Klopp clarifies his expectations before facing Manchester United


Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that he is waiting for a strong Manchester United squad during a postponed match next Thursday in the Premier League.

United will play Aston Villa on Sunday before hosting Leicester City on Tuesday. The summit match will be held against Liverpool on Thursday, according to the British “Sky News” agency.

Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solciar said he may have no choice but to use the rotation policy and make major changes to the starting line-up due to the pressure of matches.

But Klopp is expected to face a strong squad from second-placed United with 67 points from 33 games, ten points behind Liverpool, sixth-placed, who played one additional game.

“I expect a strong squad in front of us,” Klopp said after Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Southampton on Saturday night. “I think Manchester United have great players.”

“If I were to think of the players expected to participate, they have a really strong squad. An amazing midfield and attacking line with great players,” he added.

Liverpool kept their hopes of finishing the season in the semi-finals after winning at Anfield on Saturday with goals from Sadio Mane and Thiago Alcantara.
