Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has played down the defensive issues that Man Utd are facing after their display against Atalanta in the Champions League. Paul Scholes criticized the defensive display from his former side as they conceded a host of chances in the first half before an improved performance in the second. Liverpool and their talisman Mohamed Salah have been in swashbuckling form this season scoring 30 goals in nine games this season.

“There was not one second where I was rubbing my hands. Atalanta caused United some problems in the first half but even then United had three clear-cut chances.” Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said. “The second half was a pure power presentation of United. They went for it and with the quality, they have they can cause any team problems, especially when you stop playing football, which Atalanta did a little bit. I prepare the team for a tough game against a really good opponent. I have been preparing them for the last three days about Man United, Battle of Britain, all these things. We have been long enough together to know the importance of this game.”

“What’s clear is that Curtis will train with us today (Friday), that’s the plan. And Thiago not. So, these are the two things I know for the moment,” he added. “Curtis will train with us today completely, he should be in contention. Thiago is running again, which is a good sign. I am not sure if he will return before the international break. But for sure, after it. We will see.”
