Jurgen Klopp Looked Like He Was About To Tear Up As He Conceded Title Race Is Over

An emotional Jurgen Klopp conceded that the title race has gone for Liverpool after a 3-1 loss to Leicester City.

The Reds surrendered a 1-0 lead and conceded three times in seven minutes to succumb to their sixth Premier League defeat of the season.

It leaves them in fourth position, 13 points behind leaders Manchester City, who also have a game in hand against Everton in midweek.

And without even having a proper celebration with the supporters for last season's historic title win due to COVID-19, Klopp feels his side are no longer in the race after recent results.

He was asked in his post-match press conference and the German, who recently lost his mother, looked like he was about to burst into tears.

"Yes. I can't believe it but yes," an emotional Klopp told the reporter.

He continued: "I don't think we can close the gap this year to be honest. We have to win football games and big parts of our football today was again really good.

"We have to avoid mistakes, avoid misunderstandings, we cannot avoid mistakes from VAR or stuff like these but all the rest, we have to avoid.

"Today, two situations we didn't do that so that's how they could score two goals."

Liverpool, having strolled to the title last year, now face a fight to secure Champions League football for next season.

Chelsea and West Ham are both just a point behind going into their next fixtures, with Everton only three points off their Merseyside rivals ahead of an upcoming meeting at Anfield.
