“I’m really looking forward to this game” – Jurgen Klopp ahead of Manchester United challenge

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has said that he is “really looking forward” to the upcoming home match against Manchester United on Sunday.

The Reds have not won in the Premier League since their emphatic 7-0 victory at Crystal Palace and are currently second at the table.

The defending champions were held 0-0 at Newcastle United in December after West Bromwich Albion took a point from them in the 1-1 draw at Anfield.

The Merseysiders then went on to suffer a shocking 1-0 defeat at Southampton, with Danny Ings popping up with the decisive goal.

Despite the setback at the St. Mary’s Stadium, Klopp is confident about the next game, insisting that they know what they have to do.

“We lost against Southampton a week or so ago, which was absolutely not what we wanted, but the next day we spoke and the boys had their say as well, all that kind of stuff,” he said (as per Sky Sports).

“We are now in a place where we want to be. We know what we have to do. We know what went wrong. We want to change.

“Now, we have to put in place on the pitch. That is the situation. I’m really looking forward to this game, to be honest.

“I know Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer, the United manager] said that this is the best moment to play against Liverpool. Yeah? Let’s see.”

Manchester United grabbed top spot in the league standings following their 1-0 victory at Burnley on Tuesday.

However, the Merseyside club have had more than a week to prepare for the Sunday’s encounter, and are expected to be at their best against the Red Devils.

Solskjaer’s side must come up with a very good performance to defeat the Reds at their Anfield fortress.
