“We’re definitely not in the title race” – Klopp admits after losing to Arsenal

Liverpool are looking to recover from their 3-2 defeat by Arsenal last Sunday when they take on Rangers tonight in the Champions League at Ibrox. Bukayo Saka’s 76th-minute penalty saw the Reds fall 14 points adrift of Premier League leaders and Jurgen Klopp is hoping for better results in Europe’s top opposition.

When these two teams met at Anfield last week, it was Liverpool who controlled and dominated the game. Trent Alexander-Arnold opened the scoring in the seventh minute before Mo Salah converted a penalty early in the second half. Another performance and result like this will leave the Reds second in Group A and just one win away from reaching the knockout rounds.

Rangers, on the other hand, have had a terrible campaign so far. Three defeats in three games, conceding nine goals and not conceding. Boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst will be crossing his fingers that the atmosphere in Glasgow gives his team some inspiration to bring the game to Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp on his return to top form

After Sunday’s 3-2 defeat by Arsenal, Liverpool sit 10th in the Premier League table and appear to be a shadow of their former form in terms of form. Injuries to key personnel have not helped them but manager Jurgen Klopp says they must keep fighting to turn things around.

“We have to keep fighting, it won’t happen overnight,” said the German in a press conference before the game: “I saw that we’re not playing our absolute best football, but we played away against the top team in the league again [Arsenal]Top of the table, great team, great, really good players, all good, but we lost it the way we lost it.

“Now it is difficult to judge. So what did we miss in this particular game? Only the right refereeing decisions would have been helpful to be 100 percent honest and then we can reassess the game. If we won this game, our problems for the outside world would be completely solved. We know it isn’t.

“Now we’ve lost the game and three players, of course that’s the opposite of what should have happened. The only thing we can do is keep fighting – and we will. Anyone who wanted to see it could see it; We fought really hard against Arsenal.”

“Ibrox has something special”

Rangers midfielder John Lundstram supports the crowd at the Ibrox to give the team extra motivation to achieve a special result against Liverpool in Glasgow tonight.

“Ibrox has something special on European nights,” said Lundstram. “As long as we go up against them and put a glove on them, hopefully we can achieve something.”

The 28-year-old joined Rangers from Sheffield United in 2021 and says last season’s run to the Europa League final, where they beat Red Star, Braga, RB Leipzig and drew against Borussia Dortmund in Glasgow, is encouraging for the players what you can achieve tonight something similar.

“In Ibrox you have to face people, shake up the crowd, get them going and try to instill a little fear in the opposition,” he said.

“Anyone who has been here will have felt the vibe that Aura felt around the place. If we can get to them and get in their faces maybe that leaves us a bit open and everyone in the stands has to be brave and bear with us.

“If we can do that then it’s the only way we can get a result against a side like Liverpool who are really talented.”

Jurgen Klopp says Didi Hamann has ‘no idea’ after criticism of former Liverpool midfielder

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp snapped at a reporter at a Champions League press conference after asking about Didi Hamann’s criticism of him.

Former Liverpool player Hamann has said Klopp could lose his position with the Reds if their season doesn’t improve. Liverpool are 10th in the Premier League and have lost a Champions League game this season. The Rangers have a tricky test on Wednesday evening.

When asked about Hamann’s comments that Liverpool lacked the “spark”, Klopp replied sarcastically: “Oh great, he’s a fantastic source, highly regarded everywhere. That [being a former Liverpool player] doesn’t give you the right to say what you want, especially when you have no idea.

“I actually think Didi Hamann doesn’t deserve you asking me a question with this sentence. Do me a favor and ask your own question. Try asking a question without the word ‘spark’, that’s the challenge now.”

Rangers vs Liverpool

Hello and welcome that of the independent Coverage of today’s Champions League action between Rangers and Liverpool.

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mo Salah gave the Reds a 2-0 win when the sides met at Anfield a week ago and manager Jurgen Klopp is hoping his side repeat that feat tonight. In the period between those two games, Liverpool slipped to a defeat by Arsenal in the Premier League and are now 14 points adrift of leaders, which could prompt them to seek success in this season’s cup competitions. They are currently second in Group A, three points behind Napoli but a win tonight would mean they only need to beat Ajax to qualify.

Rangers, meanwhile, are still trying to secure their first point of the season after being defeated in all three Champions League games so far. It’s been a tough return to Europe’s top competition for the Scottish side but if there was ever a time to claim victory it was against Liverpool at the Ibrox in front of the home fans.
