Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool are behind Manchester City

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp states Manchester City will be the best group on the planet.
Liverpool are five points clear of reigning champions City and are high in their Premier League table after a perfect start.
But Klopp believes City – that have averaged 99 points in the previous two Premier League seasons – are superior to his Liverpool side.
„We might not qualify as the best team in Europe because Manchester City will be the best team in the world – and that’s precisely exactly the same world I have discovered,“ Klopp said before Liverpool’s Champions League opener against Napoli.
„There are a whole lot of great teams out there and also you need to establish that [you are up with all the finest ] always.
„Last year, people had been really great. I’m not sure we were the best team in Europe, but we were very good in the proper moments and that’s the reason why we won the Champions League.“
Liverpool beat Tottenham 2-0 in last season’s Champions League final to win their sixth European title, however, Klopp says his team won’t feel burdened by heading into the competition of this season as winners.
„We do not feel the burden because I do not know exactly how that should really feel to be honest,“ said the German.
„It is long ago. Three or four months. The issue keeps coming up regarding whether teams will play differently against us. I have no clue.
„I went into a Champions League year, winning the Champions League annually earlier, thus we will experience that [together for the very first time]. I hope we’re ready for that.“
