Klopp on top-four race, City and Guardiola

17th March 2017

Jürgen Klopp previewed Liverpool’s trip to Manchester City at Melwood this afternoon, with the manager addressing a number of topics ahead of the Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium.

The Reds boss provided a general injury update, revealed Jordan Henderson could return for the Merseyside derby after the international break and discussed the form of Philippe Coutinho.

Emre Can’s contract negotiations were also covered, as Klopp offered his view on the race to qualify for the Champions League, Liverpool’s record against other members of the top six and the challenge City and Pep Guardiola will pose on Sunday.

Read on for a transcript of the manager’s thoughts on these subjects…

On the importance of Sunday’s game in the race for the top four…

These games are always important. Actually, I can’t remember a not-important game in the Premier League, to be honest. But I think we all know about the quality of Manchester City, probably a few people think they’re out of the Champions League now against Monaco, so… but I think the way they played was quite impressive. Monaco is an unbelievably skilled side, full of youth, talent and all that stuff. They were two wonderful games to watch actually, and City could’ve won easily in the second half of the last game, but because they’re human beings they missed a few chances too many so they’re out and that’s it. But the quality is really high, they’re in a good moment in the league, so I don’t think we go there as favourites and that’s a role that’s not too bad.
