Liverpool to take confidence of Augsburg win into League Cup final with Man City

Jurgen Klopp suggests his Liverpool side will be confident leading into this weekend's Capital One Cup final.

The Reds defeated Augsburg 1-0 in the Europa League Round of 32 second leg at Anfield on Thursday night and will now prepare for Sunday's League Cup decider against Manchester City at Wembley.

Regarding the build-up to the cup final, Klopp said: "It's better than if we'd had a defeat and been knocked out.

"Tonight's game is different and not relevant to Sunday, but obviously the team has benefited from a good performance and gained confidence, although you could say the same for Manchester City in Kiev last night.

"We'll try our hardest to produce a good performance on Sunday."
