Jurgen Klopp has insisted that Liverpool do not have a realistic chance of winning a historic quadruple, and has claimed that his side are not favourites to win any more silverware this season.

The Reds have already triumphed in the Carabao Cup this term, and they are into the latter stages of the Champions League and FA Cup, while they currently sit just a point behind Manchester City in the Premier League.

However, Klopp believes his side should not be expected to add to their trophy haul in the coming weeks.

‘We are not favourites in one competition, that’s the truth,’ Klopp told former Liverpool forward Peter Crouch in an interview with BT Sport.

‘But, we are around and in and people think we can do it, it’s nice.’

Crouch then asked if Liverpool have a realistic opportunity of winning four trophies in a single campaign. Klopp’s response was emphatic, and he even stated that Pep Guardiola’s City side are on course for the treble instead.

‘No it’s not [realistic], and it never was. I don’t think anybody ever won the quadruple. In England not, and I don’t know if in any countries it ever happened.

‘You cannot plan it. The schedule makes it really difficult. If you are not in a league like 20 points ahead… that’s not too important anymore, but for us, we have to go for everything in each game, and that makes it really unlikely.

But we won the first competition, that’s why we are the only one who can win the quadruple, but City is probably favourite for the treble.

‘If we could win one other competition, it would be outstanding, and we don’t even know that yet,’ Klopp added.

Liverpool ended their 30-year wait for a league title in 2020, but had to celebrate at Anfield without fans due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

They look set to push City all the way this time around as they aim to make it two titles in three seasons.

The two teams will face each other in a potential title-decider on Sunday, with Liverpool knowing that they will leapfrog their rivals with a victory at the Etihad.

Klopp has revealed that he is desperate to win the Premier League again, but this time with fans allowed in stadiums, before he departs Liverpool.

‘Without supporters, it was still good, but I would like to have it once in my lifetime at Liverpool with supporters.

‘It would mean absolutely everything to us [to celebrate with fans],’ he said.
