Klopp Hails ‘Focused’ Liverpool After Man City Win

Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola do battle again this Sunday

"Last year's performance of City at Liverpool was probably the biggest show of respect I ever got, that one of my teams ever got, because they played different to what they usually do", said Klopp.

Jürgen Klopp insists Liverpool will block out all the noise surrounding the weekend's high-profile clash with Manchester City and firmly focus on doing what's necessary to secure the win.

"We have to play them [Man City] again and we don't care about the table or whatever, we just try to do the right things in the specific games and if we can do that, then we are good but we need the boys for that and we have to hope they stay fit".

Guardiola's confidence is well earned having spent the majority of his playing and coaching career at the top of the tree, with trophy-laden spells at Barcelona, Bayern Munich and now City.

"In the last 10 or 15 minutes, City scored a goal and it gave them momentum and belief and they controlled the game, but in the other 75 minutes, we controlled the game with our intensity".

Anfield on Sunday thinking I'm going to lose the game.

"I am so proud of my team, more than ever. That's the only way I believe we can do it, not just at Anfield but all the stadiums around the world".

When asked by Sky Sports whether the game was more of a must-not-lose scenario for his team, the boss said: "I'm sorry, maybe there are other people who are smarter than I am and see it like this!" "Must win", I never understood because that doesn't change the chances. I don't see it like this.

"For me he's the best manager in the world and we have the chance to win against his team which is very hard but possible". Then after that we will see how the situation is and use that situation. Therefore, we've rounded up everything you might have missed from yesterday into one place. The whole world will be watching and I'm looking forward to it. I can only explain my periods here when we play there.

"It will be tight, and the first half could be a tactical chess match, but I'm backing City to nick this one and blow the title race wide open".
