Klopp outlines the only possible approach for City game
- People who say Liverpool must not lose the City game, are wrong, Klopp says.
- The only right way to treat the match is to win it.
- Whatever the result, the season won't stop after Sunday.
Despite Manchester City are perhaps the toughest opponent Liverpool could face this season (at least in the Premier League), Jurgen Klopp believes a must-not-lose approach is not for the Reds - we are aiming for three points only.
"For me, it's a 100 per cent want-to-win game, 100 per cent with all I have," Klopp told Sky Sports. "For us, as a team, to prepare a game like this, you have to do the right things again and again and again. So knowing everything in the game, being brave, playing football, defending for your lives, all that stuff.
"Around has not a real effect on us, that's how it is. I can imagine it's the whole week [with] how the whole world is talking about we must not lose, I think I heard, and they must win or something like that. I don't really care.
"We want to win and we try everything to make that happen, which is difficult enough. Then after that we will see how the situation is and use that situation. If it's more positive than now or less positive than now, that's how it is. The season will not stop after this.
"But we know that it's a big one. The whole world is watching the game, I would 100 per cent, everybody I know will, so it's a massive one. I'm really looking forward to it, but the discussions around I'm not part of."
Under Klopp, Liverpool are a team that can get into every opponent's head with ease:
