LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Liverpool is well placed to end a frustrating 28-year wait for the top-flight title, but manager Juergen Klopp says he will be quick to make a move in next month’s transfer window if his squad suddenly needs reinforcing.
Klopp’s side is four points in front of second-placed Manchester City after 18 of 38 Premier League matches as it looks to become champion of England for the 19th time, second only to Manchester United’s haul of 20.
“I’m very happy with the players I’ve got but I’ve always said, you don’t know,” Liverpool’s German coach said as he prepared for Wednesday’s home game with Newcastle. “I’ll keep the door open.
“If some things happen, then we need to have a look. A monstrous number of games are coming up. It is really important that we can react. If something dramatically changes, we will need to have a look but if nothing happens, then we will not do anything.”
