Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe has labelled Liverpool a “machine” as they charge towards the Premier League title at a speed never seen before.

Reports at the beginning of November linked Liverpool with a £215m move for the Frenchman, suggesting that the Reds’ lack of transfers this summer meant that the money was ready to spend in 2020.

Jurgen Klopp poured cold water on the claims at the time and claimed it would be difficult for “any club” to buy Mbappe from PSG.

Liverpool have raced into a 16-point lead at the top of the Premier League this season, only dropping two points all season and Mbappe has hailed Klopp‘s “machine”.

“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.”

Mbappe has been heavily linked with Spanish giants Real Madrid over the last year but the France international says he’s just concentrating on PSG.

“Everyone talks about it – when I was young I talked about it too,” said Mbappe. “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.

“Now I’m with PSG and I’m 100% with the club. I want to help the club grow this season, to win a lot of titles, so for me it’s not good to talk about [my future].

“I think about the club because the club helped me. I came here at 18. I was a talent but I was not a superstar. Now I’m a superstar, thanks to PSG and the French national team.

“I have to stay calm and stay focused on PSG. After that, at the end of the season, we will see. But now I’m focused on my game.”
