Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says his side do not have to compete with Manchester City’s style as the two clubs battle at the top of the Premier League.
The Reds were not at their attacking best at Chelsea on Sunday but earned a 2-1 win to maintain their five-point lead over City at the top.
Pep Guardiola’s side, meanwhile, swept aside Watford 8-0 on Saturday.
This type of football not a lot of teams can play,” said Klopp.“But we play in our way, we try to win football games.“In the end we need to get the points, there is no competition in technical things, it is about the points.”
Klopp’s title pace-setters looked on course to win in comfort as Trent Alexander-Arnold’s magnificent free-kick and Roberto Firmino’s header gave them complete control at the interval.
