Klopp content but wants more

02 September 2018 02:58:14 EST

Jurgen Klopp says that both he and his Liverpool players know that there is plenty of improvement to come from them, despite four wins out of four in the Premier League.

The Reds maintained their perfect start to the campaign with a 2-1 victory at Leicester City, with the Merseysiders having already seen off West Ham, Crystal Palace and Brighton.

Having 12 points and knowing you can and must improve is good.

However, head coach Klopp was far from getting carried away by such a start to the season and is aware that further improvement is both possible and necessary to remain firmly in the Premier League title shake-up.

He said after victory at the King Power Stadium: "If somebody had told me four weeks ago that you will have 12 points from four games, then I would buy it.

"Having 12 points and knowing you can and must improve is good.

"Result-wise it could not have been better. Performance-wise, we know we can improve and we really know that we could have already done better.

"Again, the start (at Leicester) showed how good we can be but it's still early in the season - so we are not 100 per cent stable in these situations to do the right things constantly."

Following the international break, Liverpool face a truer test of their title credentials when they visit Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday 15th September.

Last season the Reds suffered a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Spurs at Wembley, one of just five defeats during the league season - all of which came away from home.

Liverpool are 11/8 to defeat Tottenham this time around and are 9/1 to win the game 2-1, with Klopp's side 9/4 to be crowned Premier League champions come the end of the season.
