Klopp fixture fury after stunning Champions League draw

Klopp fixture fury after stunning Champions League draw

Jamie Redknapp has revealed that he believes Liverpool will beat Manchester City over the two legs of their Champions League quarter final clash.

Manchester City won 5-0 in the first match at Etihad after Sadio Mane's red card in the first half, while in the return game at Anfield, Klopp's side won 4-3.

"I love these games. If you are a football manager then you think 'oh not too bad".

The Hornets are sitting in the relative comfort of mid-table despite losing seven of their last eight away league games and their lengthy injury list ensures that they are without Tom Cleverley, Gerard Deulofeu, Nathaniel Chalobah, Younes Kaboul and Isaac Success for this trip to Anfield.

"Two very intense games", Klopp told the Liverpool Echo of the quarterfinal draw. During a game he is always 100% in, I am 100% in, and so far we have never had an argument at the sideline or stuff like that.

Juve have lost two of the last three Champions League finals, having been beaten by Madrid's LaLiga rivals Barcelona in Berlin in 2015, with Buffon yet to win the competition in his illustrious career.

Klopp worked with Gundogan at Borussia Dortmund and the Liverpool manager admits his former midfielder got in touch shortly after the Champions League draw.

"What's that? If we had Tuesday-Wednesday [it would be fine] but no, we have the Wednesday-Tuesday rhythm".

City pose a similar threat to that which Liverpool pose.

"They didn't want us", Klopp said. We all know about that.

Writing on his column for the Daily Mail, Redknapp claimed: "This is the draw neither team wanted, while City may be slight favourites, I can see Liverpool going through". Our record is not too bad against City'. But are we their nightmare? When you think about the draw, the team around the corner you can go by bus, you don't want it.

"When we play Everton, they play United".
