Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed ahead of Liverpool’s clash with Manchester United that he thinks the German Coach has improved Man United defensively.
Liverpool will be hoping to complete their first league double over Manchester United since the 2008/2009 season when the two sides meet tomorrow. Jurgen Klopp’s side hammered the Red devils 5-0 in October at Old Trafford.
The Reds are currently second on the League Table behind defending Champions Manchester City. they need to win all their remaining seven matches if they want to overtake Manchester City on the League table.
Tomorrow’s match will be a test of how Liverpool is prepared to match Pep Guardiola’s side for the Premier League title.
Manchester United needs to get at least a point in the match if they want to secure a top-four finish this season knowing perfectly well that a win at Anfield will put them on the level with fourth-place Tottenham.
What did he say about Ralf Rangnick?
Klopp was asked on Monday during the post-match press conference about the progress United has made since Rangnick replaced Solskjaer.
‘Obviously, I think, Ralf tried to organize the team, that’s how it is, put in a clear structure with the squad they have.
‘United played some really, really good games but because it’s United even when you win the games it’s difficult to gain some momentum, I can imagine.
‘But they concede fewer goals, for sure.
‘They’ve dropped some points if you put them on their points tally you see all of a sudden they are fourth in the table and being fourth in the Premier League means you are a quality side because of the other opponents you have it’s madness how consistent they’ve been to get somehow close to that area.
‘You see Tottenham flying at the moment, they had a little drop [against Brighton], but the quality they have is incredible.
‘Chelsea is so strong, we’re all still fighting for qualifying for the Champions League next year, if we do that then from that moment on we can think about something else.
‘But United are in that group as well and that says a lot about the quality they have.’
Klopp added: ‘United’s obviously in a situation where they won the last game, they were not happy with the performance but the result and the results from other games have opened the door again for the Champions League again.
‘And that’s the Man United we will face now. They will go for it.
‘I’m sure if they want to qualify for the Champions league they’ll have to do it without our points, but between now and then, an intense 90, 95 minutes will have to be played.’
