Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has warned his side that Manchester United will go for it when they come to Anfield on Tuesday. Klopp touted the game as a clash between two of the world’s biggest clubs. United are bolstered as they closed the gap to Tottenham after the latter suffered a surprise loss at home to Brighton. They will also be eager to avenge their 5-0 thrashing by Liverpool at Old Trafford earlier this season.
“We have to be angry in a good way, greedy all these kinds of things like you are if you have won nothing and would be with nil points and it’s the most important three points in your life,” Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said. “That’s the attitude we need for this game. If we let United do (what they want) they will cause us massive problems. It’s a big game, it’s a massive game – the two biggest clubs in the world, I would say. Maybe in Spain, two will say differently, but two of the biggest clubs in the world, for sure.”
“Massive history, big fights in the past – big fights since I’m here. We lost strange games against United, we took a while to win there. Some players had to learn to deal with it because of how much it means to them. But we should have learned – we’ve had enough time to do that,” he added. “This time it’s an incredibly important game for both teams. Both teams are fighting for being in the Champions League next year – or more, we will see. United won their last game. They were not overly happy with the performance, but the results from other games opened the door again. That’s the Man Utd we will face – they will go for it and we have to make sure that, if they want to qualify for the Champions League, they have to do it without our points.”
