Jurgen Klopp has told his team their challenge to current Manchester City in the title race is simple: “Be as annoying as possible!”

Liverpool have a chance to go within three points of Premier League leaders with a win over Leeds on Monday night … which made Pep Guardiola funny suggests that they are “a pain in the butt”.

Klopp loves the City manager’s assessment of his side, and insists that’s exactly what they have to do now… to ensure that if City are “soft”, the Reds are ready. attacks during the “decisive” months of March and April. .

“We try to be as annoying as we can, somehow, until we have a chance to get ahead. I don’t know when they will be available; IF that would be the case,” he explained.

“I think what Pep said, and maybe told me… we were a pain in the lower back, or maybe (to them)… that’s a good description, and it should be.

“I think we jostle each other, I think that’s why it’s a bit like that. There is no chance to soften your heart a little, because that one will immediately come to arrest you. ”

Klopp knows that City have the ruthless potential to win the majority of their remaining Premier League games, which is why he insists that the title equation has not changed: “We have to win them all. his matches.”

But he firmly believes that the key moments in the campaign do not come in February, but in March until the Easter period in mid-April.

That means somehow staying with their impressive opponents until that decisive stage, by playing against them… and he argues that the rivalry is stiff between the pair. Inspire both.

“I have to say that it took a while for both teams to be able to do some special things. And that’s all due respect, because Man City are doing something unbelievable,” he suggested.

“I don’t forget the other teams are also pushing. I don’t forget ChelseaFlower, Arsenal, Tottenham, anyone there. But we’re pushing each other.

“What I always say is, you have the decisive moments of the season but not now, not February, but rather March, April.

“So you have to be close enough to make a decision in your direction and I don’t know if that’s going to happen because what we do is pretty special and I don’t expect that to happen every week. .”

A win over Leeds would put Liverpool within three points of City, and their chance to overtake them with a tie at the Etihad between the two title heavyweights in April.

And the Liverpool manager insists that there are still plenty of people around Anfield who have to fight their way through Guardiola’s fearsome side… despite pride in how they’ve done it over the seasons.

“We still play against Tottenham, we also play against United, and it’s not like we just count those points, like yeah, done, done, done, and we’re just waiting in mid-April for the game against Tottenham. Man City.

“It’s tough, it’s hard, but what the boys have done in the past four years is quite special. And I’m happy with that, but not overly happy – not so happy that I think ‘okay enough’.

“We have to go from now on, we all know that for us so far this has not been a bad season, but the decisions will be made after that.

“One decision at the end of the week, others maybe even later, and we just need to make sure we’re always in and around, when these decisions will be made.”
