Champions League: Klopp tells Liverpool players what to expect from Manchester City


Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp has warned his players to prepare for a Manchester City ’thunderstorm’ ahead of their Champions League quarter final second leg on Tuesday.

Liverpool look to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League having 3-0 advantage over City.

The Reds stunned Pep Guardiola’s men 3-0 at Anfield in the first leg but Klopp is taking nothing for granted against the Premier League champions-elect.

He said, “I saw the City v United game at the weekend. It was one of the best first halves I ever saw. It was like a thunderstorm.

“Then, in the second half, they change the game. After the first goal, one team gains rhythm, another team loses rhythm. The game changes.

“We can go through all scenarios: they score early, we score early and all that stuff. It is not to plan like this. I cannot tell the boys, ‘Boys, score early’. Well, I can, but I am not sure that it really helps. It is all clear.

“We have to think about football, what we have to do, where we have to do it. The boys knew after the [first] game. This is half-time. The game is not over.

“We are in the lead, nothing else. Being in the lead is not winning. We need a little bit more from this game.”
