Jurgen Klopp has praised Manchester City as the best team in Europe at the moment. Pep Guardiola’s side defend well, according to the German manager, but he also believes the Anfield crowd will help the Reds win. The Liverpool manager was speaking to the media ahead of his team’s match against the Cityzens, and he praised his upcoming opponents for their Premier League victory over Chelsea last week. Liverpool will face Manchester City at Anfield this week, and Jurgen Klopp is not taking the game lightly. “We have to play a proper football game to have a chance, but it’s Anfield,” the former Borussia Dortmund manager said. The game is something we’re really looking forward to. We’re in a good place right now, which is exactly what you need to be to stand a chance against them. They are, in my opinion, Europe’s best team. They played (and beat) Chelsea last weekend, who are a good team, but City were clearly superior on that day. To stay in the game and ensure that the goals we score make a difference, we must defend at the highest level possible… You must be brave, play on the front foot, be cheeky in moments, and truly be your best version. Then and only then do you have a chance. “So far in the Premier League, Liverpool and Manchester City have gone undefeated
Liverpool are the only team unbeaten in England’s top flight and will be looking to keep that streak going. They lead the table with 14 points after six games. With draws against Chelsea and Brentford, Jurgen Klopp’s side has dropped points twice this season. They’ve also defeated AC Milan in the Champions League and have performed admirably in all major matches. Manchester City did not get off to the best of starts in the Premier League this season, losing their first game to Tottenham Hotspur. Since then, they’ve only dropped one point and have 13 points from their first six games. Pep Guardiola’s side were defeated by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League this week. They haven’t always been at their best, but they’ve always shown up in the big games so far. On our SK Experts tab, you can read Fabrizio Romano and Paul Merson’s latest column.
