Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp accepts his Premier League leaders are currently at the centre of a “circus” but he insists it does not impact within the club.

They go into the weekend with an eight-point lead over defending champions Manchester City and face arch-rivals Manchester United on Sunday with a staggering 15-point advantage.

It means the Reds are strong favourites to equal City’s Premier League record of 18 successive victories and has led to many pundits naming their combined XIs without a single United player in them.

“When you make a combined line-up and have 11 players of Liverpool – it’s like a joke, like building a banana skin,” he said.

“The world at the moment is a circus and we are at the centre. I’m not influenced by it. I am 100 per cent sure of the strength of Man United.”
