Liverpool ensured Manchester City returned to the top of the table after a goalless draw at Goodison Park with Everton in a must-win needed clash.
The result means Liverpool who were once 7 points ahead of City have suddenly become runners-up with nine matches to end of the season.
Although, Klopp feels a little bit optimistic that the title race is still open despite his side’s poor performance against Everton, but that opinion may be viewed differently going by the quality of manager in charge of City.
Since Liverpool’s lost to City at the Etihad Stadium in January early this year, they have lost 11 points in all from 1 loss and 4 draws.
Sending signals that Liverpool may not be able to win the remaining of their last nine matches should City secure a draw too.
The character exhibited by Liverpool does not in anyway depicts the character of a champion, their finishing becoming poor and they showed this in their derby.
