Jurgen Klopp praised Premier League's strength: “toughest in world”

Jurgen Klopp praised the Premier League’s strength after Liverpool’s record-breaking unbeaten run came up short of giving them a lead at the top of the standings. The Reds had a club-record run of 25 undefeated league games, which was stopped by West Ham before the international break. Despite their incredible form, they are fighting for the fourth position and might lose it to Arsenal if they fail to win on Saturday.

When informed of this before the game, Klopp couldn’t help but laugh, stating that his team’s current circumstance is ideal proof of the Premier League‘s true strength. “The Premier League is the toughest in world football,” he said in his latest press conference. “This league is unbelievable. Very exciting, absolutely – I can see that even though I am but yes, of course, it increases the pressure as well.”

“Yeah, you have to break records to win things. When I was in Germany people spoke about the best league in the world – some people thought it may be Germany. No, it’s not. It could be Spain; maybe there were times it was Italy but for a few years now for sure it is the Premier League.”

“There is no doubt about that. It is not a competition to see which is the strongest league, it is just how it is; the amount of world-class players in this league is absolutely incredible.” Losing at Arsenal on Saturday would be a massive setback, but Klopp pushed his Liverpool players to react and correct the mistakes they made against West Ham.

“I’m not into record-chasing but if it happens it is always a good sign – but we have set different records in the past and then things went the other way,” he said. “Completely independent of the West Ham result, even after 25 games unbeaten we always knew we had to work on things, like keeping the ball better, pressing better, decisive challenges… we have to improve in that area. But each defeat is good after you get over it. A defeat is important information, and you always want to see, and you always have to show, a reaction to different things. That is what we try to show.”
