​Liverpool boss Klopp relishing clash with Man City

LiverpoolJurgen Klopp boss is looking forward to Sunday's game, with leaders Manchester City and a chance to inflict a first Premier League defeat of the season and also gain revenge for a 5-0 loss at the Etihad back in September.

"It is a big game, 100 per cent," said Klopp. "We played there a few months ago, probably one of the stranger games in my life.

"We were really good in the game. Slightly better side, slightly better chances, open game - both teams not fantastically defending but both on the front foot.

"Nice game and then we had a red card [Sadio Mane]. That obviously changed the game and maybe for Man City the season.

"They did not do too bad before that but, after that, it was like 'ah, we are really good!'

"They are playing a fantastic season. Our season is not too bad but, in a game like this, you need to show that you can cause them problems, more problems than other teams can.

"It is Anfield, that is another thing. I am really looking forward to the game to be honest."
