Liverpool fans outraged at Gary Neville's comments on their Champions League pursuit

"We have players that worked together now for much longer; he comes from another league, a completely different system which Monaco played, to us".

The majority of Klopp's players were on duty with their national teams this month, and now head into a heavily congested period of seven games in 23 days.

The Merseyside outfit are aiming to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season after they finished in fourth place and without a trophy last term.

"I think they'll win this one but toppling Manchester City for the title will be so hard".

Jurgen Klopp has defended his decision to keep Fabinho out of his Liverpool team but admits it is "not nice" to tell him he will not be playing. The England global has not been in great form so far this season, and the striker will have to play an influential role against Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday.

"You have to appreciate the fans are spending their hard-earned money, put out the best team and go and try and win it". One player, meanwhile, who has had a tough time in the early stages of the season is Fabinho, about whose situation Klopp shed some light on.

"How would that work?" Klopp asked at Friday's press conference.

"Gary should come over and tell me how that works". How do you prepare a game and not focus on it?

All week we've heard how Liverpool have to improve their away record against "top six sides" and it's true that points dropped at City, United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham were frustrating, they wouldn't, if turned into wins, have bridged the 25-point gap to Manchester City in the league. I don't understand, we play our kids or what? Previous year I don't think even Gary Neville would have said 'let City win in the Champions League.' Sitting in an office talking about football is different to doing the job.

Former Tottenham and Manchester United forward Dimitar Berbatov has backed Liverpool to come out victorious this weekend. The club he's more interested in?

"To focus on one competition can only be if you are already out, or almost out, or if it's late in the season".
