Video: Jurgen Klopp speaks on test that Manchester United provide

Speaking to the press before Liverpool’s big game against Manchester United, Jurgen Klopp mentioned the test in which the Red Devils will provide. Klopp said: “If you don’t defend well against United, then I wouldn’t know a reason why we should get on the coach and go there to be honest because the quality they have offensively is absolutely ridiculous.

“I really don’t think it’s very likely you score at United 3 goals. But we never before a game think about scoring more than we do about defending. It is 100% clear, get into the game, stay in the game, and win the game, you have to defend on your absolute highest level.

“We have to focus on that. But not only because we have to create as well, we have to play football - very important. We have to be incredibly brave, brave because each ball you lose against United it’s a massive threat – a counter attack threat with the speed they have.

“So it’s a proper task to play United but we still want to do it, and we’re looking forward to it because we all know, it’s one of the biggest games in the world, so yeah, it will be a good one.”
