Jurgen Klopp spoke about Monday’s Premier League match with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Liverpool are searching for a first league victory of the 2022-23 campaign at Old Trafford, following draws against Fulham and Crystal Palace.

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp said ,”When we had the two results last year, I knew already in that moment it would not help for next year, that’s always like this. I couldn’t be less interested in the results from last year – they were different games, different situations. It just helps United, probably, a little bit to be even more motivated, if that’s possible, in the situation we are in. No, this is a completely different game obviously in a different situation but that’s it.”

On Darwin Nunez about his red card …

“we spoke to Darwin and the reaction is like the reaction is in these situations. He was very disappointed with himself, obviously, that it happened. We spoke to him. The things the centre-half did, he’s not the only player in the world who is doing these kind of things. Look, it’s a bit like that, if somebody makes such a mistake and you tell them, ‘[You] should not do it.’ ‘Yeah, I know.’ It’s about emotions, it’s about all these kind of things.

We never had a situation like this before here as I know, pretty sure. That’s why I’m not an expert in these talks because I didn’t need to have it that often. But it was that obvious that he knew anyway. He apologised, which is absolutely fine. We told him that it’s not necessary to [be] walking through the building head down, miserable, stuff like this, because it happened. That’s it. We are human beings and maybe made mistakes in our lives and will make mistakes in our life and then you have to carry on. If you don’t do it again then it’s all fine. It happened once and it’s OK.”

Jurgen Klopp further said,”I would prefer to play them after they won 5-0, definitely. That’s how it is. But it’s not dreamland, so we have to take it like it is. We drew two games, so is it better to play us in a situation like this, or is it worse? I don’t know. It’s just the situation and in the end, there’s a start in the game but then 89 minutes are still to go, so you have to deal with all the situations in the game and in this moment obviously nobody knows exactly what will happen around the game, we don’t know. I think the whole world will watch it, it’s Monday night anyway, everybody can watch it, and you will see how these two heavyweights deal with the situation. I would watch it, I will watch it.”

On Ten Hag’s style of play so far…

“You don’t need my saying to that. It’s obvious what he wants to do, he wants to build up from the back. We played them in the pre-season obviously. There, you could see and feel the high-press idea and these kind of things. We were, for sure, not ready for that game in the pre-season, not sure if the players arrived only three days before the game but that’s how it is. We made some mistakes but they used them really well. The individual quality of United up front is ridiculous. [I] heard Martial can play probably, now trained again and can play. He played against us obviously a really good game, so another boy with technique and speed. Football quality in midfield, whoever lines up he will have Eriksen, Fernandes, Donny van de Beek, Fred… and McTominay.

There’s real quality there and then it’s just about how we deal with that. But again, these one, two games they played in the league, I saw them both and now we have to try to figure out if he will change and what he will change. We go from there. If we have no idea then we just have to learn it in the game,”Jurgen Klopp added.
