Klopp at the pre-match conference before New castle united talked about Spurs match against Everton and said, ‘I saw the game yesterday against Everton,’ Klopp said at his pre-match press conference ahead of facing Newcastle. ‘Of course, with the goal which didn’t count, and then the first goal of Tottenham was a situation that Tottenham obviously needed because Everton played absolutely more than okay in the first couple of minutes.
‘But then they hit pretty much everything and it was really impressive how Tottenham did. That same can happen or will happen to Chelsea, to Arsenal, all that stuff. ‘There is no decision made, that’s how it is. Why should it be that nobody can feel safe, nobody should feel out of the race, whatever. It’s just not the time to think about it actually. ‘And, for me, [Tottenham] were never out [of the race] – so why should I be surprised they are in now again? Liverpool will be top of the Premier League table at Christmas for just the third time.
‘It’s just a fantastic football team. I’ve said a few times, for me Tottenham had the most difficult summer period and I don’t talk about not signing players – because if you have the right team why should you sign players? ‘It’s just because eight or nine players played the full World Cup nearly and playing so far such a season is more than impressive. ‘So a lot of teams are in what you call the title race and that’s the way it should be. And that’s maybe the only difference to last year when pretty much no-one was in it and that’s good for all supporters.’
Spurs are being praised by legends and critic for their recent run of form but will have to strive to keep the form running and play good football to delight the fans and critics. Spurs face Bournemouth at home while Liverpool face Newcastle United.
