Maurizio Sarri says Liverpool are “ready” to win the Premier League

28 September 2018

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri believes the time is right for Liverpool to win the Premier League title, praising Jurgen Klopp in the process.


The Reds take on Sarri’s side at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening, in one of the biggest league games so far this season.

Between them, they have dropped just two points in a combined 12 matches, with Liverpool still keeping their 100 per cent record in tact.

With every week that passes, the more Klopp’s men look they could go all the way this season, with belief growing all the time.

Man City remain the clear favourites to lift the trophy in May, but few Reds sides have been more well-equipped in the Premier League era.

Speaking in his press conference ahead of Liverpool’s visit, Sarri says there is no reason why the Merseysiders cannot go all the way and called Klopp one of the world’s best managers:

“It will be a very difficult match because they are a top-level team.

“They have worked with the same coach for four seasons and I think they are ready to win the Premier League. It’s very strange (that Liverpool haven’t won title since 1990) but the important thing is now they are ready.

“He (Klopp) is one of the best coaches in the world at the moment – he has worked very well with his players this season.

“As I said, now I think they are ready to win the Premier League and maybe the Champions League – something important.”

The weekend trip to Stamford Bridge will be Liverpool’s greatest test yet in 2018/19, as they look for a magnificent seven league wins a row.

The Reds have already managed to see off Crystal Palace, Leicester City and Tottenham on their travels, highlighting a new-found mental strength.

Three points in west London would be their biggest title statement yet, ahead of the visit of champions City a week on Sunday.
