EPL: Klopp names club to challenge Liverpool, Man City for title

Arsenal moved into fourth, just two points back, with a highly impressive 5-1 thrashing of Fulham earlier on Sunday to record their ninth straight win in all competitions.

Liverpool Manager, Jurgen Klopp has tipped Arsenal to challenge his team and Manchester City for this season's Premier League title.

Arsenal lost to Manchester City and Chelsea FC in their opening two Premier League fixtures to raise questions about Emery's ability to overhaul the Gunner side.

Any prolonged lay-off however would be a major blow for Liverpool as they look to keep up their flying start to the season and repeat their European heroics.

Klopp and his City counterpart Pep Guardiola were satisfied with their team's displays in a tight, tactical encounter which finished 0-0 at Anfield, but the German was clearly frustrated to now lose his players for worldwide duty.

"We have to start thinking about the players".

They certainly have not been as easy on the eye as in previous years but I don't think that will bother their manager Mauricio Pochettino too much.

"It's football", Guardiola said. It is important to give that pace, that up and down.

"Up and down they are the best team in the world". It is built for that.

"They are built for that, Jurgen (Klopp) is built for that. But now it is over so I can", said Klopp. "I am really happy with what the boys did".

"We already knew what we had to do if we want to compete to win something. It's just the fact of having someone like that in the squad to turn to when you feel you need that player". You can not defend over 95 minutes, 100 percent but I thought how we defended was brilliant.

However, there's no doubt that that the performance levels have been lower than what we've come to expect from this Liverpool side. Even when we won 3-0 at home and 4-3 at home, it was not like that. "They came as they champions and it was lucky they didn't score but also unlucky we didn't score either". Don't lose the ball in the wrong moment, otherwise you have big problems. We have to build something as a team.

I am expecting City and Liverpool to fight it out, with Chelsea the only other team who can challenge for the title - though for that to happen, a lot depends on Eden Hazard.

That made it a totally different game to their meetings last season. That is how they score goals. But this time, they failed to maintain their lead with a boring 0-0 draw. We had a little setback on Wednesday.

Of course, I did not expect to be saying that after only eight games. If would have defended today like we did against Napoli, it is 7-0. It was an unbelievably intense period of fixtures, crazy.

"It was a decision I made and hopefully it will be the last time I make that decision at that time". It was unbelievable, playing these teams, it is really hard.

The Spanish coach finished the love-in between himself and Klopp. I didn't speak with him. "We had a clear chance in the last action so we controlled quite well".

The game was easily one of the most anticipated of the season so far, although it failed to live up to expectations in that regard as the two teams cancelled each other out. "We had our chance".
