Manchester City is the best team in the world and can win the quadruple according to Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp insists.

Pep Guardiola's men are at the top of the Premier League table again after their 2-0 victory over Cardiff on Wednesday. They are leading rivals, Liverpool, by one point with just six games left to play.

The Citizens haven't dropped any points in the league since the 2-1 defeat to Newcastle in January, winning eight games consecutively.

They already defeated Chelsea at Wembley to secure the Carabao, with the Leagur, FA Cup and Champions League still up for grabs.

Liverpool are City's main rival in the league and Klopp has admitted they are one of the best sides in the world.

Manchester City Can Win The Quadruple - Jurgen Klopp

"If you were watching from outside, you'd think it looks like City can win all four [trophies] and I think the same," Klopp said, ahead of Friday's trip to Southampton.

"City in the moment look like the best team in the world. That's how it is. Barcelona the other night [against Villarreal on Tuesday] struggled a little bit but still did the job [drawing 4-4].

"Juventus look pretty impressive in Italy but you don't exactly know how it will be in the Champions League. With City, those are the three big Champions League favourites.

"And you think, okay, City looks a bit more stable than all of them. But that doesn't mean that they will win all their games. I can imagine that people think that, but it doesn't make it more likely.

"How many people watch all 90 minutes of City games? They won 2-0 against Fulham, we won 2-1 against Fulham because we made a mistake that we usually don't make.

"I don't care, I don't bet, I'm not interested in odds. I'm just interested in our games and we cannot do more than win our games. We will try to win them with all we have.

"We were really happy after Sunday [beating Tottenham 2-1] but we knew pretty quick Southampton was the next challenge, then Porto [in the Champions League quarter-finals], then Chelsea, then Porto again.

"There is a lot to come and the only thing I can say is that we try everything to be really ready for that fight."

Liverpool travel to the South coast on Friday to face Southampton, while City do not play a Premier League until April 14. They are, however, involved in the FA Cup semi-finals against West Ham.
