Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp described Manchester City as the best team in Europe, and said that his team will have to defend with full force in the match scheduled between them, Sunday, in the Premier League.
Klopp indicated that Manchester City will seek to make up for its loss this week in the Champions League against Paris Saint-Germain (0-2), stressing that the next confrontation at “Anfield” (Liverpool’s stronghold), will be different from last year’s meeting, which ended with the defeat of Liverpool. 1-4.
Klopp said in a press conference on the eve of the upcoming match: “We have to put in an appropriate performance to get a chance, but the confrontation will be at Anfield and we are really looking forward to the match.”
And the German coach added: “We are in a good position and this is what we must be in order to have a chance against them. For me they are the best team in Europe and they beat Chelsea last week, which is a good team.”
“We will have to defend with all our might to stay in the game and make sure that we score the goals that make the difference,” Klopp added.
With the approach of the international holiday that begins after the next round of Premier League matches, Klopp confirmed that he does not know anything about quarantine arrangements for players who will travel to their country to play international matches if they are on the British red list.
And Liverpool is the only team that has not known defeat so far in the English Premier League, and it is currently at the top of the standings with 14 points, one point ahead of “City”.
