Jurgen Klopp has played down talks that Liverpool is ready to launch a Premier League title challenge.
Liverpool recorded a 2-0 win at Selhurst Park on Monday to move second in the Premier League table after two games, leaving them only behind defending champions Manchester City.
A second successive clean sheet, followed up by goals from James Milner and Sadio Mane, saw Liverpool state their case as potential league winners.
But Klopp feels it is far too early to talk about Liverpool potentially topping the table at the end of the season for the first time since 1989-90.
“It’s very early, to be honest, I couldn’t care less, it’s not important,” Klopp told Sky Sports when asked about Liverpool being tipped to make a title run. “We are not in a race with other Premier League teams.
“I wasn’t sure 100 percent we would score tonight.
“We must be difficult to play, and nobody should be happy to play us either at home or coming to Anfield, but we will see what happens at the end of the season.
“It’s too strong a league to discuss after two weeks, so we’ll leave that up to you to discuss.”
