Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool manager calls title talk 'crazy'

Liverpool are unbeaten in five games under Jurgen Klopp in all competitions

Talk of Liverpool challenging for this season's Premier League title is "crazy", says manager Jurgen Klopp.

The German recorded his first league win since taking over at Anfield when his side beat defending champions Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge.

The result pushed Liverpool into seventh place in the table.

"Are you crazy? You think after one win at Chelsea we should think about this?" he replied when asked about his team's title aspirations.

"I've been here three weeks, round about," said the former Borussia Dortmund manager, who succeeded Brendan Rodgers following the sacking of the Northern Irishman in early October.

Klopp applauds 'perfect' Liverpool goals

"We don't think about this. We have to think about the next game, about improving our game and our style. We can do much better than today."

Liverpool's win - their first in four league outings - came after they had fallen behind to a strike from Ramires in the fourth minute.

Philippe Coutinho equalised on the stroke of half-time, before adding a second after the break with Christian Benteke sealing the win on 83 minutes.

Klopp added: "We had our moments - our build-up with short passes was very good. They tried to make pressure but we could play in the spaces in between.

"I feel[the win] is deserved. We have worked hard but it's normal if you want to win in Chelsea."
