'Unlikely', Klopp assesses Liverpool's title chances after Southampton win

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted his side's chances are 'unlikely' following 2-1 victory over Southampton on Tuesday evening. 

The Reds found themselves trailing inside 19 minutes of play at St Mary's thanks to Nathan Redmond's early goal. However, Takumi Minamino grabbed the leveller before Joel Matip headed home the winning goal in the 67th minute. 

Liverpool host Wolves at Anfield, while City play Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium but Klopp insists Pep Guardiola's men remain on course to win the Premier League title once again.

"Of course, it is unlikely because City play at home against Aston Villa, who play only on Thursday. It will be tough against Burnley, they fight for survival," he responded when asked if he still rates Liverpool's title chances as unlikely. 

"But it is football. I think the time when City became champion [in 2019] it was because of 11 millimetres. If someone wants us to be champion then we have to win first and Aston Villa need to get a point at City."

"It is possible, not likely but possible. That is enough."
