Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe believes Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are playing like a “machine” at this moment and time.

The Reds defeated arch-rivals Manchester United 2-0 at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday thanks to goals from Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah.

Liverpool now possess a 16-point lead at the top of the table with a game in hand, meaning it does look likely the Reds will claim a maiden Premier League title.

Under Klopp, Liverpool have won the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup within the past six months.

Liverpool’s recent form has seen Mbappe liken the club to a “machine”, which does highlight how big of a task it is for opposition teams that play against the Reds.

“What Liverpool do in this moment is amazing,” Mbappe told BBC Sport, as quoted by Sports Mole.

“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.”

It is always nice to hear praise from top players such as Mbappe. It means Liverpool are not going quietly.

Liverpool were hardly a topic of conversation for the top players before Klopp arrived, but that is no longer the case.

Although it is unlikely that Mbappe would ever sign for Liverpool, these comments do give one some hope.
