• Anfield manager blames injuries to Sadio Mané and other key players
• Klopp: ‘Chelsea deserved it but they had most luck with injuries’
Jürgen Klopp has claimed the difference in quality between Liverpool and Chelsea is not as big as the Premier League table would suggest, although he says his team lack the “cold as ice” mentality of Antonio Conte’s leaders.
Chelsea are 14 points above third-placed Liverpool and will regain the Premier League title should they extend that gap to 17 with victory at West Bromwich Albion on Friday. Klopp accepts Conte’s team will be worthy champions – albeit while reiterating his belief that Chelsea had greater fortune with injuries than their rivals – but disputes the table provides an accurate gauge of their superiority over Liverpool.
