Klopp admits Liverpool haven't figured out Man City formula

Liverpool don’t have the key to beating Manchester City: Juergen Klopp

The Belgium midfielder was not expected to return until after the global break after damaging his cruciate ligaments in August but he returned to first team training last week and could be in the squad for Sunday's top-of-the-table clash with second-placed Liverpool.

Obviously the Belgian worldwide is lacking match practice so it remains to be seen whether Guardiola will consider him from the start at Anfield but it would still be a huge boost for City to have him on the bench. "We will see tomorrow", explained Guardiola. He is training with us.

City also have a terrible record at Anfield having lost 12 of their last 17 visits, with their last away victory in 2003. We try to be close to them. "We are not going to defend".

"I expect them to be like this again. They are much more proven winners than we are". In Anfield you have to minimise that in the best way. I didn't want to lose at Napoli but, if you ask me which is the best preparation mood wise, it's losing a game.

"I was surprised the front three were playing".

Klopp has been described as Pep Guardiola's nemesis but the German insisted there is no magic formula to beating City.

"Good, congratulations, they are right", he said.

Sky Sports main event and Sky Sports Premier League will be showing the game live with coverage starting at 4.15pm, following the Southampton vs Chelsea game.




Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Naby Keita is Liverpool's only injury doubt ahead of the game, having been stretched off with a back issue against Napoli, with Adam Lallana returning to full training this week.

It would, therefore, have bought great frustration from the Liverpool manager seeing the Guinean global go to the turf with so few minutes on the clock.

"They bought a few players".

City last visited Anfield in April for the first leg of a Champions League quarterfinal and that game was somewhat overshadowed by events prior to kick-off.

"I think the best way to protect the bus is down to the Liverpool fans who are there", he said.

"That's all we need to know". Why should the police need to be there?

Liverpool are now second to City on goal difference alone but, for all the praise they've received so far this season, the Merseysiders have not won in three games - a League Cup draw and Premier League loss to Chelsea followed by Wednesday's 1-0 defeat by Napoli. "I didn't watch that documentary, I heard about it and, now I saw it, is there anything where you think, 'Wow?'" said Klopp.
