Jurgen Klopp reassures Manchester City over Anfield bus fears

Jurgen Klopp reassures Manchester City over Anfield bus fears

The Premier League's top two sides are due to meet for the first time this season at the weekend, with six points now separating them in the table.

However, Klopp's record stands firm against Guardiola.

"Hopefully it will be an incredible game at Anfield for the Premier League, for all (the people) around the world and hopefully the same thing is not going to happen as what happened two seasons ago". It was a rotten game of football last time, but this is what tension does to the best of teams - City can not afford to lose it.

It has now been revealed that the player was, in fact, visiting Dutch royalty and he will be fine to play against Pep Guardiola's side.

The champions have also flagged up a social media post asking Reds fans to line the potential route of City's team coach.

"Man City is a pretty good football team".

Klopp had opted to leave out two of his three star attackers from the starting XI against Genk in the midweek, with both Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino getting only a few minutes from the bench.

"As with any match, a comprehensive and appropriate policing operation has been put in place ahead of Sunday's game and we have liaised with both clubs and their supporter groups", Merseyside police superintendent Paul White said in a statement https://www.merseyside.police.uk/news/merseyside/news/2019/november/statement-ahead-of-liverpool-fc-v-manchester-city. I have every confidence in him.

"Last year's performance of City at Liverpool was probably the biggest show of respect I ever got, that one of my teams ever got, because they played different to what they usually do", said Klopp.

All logic suggests, given Liverpool's form over the past 18 months, that victory and that increasing gap would simply not give Manchester City - or anyone else - enough wriggle room to claw it back. "Sit back and enjoy the ride - it could go either way, it could be a 5-4 or a 1-0, but I am sitting on the fence until I see the starting teams".

Liverpool and City's current league positions and points tallies suggest Klopp will see this as a golden chance to stretch the lead, also delivering a psychological blow, while Guardiola will regard it as an opportunity to make a statement and reel Liverpool in.

"Anfield is sure to be rocking".

The Reds are now six points clear of City in the table.
