Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp reckons form will go out the window when Liverpool face their most bitter of rivals Manchester United at Anfield this Sunday.
These two historical rivals go into Sunday’s game in vastly contrasting moods with Erik Ten Hag’s Carabao Cup winning Man United currently sitting in third place in the Premier League table 10 points clear of Klopp’s Liverpool.
However, when they met in August, it was a massive surprise that United won 2-1 after Ten Hag’s side had gone into the game on the back of embarrassing defeats against Brighton and Brentford.
Klopp is hoping Liverpool can pull off a similar trick at Anfield this Sunday and has called on his team to make themselves as difficult as possible to play against.
“Yes they [Manchester United] have played a better season than us so far but thank God that means absolutely nothing for the game on Sunday,” Klopp told his pre-match press conference.
“We have our own targets – yes. It would be a boost, 100% [if we could get a result].
“We have to make sure we show that it is still incredibly difficult to play against us.
“When we played there [losing 2-1 in August] it looked incredibly difficult to play against them. We have to make sure that they realise, again, that it really is not a joy to face us.”
