Jurgen Klopp has had his fair share of tangles with Pep Guardiola, and the Liverpool boss says Man City’s loss to Monaco in the Champions League should not be viewed as a team in poor form.

Klopp says Man City could have won “easily” in the UCL second leg, and that his side will be the underdogs at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Liverpool has been almost impenetrable against the top sides of the Premier League, with six wins and four draws versus the Top Seven so far.

From the BBC:

“We don’t go there as favourites and that’s a role that’s not too bad.

“If you are passive they will play around you. It’s a real tactical challenge.”

Liverpool beat Man City 1-0 at Anfield on New Year’s Eve, a sluggish affair with just three shots on goal. Will Sunday be more entertaining?
