"For me, it's a 100 per cent want-to-win game, 100 per cent with all I have".

Jürgen Klopp or Pep Guardiola?

"I am completely fine with that". It's still a big thing to be his contender. "We've had a few good results against them so from my side there is nothing but respect". But I am really not interested.

"If I could do it again, I wouldn't say it [the line about the tactical fouls] because it's just not necessary. How exactly it will be, I don't know". "Everything else will be decided on the pitch".

Liverpool and Manchester City renew their rivalry this weekend, so how much do you know about the top two sides in the land?

Klopp certainly plans to go for the win rather than focus on avoiding defeat, but he does not think the match will prove decisive in the title race.

Warriors' Curry 'unlikely' to return this season
Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry will miss the rest of the National Basketball Association season. Even so, Ric Bucher wrote in Bleacher Report that the primary prognosis could have been optimistic.

When asked by Sky Sports whether the game was more of a must-not-lose scenario for his team, the boss said: "I'm sorry, maybe there are other people who are smarter than I am and see it like this!" It is the only way we can beat City. November, December and January are coming.

"When you see the statistics, I don't believe much in these sorts of things, but 38 years for one (win), it shows how hard it is at Anfield". For me it's a 100 per cent win game.

"I didn't see it but I can understand each disappointment. Statistics are okay but it is a game, it's about 94 minutes, 95, 96 and what you have to do to beat them".

"Last year's performance of City at Liverpool was probably the biggest show of respect I ever got, that one of my teams ever got, because they played different to what they usually do", said Klopp. "I want to compete for titles and to be the best, and to do that you have to win against the best". And then after that we will see how the situation is and use that situation. "Definitely. We know it", he said. The whole world will be watching and I'm looking forward to it.

"We didn't let them do what they wanted and if that was more easy, I think other teams would try it and the boys put an incredible shift in again". City's performance at Anfield past year was the biggest show of respect I ever got because they played differently to what they usually do.

"We want to win and we try everything to make that happen, which is hard enough". Without that it would be another draw and it would be deserved. I'm pretty sure that if there's a chance to win at Anfield it's when you believe you're going to win the game.
