Klopp fixture fury after stunning Champions League draw

Man United legend Sir Alex Ferguson

Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool can overcome Manchester City in their Champions League quarterfinal tie if his players impose their "specific style" and are "brave" across two legs.

Klopp remains the only manager to have outwitted Pep Guardiola in the Premier League this season, so there is scope for a rivalry to develop between Liverpool and City in the same way that Liverpool and Chelsea were at loggerheads when managed by Rafa Benitez and Jose Mourinho. During a game he is always 100 per cent in, so am I. If you are a football manager, you think, "Ooh!"

The Hornets are sitting in the relative comfort of mid-table despite losing seven of their last eight away league games and their lengthy injury list ensures that they are without Tom Cleverley, Gerard Deulofeu, Nathaniel Chalobah, Younes Kaboul and Isaac Success for this trip to Anfield. One thing is for sure - it will be two very intense games'. It's not our job to decide how we go there.

The Brazilian says City will have to take that as a fair warning when the sides face off in European competition in April, "Everybody knows this will be a tough game and we will have to prepare very well for this game".

The two clubs have already clashed twice this season in the league.

"What's that? If we had Tuesday-Wednesday [it would be fine] but no, we have the Wednesday-Tuesday rhythm". City stormed to a 5-0 victory during their home fixture back in September. Our record is not too bad against City'.

Writing on his column for the Daily Mail, Redknapp claimed: "This is the draw neither team wanted, while City may be slight favourites, I can see Liverpool going through". No, I don't think so. Everybody is a little like this. "Maybe they are not concentrating [too much on] that game because then they can be champions a week later and Man United can win a game at Manchester City which would not help us as well".
