Liverpool v Manchester City

Pep Guardiola

However, Klopp says their financial power and the leadership of Pep Guardiola makes the task of overhauling City a very hard one.

"They are so strong".

"I can say it again, I really think the most important thing for football - the most important job of football - is entertaining the people", Klopp continued.

But one thing is for sure, fans of the oil rich club don't like it when they have to come to Anfield, and for good reason.

"It makes them the biggest force at the moment - together with PSG - in world football".

Jurgen Klopp's side now sit level on points with Man City at the top of the Premier League table. "Now we have to go to Anfield and put that to bed", he said.

Pep Guardiola insists Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has lost none of his goal-scoring prowess, but the Manchester City boss claims the Egyptian must repeat last season's prodigious feats before he can match Sergio Aguero.

Liverpool's manager attributed his seven victories over Guardiola - he was also successful at Borussia Dortmund - to "courage and good luck". "The Police knew it before it happened, now we know it, I don't know whats going to happen". "I didn't watch that documentary, I heard about it and, now I saw it, is there anything where you think, 'Wow?'" said Klopp.

"That night (against Napoli) the first 15 minutes was an open game with better opportunities for us".

I'm not 100 per cent sure yet.

On the suggestion that City and Liverpool could become the next great Premier League rivalry, Klopp said others could not be discounted. Recent history is in their favour - they are unbeaten in their last 17 home games against Manchester City, and have gone 24 Premier League games without defeat at Anfield. Different game, different opponent, different challenge - unfortunately even bigger challenge. "They are top side and we try to be closer every time". For Salah it was the first one, so we will see in seven or eight years.

The two sides meet on Super Sunday, live on Sky Sports, with City leading the Anfield side at the top of the table on goal difference, with both having dropped two points from 21 this season. There was a bump in the road on Wednesday, but we've got to keep trying to push forward and gather as many points as we can.
