Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool manager sends massive warning statement to Man City after Southampton win as the PL race goes down to the wire
Jurgen Klopp was in a jovial mood after Liverpool wrapped up a wonderful comeback win over Southampton at the St.Mary’s. Mohamed Salah ended his goal drought, making it 2-1 in favour of Liverpool with a world-class counter attack, before Jordan Henderson put the finishing touches on the game with a brilliant finish.
Having scored first, Southampton seemed to have been doing Man City a favour. But in the second half, Liverpool looked like that well-oiled side we had been witnessing all season.
In the post match interview, Jurgen Klopp was all praise for his team, praising their mentality in such a tough fixture and in such tough circumstances.
He touched upon the Salah goal, one that brought smiles to millions and millions of Liverpool fans all across the globe. Salah was asked if he should have passed it and he said passing that ball was never on his mind and Jurgen Klopp agreed with him, as he could see that Salah couldn’t have passed that ball to Firmino, because of the angle.
Towards the end of the interview, Jurgen Klopp spoke about how Liverpool were not going to play like City, just because the critics wanted them to. He sent a warning to City and all Liverpool critics, saying that Liverpool had their own style, something they are pretty good at and something that they won’t leave behind just because of a few naysayers.

Man City don’t play this weekend as they have an FA Cup Semi-Final to take care off and hence Liverpool will stay top of the table until the next gameweek.
With Champions League slated for this week, things could get rather interesting in the weekend after this one, as the title race seems as if it going to go right down to the wire.
