Champions League: Klopp predicts Liverpool's clash with Manchester City

  • Title win in derby not as important as beating Reds: Guardiola

Matip was the man in action against Crystal Palace on Saturday, with Lovren still working his way back to full fitness following a minor ankle injury, but the Cameroonian struggled with and without the ball. When the players are in position they move every millisecond in order to be available.

'After that we have Manchester United and after that you have Liverpool in the second leg.

"We know each other very well".

It's very exciting, It's the quarter finals of the Champions League and I've never played at this stage before.

But the clash is sandwiched between two games of even greater magnitude in the context of their season - a trip to Anfield on Wednesday and the second leg next week.

Firmino, Mane and Salah scored three goals in nine minutes to give the Reds a 4-1 lead and Guardiola believes his City players must handle the atmosphere better when they return for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

Klopp said: "Did we think before the first game we would lose 5-0? No". And the City boss admits his team didn't handle the atmosphere during their last encounter on Merseyside. We know it's going to be a big test against them, but these are the kind of games you want to be involved in, we will prepare right. The idea that they could watch their side playing some of the best football the English league has ever seen, alongside breaking record after record, and then, on top of that, they could see them take the title against their nearest rivals is just too ideal.

The German goalkeeper has started in all eight Champions League games for Liverpool this season, keeping 5 clean sheets while conceding a total of 6 goals.

"I thought: "Of course it had to be them" for a few reasons", Klopp told UEFA's official website. "Obviously if we don't make it, we don't make it, we will have a lot of chances left still, but to make it against United would be special".

"So they aren't an easy team to beat but we need to do so". We all have these game-changing moments in our lives and maybe that was one of them.

"They didn't know what to do". On Monday we will see and in these situations it is day by day. "The result is, most of the time, the outcome of what you have done".
