Klopp names three teams he expects to challenge Liverpool for title next season

Jurgen Klopp expects both Manchester clubs as well as Chelsea to challenge his Liverpool side next term as they bid to retain the title.

The German led the Reds to a first league success in 30 years sparking wild celebrations on Merseyside.

Liverpool have been unchallenged for almost the entire season and could break the record for points acquired in a season.

But Klopp does not expect them to cruise to the title again next season and believes they could have a three-pronged challenge heading their way.

He said: “City will be strong next season, United will be strong next season, Chelsea will be strong next season.

“The three of them, it’s obvious – City is just an outstanding team, United are in outstanding shape, Chelsea are in really good shape and is doing some interesting business.

“ Tottenham will not sleep, Arsenal will not sleep, Leicester will be there. The thing is, we have to play 38 games and who wins most of them can win the league.

“That happened now for us the first time, so we will not defend the title next year we will attack the next one.

“That will be difficult enough but we are in the same situation as other teams, it’s just what we achieved last week is something for the history books. We will try again to show that already tomorrow night.”

Manchester City host Liverpool in what will be their first game as champions.

The Reds lost this fixture last term but will be keen to underline their domestic dominance.

Klopp however won't be able to add the FA Cup and Carabao Cup to his collection with the Blues already knocking them out of the former and City again winning the latter.
