Liverpool May Have Advantage In Premier League Title Challenge- Gundogan

Ilkay Gundogan has suggested Manchester City’s pursuit of four trophies could hand Liverpool an advantage in the Premier League title race. City, who can return to the top of the table on Wednesday with victory over Everton, are still competing in the Champions League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup, while the Reds have only the Champions League to consider. Gundogan compared the situation to his time under Jurgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund, in which they won the Bundesliga title over Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich in 2012 while playing from Saturday to Saturday. “Maybe it’s going to be an advantage for them (Liverpool), I don’t know,” the Germany midfielder said. “It’s nothing we can change right now. They have to play their games and we have to play ours. “When you have to run in the season you don’t think about much things; you go out and play. When you have no concerns in your mind, you are able to win a lot of times. That’s how I felt when we were able to win at Dortmund – that title. “We had an advantage of just playing Saturday, Saturday, Saturday, and the week off in between. He [Klopp] is in a similar situation now with Liverpool – just the Premier League and then the Champions League on top. “Klopp didn’t win as much as Pep won – that’s why it was quite surprising when he was able to win two titles in a row with Dortmund in Germany. I just joined them for the second one. “[Klopp and Guardiola] are different in terms of playing style and their characters, but both of them are great people – great human beings that I really like.” Photo Credit: Getty
