Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp sends out title warning ahead of 2020/21 Premier League season

Liverpool secure Premier League glory

Liverpool, of course, dominated the English top-flight in 2019/20.

Jurgen Klopp and co. came agonisingly close to clinching their first-ever Premier League title in 2018/19, but missed out to Manchester City by a single point.

Liverpool would have no such issues this time around, though, blowing City and all other potential challengers out of the water.

In fact, even after a fairly average close to the campaign, the Merseysiders still managed to garner a staggering 99 points in the Premier League.

This total marked a club record for Liverpool, and came as the 2nd-highest points total in Premier League history – only bettered by Manchester City’s centurions in 2017/18.

Liverpool also equalled/broke a number of Premier League records in 2019/20, including winning 18 successive matches, claiming 32 victories and amassing 55 points from a possible 57 at home.

Liverpool looking to attack Premier League title

Now, though it only feels like a short time ago since Jordan Henderson lifted Liverpool’s first league title in 30 years, the 2020/21 Premier League season is of course just around the corner.

And whilst Liverpool blew any and all competitors out the water at the last time of asking, you would imagine it will be a lot tougher this time around.

Chelsea have already made a number of huge signings, which you should help them in their pursuit of the Premier League.

Manchester City will no doubt come back stronger next term having already signed two new players whilst Manchester United, since the addition of Bruno Fernandes, look a much tougher nut to crack.

However, Jurgen Klopp has recently sent out something of a warning any side aiming to dethrone the Reds.

Speaking in his pre-Arsenal press conference, the German stated Liverpool will not try to defend their current title but instead attack the next one:

“That’s why we said we will not try to defend it, we will try to attack the next one. That’s the truth.

“Then you don’t change at all your approach because that’s what we always did, and there’s no reason for changing it. You don’t keep a title forever, it’s always open for everybody so that means we don’t have really to think about it.

“The points tally is nothing, we didn’t think after 97 we will go above that – and we did it anyway. We didn’t think one day, maybe after lockdown when we finally won the league, then maybe people thought about it and realised it’s now really tricky to get all these points. There were a lot of points out there to get; we didn’t get them all but ended up anyway with 99, which is good. We really never thought about it, so we don’t need that as motivation.

“And we know it will be a difficult season and not because we were champions last year or something like that, just because football improvement, as long as you play, never stops. So, everybody can improve.”
