Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp taking nothing for granted

Bournemouth have endured a tough run of results, with Saturday's 2-0 victory over Brighton only their second win in eight Premier League games.

Manchester City are now four points of league leaders Liverpool and will need to return to winning ways to pile the pressure on the Reds at the top of the table.

Nevertheless, with the FA Cup to add to their schedule next month and a blockbuster Champions League showdown against Bayern Munich to come in February, Klopp thinks it would be foolhardy to rule out doing business when the window opens.

"Just two points behind City now, they are playing with the swagger of a side who believe they can stop Liverpool and City and go the whole way this time".

A lot was said about Salah earlier on in the season as some tried to explain why he had endured a slow start to the season.

'In the summer, there will be people who say it's the best time for me to go if we win something because we will never win anything again, there will be other people who say I have to go if we don't win anything.

"I know the game doesn't work like that - you bring in one player, it doesn't improve unless the rest do as well".

"I don't think for a second about January and February, I only think about Newcastle".

Mauricio Pochettino insists Tottenham will not be distracted by speculation linking him with Manchester United as they are focused on becoming genuine title challengers.

"In this moment it looks quite positive, but only in this moment, we have to make sure it stays like this".

Pep Guardiola ends the calendar year with his Manchester City side embroiled in what has suddenly become a thrilling title race for the first time in his Premier League managerial career.

Everton played more than OK in the first few minutes, then they hit pretty much everything and it was impressive what Tottenham did. They also have a comfortable lead of 5 points over 4th place Chelsea. No decision is made.

"Nobody should feel out of the title race". It's just a fantastic football team.

"I'm very happy with the players I've got but I've always said, you don't know", Liverpool's German coach said as he prepared for Wednesday's home game with Newcastle. Arsenal going unbeaten in 2003-04 was a freak and with 20 games to go there is still much to play for.

"This time a year ago pretty much nobody was in the race, so this is good for supporters".
