This Sunday Liverpool take on Man City in what has become the game in English football in recent seasons. Whenever the two North West sides face each other it has the potential to be a title decider. This weekend is no different. Jürgen Klopp has outlined how Liverpool can beat Man City.
Libpool top ‘the league
This season has started strongly for the Reds on the domestic front.
The Reds are a point clear of Manchester City in second place.
Jürgen Klopp’s side are the only team still undefeated in the division.
The Reds’ lead would be slightly more commanding had we been more clinical against Brentford.
Mo Salah passed up a golden chance to seal the result against the Bees before the hosts equalised late on.
However, you’ve got to hand it to Thomas Frank – he executed a clever game plan perfectly.
Jürgen Klopp on Man City plan
Down the years Liverpool v Man City has become one of the most important fixtures of the Premier League season.
It is a title race six pointer every time.
The Reds go into the game confident having just battered Porto 5-1 away from home.
The visitors on the other hand were beaten 2-0 by PSG.
Speaking after the win over Porto, Jürgen Klopp detailed how Liverpool can beat Man City:
“We play against Man City, I don’t think now it makes too much sense to think too much about how many goals we can score against them. We need a complex and complete performance against them to have a chance only and that’s it.”
What RTK has to say
This game has delivered some classics down the years. Well, the ones we’ve won have been classics. Remember that 4-3 win? What a game.
The Reds beating Pep Guardiola’s side could prove decisive in the final reckoning.
Not only is it a six pointer but winning would damage the Citizens’ confidence, two defeats in a week against two strong rivals could cause heads to go.
