World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe has heaped praise on Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side, amid transfer links with the Reds.
The Paris-Saint-Germain man has been linked with a move to Anfield in recent months, although Real Madrid are also said to be interested in taking the Frenchman to the Bernabeu.
Liverpool are 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League table, and have dropped just one point since the start of the season. The gap between Liverpool and Chelsea in fourth is 25 points.
Mbappe has been impressed by the Reds’ form this season.
“What Liverpool do in this moment is amazing,” Mbappe told BBC Sport. “They’re like a machine, they’ve found a rhythm and are like ‘we play again, we play again’.
“They’ve lost zero games. When you watch you think everything’s easy but that’s not easy. The guys are focused, they play games every three days and they win, they win, they win.
“Now the problem is that everybody watches Liverpool, and everybody watches what we can do against them, so now they have to show they are strong again but it’s a very good team with a very good manager.”
Despite the links away from Le Parc des Princes, Mbappe insists that his concentration is on helping PSG achieve success, which may come as a relief to Liverpool’s Premier League rivals including Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham.
“Everyone talks about it – when I was young I talked about it too,” he said.
“But now I’m a player and I know it’s not the moment.
“We are in January – it’s the money time of the season. Imagine I answer your question and say something. Everybody will talk about it and it’s not good for PSG.
