With just a point between Liverpool at the top of the table and Manchester City in the second position, Sunday’s Premier League clash is expected to be an interesting match.

The match may reshape the league table as the Cityzens will move to the top with a victory, while a draw could give Arsenal which sit at the third position the opportunity to become the league leader on a goal difference.

Like many football fans, Jurgen Klopp expects the match to be a tough one, admitting that City are a very good team and Liverpool are not bad either, therefore, they should let the two English giants show their prowess on the pitch.

“We have about 48 hours to prepare for it. We try to give the right info and I am excited about the game and that we can play it in the situation we are in. Much better than previous ones, we know we are good, we know they are good, so let’s play the game,” Jurgen Klopp challenges Pep Guardiola and his team during his pre-match press conference via Sportskeeda

Klopp identified Erling Haaland as a big threat to any opponent but claimed that his side need to defend very well because there are many talented players at City who can turn the game around even if Haaland’s threat was nullified.

“If you watch Haaland, he is smart. He has no battles with one defender, it is all different. He is smart enough to not be around the one defender he might consider as the best or not. I understand it but football doesn’t work like that anymore, man marking, we have to defend City.”

According to him, Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden, Rodrigo, and many other City players have what it takes to decide the outcome of a match.

“Van Dijk could nullify Haaland then [Phil] Foden fires the ball in or [Kevin] De Bruyne, Rodri, whatever. Just not possible. Virgil v Haaland, yes, it’s good but then [Manuel] Akanji on a set-piece or whatever. This game has got so many aspects.”
