Manchester United To Feel Jurgen Klopp's Wrath After Liverpool Setback
Liverpool gaffer Jurgen Klopp has already turned his attention to the big Premier League game of the weekend, as his side travel to the most in-form team in the league, Manchester United. The huge rivalry resumes this weekend with more importance than usual, with United potentially having a big say on where the Premier League title ends up this season.
Klopp said after the Bayern Munich draw: “We have a massive game now, it's true. Now we have to recover and prepare for Manchester United who are obviously in good shape as we all saw on Monday.
“I don't think about it now, but I know it will come and we start preparing for that one.
“It's another tough one, but that's how it is at a top club. We play Bayern tonight, and then United on Sunday.
“That's cool actually, but it won't be easy of course.”
The German manager believes it will be tough for his side to make it through to the next round of the Champions League after a stalemate at Anfield last night. Both sides cancelled each other out in a disappointing affair which did not live up to the hype. Klopp said after the game:
“I'm sure Bayern will feel a little bit better than we do.
“But we have three weeks and day by day the result will be a bit better for us and a bit worse or Bayern because it's 0-0 – the best draw you can get.
“It'll be tough to go to Bayern and get a result. If we’d have won 1-0 what would have changed? 0-0 would get us through but it would still be tough.”
“A lot of things can change. But we will have at least one more player back and can play better than tonight. It's not decided.
“But I don't think there's any weak team in the Champions League, certainly not at home.”
