Jürgen Klopp says Manchester City still the best team in the world

Posted January 03, 2019

As usual, CityTV we were at the session to capture all the best moments.

How will one cope if the insufferable Kopites finally lay their hands upon the Premier League chalice?

Ahead of Liverpool's unmissable clash with Manchester City and the Etihad Stadium, a resurgent Red has been interviewed as to how far his team could potentially go. City are a big test, but should Liverpool get through it unbeaten, this could just be their year.

"Of course if we win we will have more confidence, we will be happier than if we lose".

"Everybody can make a mistake but what he has done after it, in the same game, where he could feel bad and guilty for the team... his reaction was outstanding".

Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool's Champions League final heartache last May laid the foundations for their relentless Premier League title bid this season.

That leaves us with a prospect of City attacking the Reds, which in turn provides Liverpool with an opportunity to play on the counter, in which they are one of the best. City should be telling themselves they're the champions and can beat anyone if they play the way they know they can.

"That's what we will try to do, it's what we try to do every game".

While anything can happen in the ever competitive English Premier League, no team has managed to inflict a defeat to this side. It's a very, very important game for both teams, obviously. Now we are in their position and we need to learn how they did it and finish the season well.

It is no coincidence that City succumbed to their second and third defeats in the league this season during the only two games that the defensive midfielder has missed. Therefore I needed the experiences and impressions I've got today from the team I've played.

The former England striker wrote in his Daily Mirror column: "Even if Liverpool were to beat Manchester City 5-0 at the Etihad".

Guardiola has preferred Danilo to Kyle Walker at right-back for Man City in recent games, but both are trumped in this team by Trent Alexander-Arnold, who continues to go from strength to strength for Liverpool. After 29 years not winning the Premier League, to be there to win the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp is without the injured Joe Gomez, who would have made my combined XI alongside Virgil van Dijk if fit, so that is a small boost for City. Pep's plan might work keeping in view the error from Alisson in the game against Leicester and their attackers urge to move forward behind the defenders. Like Aguero at the other end, Salah is strong, clever, makes brilliant runs and is clinical in front of goal, so City will be looking to keep him under wraps for 90 minutes.
