A number of Liverpool supporters have hailed Jurgen Klopp’s apparent mind games ahead of the Premier League clash with Manchester City.
The Reds face their most important game of the season so far on Sunday, as they welcome reigning champions City to Anfield.
Klopp’s men currently have a one-point cushion over their rivals at the top of the table and a win this weekend could feel significant in the title race.
It is an impossible result to call, but history suggests that the two sides could play out a thrilling encounter on Merseyside.
Speaking ahead of Sunday’s game [via journalist James Pearce on Twitter], Klopp claimed City are the best team in Europe at the moment, perhaps putting a little bit of extra pressure on Liverpool’s opponents.
