Football: Klopp shrugs off 'Inevitables' tag ahead of Shrewsbury FA Cup tie

Jurgen Klopp has shrugged off the “Inevitables” tag as Liverpool take a break from their relentless pursuit of the Premier League title to focus on the FA Cup.,

Liverpool stretched their lead at the top of the table to 16 points on Thursday with a game in hand over nearest challengers Manchester City after scoring late to beat Wolves 2-1.

But the Reds boss again brushed off suggestions that it is inevitable Liverpool will win their first English league title for 30 years.
We couldn’t care less about these kinds of things,” Klopp said ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup fourth round tie at Shrewsbury.

“As far as I’m concerned I think we are not even mathematically qualified for the Champions League for next year so the only thing we can do is focus on the next football game.

“This is now Shrewsbury, then West Ham, then Southampton. Then we have a week off and then we start again. That’s the plan.

“I don’t know another plan so whatever you say about us, if it’s positive, thank you very much. If it’s negative, I don’t care.”

Klopp told reporters at his pre-match press conference on Friday (Jan 24) that the game at Wolves, won with a Roberto Firmino goal in the 84th minute, was a good example of Liverpool’s tough task.

“It was never easy, it was never going to be easy and we just need to fight as much as we can,” he said.

“That’s what the boys did last night again. That’s why we won the game. That’s the only thing we can do so it’s the only thing we are focused on.”
