Klopp couldn’t be less interested in how United are doing

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits he hasn’t failed to take on a competitive Manchester United side, but while he respects counterpart Erik ten Hag’s Old Trafford revolution, he could not be ‘less interested’ in their performances .

United arrive at Anfield on Sunday to make the double against their arch-rivals for the first time since January 2016, which was Klopp’s first encounter with them.

And after last season’s 9-0 aggregate win for Liverpool, the tide has turned slightly, with United now on the rise and those 23 points after the World Cup have amassed the most of any team in the competition, having only three of their last Have lost 22 league games and won the Carabao Cup.

By contrast, Klopp’s side have struggled all season and while they have stabilized the ship with three wins and a draw in their last four league games, third-placed United are still in the lead.

“Great, United are fine. I didn’t miss them,” said a laughing Klopp as he punched the air at his pre-match press conference.

“I can imagine how annoying it has been the last few years when we were there and everyone was like, ‘Klopp did this and Klopp is doing this. Excellent. And they bring young players with them. It’s really ‘ugh’ (sticks his fingers down his throat).

“They deserve it, they deserve where they are. They got the points, they played good football like everyone else.

United will head to Merseyside full of confidence after such a strong run under the acclaimed Ten Hag in all competitions and with a trophy already in the bag.

Apart from Martial’s ongoing problems and the absence of Eriksen, things are looking good on the injury front at the moment and with the impressive Rashford they boast the form player in world football.

Liverpool continue to be plagued by inconsistencies, although Jurgen Klopp will hope his side are able to rise to the challenge against their closest rivals after winning against Wolves something to build on.

A 1:1 draw.
