's better that we have something like an optimistic mood around. I think in this moment, Liverpool feels good.

"They've saw us playing, we had this very, very important game against Hull where everybody said 'maybe this is the last real issue they have – they cannot play against teams that defend deeper' or something, but we did it [won] in a really impressive way. But, for me, it's over – it's two days over.

"The next game is Swansea then we have the international break – I don't like the international breaks because the players are not here, I don't have them around and I have to wait until they play in different teams and styles, but then we have to carry on and we start [again] against Manchester United.

"Nothing has happened; we have done our job until now. We improved, of course, but that was important. I am fine with the moment, but not finally happy or something.

"It's all good, but could be better."
