Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool are behind Manchester City

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp states Manchester City are the best team on earth.
Liverpool are top of their Premier League table after an ideal start and are five points clear of reigning champions City.
However, Klopp believes City – that have averaged 99 points at the last two Premier League seasons – are superior to his Liverpool side.
„We may not be the best group in Europe because Manchester City will be the best group on earth – and that is precisely the same planet I’ve heard,“ Klopp said before Liverpool’s Champions League opener against Napoli.
„There are a great deal of good teams out there and also you need to prove that [you are up there with the finest ] always.
„Last year, people were really good. I’m not sure we were the best group in Europe, but we were really good in the perfect moments and that’s the reason why we won the Champions League.“
Liverpool beat Tottenham 2-0 in last year’s Champions League final to win their sixth name, however, Klopp says that his group will not feel helpless by heading into this season’s contest.
„We do not feel the burden because I really don’t know just how that should feel to be honest,“ said the German.
„It’s long ago. Three or four weeks. The issue keeps coming up regarding if groups will play differently against us. I don’t have any clue.
„I went into a Champions League season, winning the Champions League the year earlier, therefore we’ll experience that [collectively for the first time]. I hope we’re ready for this.“
