Jürgen Klopp has claimed Liverpool’s FA Cup exit does not hand his team an advantage in the title race despite Manchester City’s heavier workload.

Whereas Pep Guardiola’s second-placed team remain in both domestic cup competitions Liverpool have several free weeks ahead of league duties having exited the FA and Carabao Cups in the third round.

However, with several defensive injuries to contend with, Klopp maintains the schedule provides no clear advantage over their title rivals.

Liverpool also have a 10-day break before their Champions League last 16 first leg tie against Bayern Munich because of their departure from the FA Cup.

The Liverpool manager said: “There’s no advantage.

Klopp will have a week to prepare for Crystal Palace following Saturday’s visit to Brighton, then 11 days before hosting Leicester City at Anfield, plus five clear days before league fixtures against West Ham, Bournemouth and Manchester United.

You have to use the time and really be week in, week out the best shape we can be.” Dejan Lovren will be sidelined until after Palace’s visit on 19 January having sustained a hamstring injury in the Cup defeat at Wolves on Monday.
