Klopp said (via Sky Sports): “It is possible, not likely but possible. That is enough.

“Of course, it is unlikely because City plays at home against Aston Villa, who play only on Thursday. It will be tough against Burnley, they fight for survival.

“But it is football. I think the time when City became champion [in 2019] it was because of 11 millimetres. If someone wants us to be champion then we have to win first and Aston Villa needs to get a point at City.”
