Ahead of their Premier League clash on Sunday Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has entitled Manchester City the ‘greatest team in Europe’. With the Reds sitting atop the standings after six games, one point ahead of their opponents this weekend the matchup pits first against second.
Manchester City was defeated on a 2-0 match score by Paris Saint-Germain in midweek and they are coming off a resounding victory against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last Saturday. Despite this, Klopp stated in his pre-match press conference that his team will face a difficult assignment on Sunday.
“Big, big. Man City is an outstanding football team. They lost now against PSG. After Porto, I only knew the result and I said they probably will strike back. But they don’t have to actually. I saw now the game obviously and it was a really good football game. Man City played a really good game, which they lost in two situations, let me say it like this, or three, four situations, when they didn’t use their chances and PSG, could score, he said.
“But when you think about the quality of the PSG team and the way Man City dominated them, that says a lot, that says a lot about the qualities. We have to play a proper football game, I would say, to have a chance. But it’s Anfield and we are really looking forward to it, I can say that.”
He added: “They are still really, for me, probably the best team in Europe at the moment and it’s a tough one. Last weekend, they played Chelsea and everybody was talking about Chelsea, how good they are – and they are good, oh my God, they are really good – but City was clear, clear better that day. So, that’s the team we will face and to win the game we have to score goals.”
