Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp claims being top of the Premier League is the furthest thing from his mind after the Reds played a goalless draw with Newcastle on Wednesday night.
Klopp’s side are currently leading the league table with 3 points ahead of second-placed Manchester United who have played a game less than the Reds.
The draw against Newcastle was the second draw in a row for Jurgen Klopp’s side as they also played a 1-1 draw with West Brom.
“The last thing I’m thinking about is our position in the table at the moment,” he said on Amazon Prime.
“It’s nice but it doesn’t mean anything.
“We drew now the last two games and are still top of the table in a very difficult season, it just shows how difficult this season is for everybody.
“Other teams won, maybe last night, but we are in a good mood, as good as possible.
“Like we say, if life gives you lemons, make lemonade. That’s how it is and that’s what we try to think all the time.”
“We’ve found a lot of solutions today in the game,” Klopp added. “Created chances, crazy chances, unbelievably big chances, didn’t take them, it’s true, that’s why it’s 0-0.
“I liked the game. There are different draws in your life and this is one that we’re not happy about the result, obviously, but I’m really fine with the performance.
“Because that’s the way we have to play, that’s the way we have to create, that’s the way we have to protect.
“We did all that so, still of course disappointing, but it is what it is.”
