Champions League! Liverpool Boss Jurgen Klopp Reveals His Game Plan To Beat Manchester City


Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has said
his aim is for his team to play a good
game against Manchester City in
Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-
final clash at Anfield.
Klopp also said he want his team to make
life ‘unpleasant’ for City.
Klopp’s men are the only team that have
defeated Pep Guardiola’s side 4-3 in the
Premier League this season.
The Reds’ boss is confident of once again
getting the better of Guardiola’s men.
The former Dortmund manager has outlined
his intent to press high and try to rattle the
runaway Premier League leaders.
“We have a lot of things Man City don’t like.
That’s the reality,” Klopp told UEFA.
“The way we attack the opponent, the way
we defend high is unpleasant. If we do that
well they will have some difficulty coping
with it.
“I think there will be plenty of coaches,
young coaches all over the world, watching
these games in order to find a solution for
how to play well defensively, and by doing
that also giving yourself the chance to
become dangerous on the attack against the
best teams like Barcelona, and also Man City
at the moment. It will be very exciting.
“There’s no guarantee this will work, in the
end it’s the lads on the pitch who will
decide the game. But it will be no surprise
if there is magic on the right and left sides,
and that we’ll always be on the left when
the ball is on their right, and on the right
when the ball is on their left.
“The thing is that this is actually
predictable, but unfortunately, at the very
highest level, it will happen with great pace
and [with] the best technical skills executed
by the players’ legs in this case.
“The pace and wit of the game, it will be
very thrilling, no doubt about that, but we
still have a few days left to prepare.
“You have to be courageous, take the
initiative, do your thing and, whenever they
have the ball, be very compact and very
quick. So from a football perspective, this is
definitely a very interesting clash.”
