Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes Manchester City will give his team a strong fight when the two sides meet in a top-of-the-table clash on Sunday.
The Reds have won the last three games against Pep Guardiola’s team.
One of such was Liverpool’s thrilling 4-3 win over City in January at Anfield. The win ended the club’s 22-game unbeaten run.
But Klopp is not carried away.
“In the 4-3 [game], they were really good and they won before that 60 or 70 games in a row, or that is how it felt,”he said in the pre-match presser on Friday.
“They never gave up, even when they were 4-1 down and that made them really special last year.
“I expect them to be like this again. They are really going for results.
“Last year, we won the last three games against City, twice in the Champions League and once in the league.”
The German also said, “After these games, you don’t go into the dressing room and think ‘now we have got it, now we know how to beat City’, because there is no real way or one thing that you have to do.
“You have to be ready and have a fantastic football team. Thankfully, I have that, with outstanding character, ready to be brave and ready to make mistakes in a very difficult game against an outstanding opponent.
“It can work. That is all we need to know.
“When somebody says to me, ‘good luck for Sunday’, I think unfortunately we need it.”
