Liverpool are not getting carry away with their performance and position on the premier league table.
After Manchester City and Arsenal were held by Middlesbrough and Tottenham respectively, the Reds shot to the top of the table. Liverpool beat Watford six goals to one with a scintillating performance.
They tore the Hornets to shreds with two goals from Sadio Mane and one each for Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho, Emre Can and Georginio Wijnaldum completing the rout.
But despite the result, the league table and Liverpool’s impressive recent form, Klopp says he’s not getting ahead of himself just yet. “If someone thinks being one point ahead after 11 match days is a big sign for the rest of the season, I can’t help this person,” he told reporters.
“We will stay cool. It’s the best position I can imagine but we didn’t speak one word about possibility of going top before the game.”
Liverpool extended their unbeaten league run to nine matches and have now scored 30 goals in 11 games, but although he’s happy with the form, Klopp recognises the threat of others.
Liverpool attempted 27 shots against Watford. “The only thing you can do is work and stay concentrated; a lot of things can happen in the next weeks and months,” he said.
“There is no pressure after 11 match days, absolutely no pressure. We saw Chelsea playing yesterday – quite impressive. We saw Manchester City playing Barcelona – quite impressive. Manchester United – never write them off. Tottenham are a very good side.”
