Jurgen Klopp has hailed Manchester City as the best team in Europe at the moment. The German manager claims Pep Guardiola’s side is defending well, but also hopes the Anfield crowd will turn the game in the Reds’ favour.
The Liverpool manager spoke to the media ahead of their game against the Cityzens, praising his upcoming opponents for beating Chelsea in the Premier League last week.
Liverpool will take on Manchester City at Anfield this week and Jurgen Klopp is not taking the game lightly. The former Borussia Dortmund manager said:
“We need to play a good football game to have a chance, but it’s Anfield. We’re really looking forward to the game. We’re at a good time, that’s what you need to be to have a chance against them. me “They are the best team in Europe. Last weekend they played (and beat) Chelsea, which is good, but City were clearly better that day. We have to defend at the highest level to stay in the game and make sure the goals we score make the difference… You have to be brave, play up front, be bold at times, really be your best version. Only then do you have a chance.”
Liverpool and Manchester City so far in the Premier League
Liverpool are the only club unbeaten in England’s top division and will try to keep it that way. They are at the top with 14 points from 6 games.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have dropped points twice this season with a draw against Chelsea and Brentford. They have also beaten AC Milan in the Champions League and have been exceptional in all the big games.
Manchester City did not make the best start in the Premier League this season, as they lost their opening game against Tottenham. However, since then they have only dropped points once and have 13 points from their first 6 matches.
Pep Guardiola’s side suffered a defeat this week when they faced Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. They weren’t at their best, but they’ve made it to the big games so far.
