Klopp convinced of Liverpool success

Last week's win against Burnley was the first time Liverpool have recorded back-to-back wins in 2017.

Express Sport understands Vincent Komapny will lead a massive clear-out at the Etihad, with the former Barcelona boss looking to rebuild City's team.

Klopp was left deeply frustrated over the Premier League's decision to make his Reds outfit play away at the Liberty Stadium following their mammoth triumph over Villareal in last season's Europa League last term, and the gruelling schedule evidently took a toll on his players as they fell to a shock 3-2 defeat to the Swans the following Sunday.

And with six sides in the mix for Champions League qualification, the yearly battle means all teams must strengthen constantly. "When that happens we improve and next season we come back and try to win titles". At Manchester City it's like this. We played Villarreal and then Swansea at 12.

"Next season Chelsea are going to buy, Tottenham are going to buy, United are going to buy".

Man City's next Premier League home win will be their 200 th in the competition, becoming the 8 th team to reach this milestone.

"At the top level, the mistakes you make, wow, the teams are really good".

The result of Sunday's match could go a long way toward solidifying a place in next season's UEFA Champions League, while the losers could find themselves in a precarious position with only nine games remaining in the Premier League campaign.

However, the City manager correctly pointed out that he never guaranteed success when he took over in a blaze of publicity at the Etihad Stadium previous year.

"I never said that in my first day at Barcelona, sitting there". Maybe a few people are but I am not. I work a lot. This is the way we play and if we play like that we are going to have more and more fans. But I never promise titles, never in my life.

Writing in his blog for Paddy Power, Hamann said: "I expect them to press high at the start against Man City to hunt another mistake, especially as the Citizens will be a bit fragile and possibly low on confidence". Never. Just work. And to be assured they are going to play the way I want.
