Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp demands ‘different level’ for Man City rematch


Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has demanded a different level in their rematch against Manchester City in the semi-final of the FA Cup this weekend. He admitted that his side was not at their best during their 2-2 draw at the Etihad last weekend. The result ensured that the Premier League title race was on a knife’s edge with seven games remaining.

“We think a lot about these games. We have to. City was really strong last week and we were not at our best,” Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said. “So, I’d like to see a game where we are at our best. It would be interesting so why don’t we give that a try? That would be nice, it could be a surprise if all of a sudden, we are good. The boys did a lot of good stuff in the game, but there were a couple of things and I know that we can perform to a different level. Then it’s a cup game, a one-off, and if it’s 2-2 again then it’s 120 minutes then it’s penalties, that would be really crazy to go all the way.”

“The reason for Mo not starting is easy. It was about, yes he played City but after that, we hopefully have 12 games. That’s why when we have an opportunity, we change. That’s all,” he added. “Even if Mo had scored four goals in the last game, he wouldn’t have started yesterday. That’s how it is. Nothing to do with anything, there’s no story to make of it. It’s just a necessity. Mo played in January and February six times for 120 minutes. Now we can just close our eyes and say, “Who cares?” Even he is just a human being. That’s why it’s clear there will be games he doesn’t start and games where we take him off. He hates that, that’s clear.”
