He revealed he do not know how wide the gap is for Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea and Leicester when analysing the current battle in the table.
He added, it is not too big while acknowledging only seven games have gone down the lane.

Liverpool opened up an eight-point gap over Guardiola’s City on Saturday but the former Barcelona boss is not feeling too worried at this stage of the season.
In his statement, “all we can do is try to maintain our level and play better every game then see what happens.
“We are in the first days of October and we finish in May so there are a lot of games and competitions to play, a lot of different situations and good and bad moments to handle.”
