Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has voiced his confidence in Arsenal's ability to defeat Manchester United at Old Trafford next month.

The German coach experienced a range of emotions as his team surrendered an early lead to fall behind 2-1, only to be rescued by Mohamed Salah's controversial penalty in the 84th minute.

While disappointed with the outcome, Klopp acknowledged the importance of securing a point at Old Trafford, especially after Kobbie Mainoo's stunning strike threatened to hand Erik ten Hag's United an unlikely victory.

The result led to a shift in the league standings, with Liverpool dropping to second place with 71 points, level with Arsenal but behind on goal difference, per Sports Brief.

Klopp explains why United will lose to Arsenal

Despite the tight race for the EPL title with seven games remaining, the 56-year-old made a noteworthy observation about one of their rivals.

He expressed confidence that Arsenal could secure a victory if Manchester United performed similarly to their display against his Liverpool side, according to GOAL.

During his post-match press conference, the German tactician was asked whether he would favour United to defeat the Gunners next month, to which he responded affirmatively.

"Probably. If we are still around, that would be great. But Arsenal is a good football team. If they [Man United] play like they did today, they [Arsenal] will win the game. I am 100% sure of that," Klopp said at the post-match presser via This is Anfield.

PSG boss weighs in on EPL title race

Sports Brief also reported that Paris Saint-Germain manager, Luis Enrique, has weighed in on his prediction for the winner of this season's Premier League title race.

The English top flight has evolved into a tightly contested three-way battle, with Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester City all vying for the coveted trophy.

As per the ex-Barcelona manager, although he hopes to see Arteta guide Arsenal to the title, it's difficult to discount City's chances of retaining the crown.
