Jurgen Klopp has huge Liverpool message ahead of Manchester City game!
Jurgen Klopp has told his Liverpool players that they need to be brave against Manchester City.
Jurgen Klopp’s side hold a six-point lead over City after 11 games, but with heightened attention on Anfield, they enter a pivotal period of travelling and a heavy schedule.
Klopp has routinely said it – November and December could be the most difficult months in Liverpool’s season as the Germans side look to stay unbeaten against arguably the most dangerous side in the Premier League, and ahead of the big game, Klopp has told his players that they need to be brave against Pep Guardiola’s side.
“It’s a big game, two really good teams facing each other at Anfield, under the floodlights,” Klopp said on the Sky Sports website.
“The last three games we played 0-0 at home, then lost 2-1 at the Etihad where we nearly scored a goal and then the last one was a draw in the Community Shield, before we lost the shootout.”
“It will be a good football game – I’m not sure whether it will be just from a coaches and tactical point of view or a spectacle one for supporters.
“But everything is on a plate and no one hides anything, we cannot only be offensive but you have to be brave against Manchester City – even for a point.”
“We have to play our best game and everybody in the stadium has to be in absolutely top shape,” Klopp urged.
“The guys that sell the hot dogs have to be in top shape, everyone from the first second, get in the stadium, wait for the team to warm-up and be there.
“That is what I wish for – that before we even know whether we are going to get something that we invest all our emotions for the game and let’s play football.”
