Man United vs Man City
If Man City are to drop any points in their four remaining Premier League fixtures, this week’s clash at Man United appears to be d-day.
After their trip to Old Trafford, Man City have games against Burnley (a), Leicester (h) and Brighton (a).
Liverpool only have three more league games to play.
The Reds welcome Huddersfield to Anfield on Friday night. After that it’s Newcastle away and Wolves at home.
Jurgen Klopp makes fun of Man United
Liverpool beat Cardiff City 2-0 on Sunday in the league.
That result put the Reds two points above City in the standings.
After the match, Jurgen Klopp was naturally asked for his thoughts ahead of the Manchester derby.
That question came after Everton thrashed United 4-0 at Goodison Park on Sunday.
Klopp used the Everton result as the basis for the following comment:
It [the derby] is not something we can influence, and it does not look like United are in a place to, either.
What was the [United] score today? 3-0, 4-0, to Everton?
It [the derby] is a normal game, a game they [City] have to play.
We had to play that game as well and Man United was in that moment obviously in a much better moment when we played them, so it was a 0-0. So, on a good day maybe, it [the derby] is a draw.
We’ll see what comes out on Wednesday, we have no influence on that, but we still have to play games after that.
So, if United get a point or whatever and we win [against] Huddersfield Town, go to Newcastle United after Barcelona and think we have it halfway or whatever, then we will get a knock there.
It’s all difficult, we just have to stay focused on our things – that’s what worked really well so far and I don’t see any reason why we should change.
