Asked about the possibility of the match being moved to a neutral venue, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp said: "Honestly, I would prefer it is in Manchester, otherwise it would be really difficult to organise.
"I don't know how it would be but it would not be in Liverpool so it would mean we both have to go somewhere where we both need a hotel. That is the only issue.
"Apart from that, we play where they send us to. I would prefer it in Manchester but I don't know about the process. I wait until the final information is confirmed, whether it is Manchester or not. It would be a challenge for both clubs."
