Klopp warns Liverpool to respect Porto

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp does not Manchester City will struggle if they have to chase them in the title race

The 51-year-old German manager is keeping the Reds at pace with Manchester City in the Premier League title race, as well as mounting a challenge for the Champions League crown.

Will Liverpool win the Premier League title this season?

Klopp sang the praises of Virgil van Dijk, who played an outstanding game: 'What can I say?

He even went so far as to claim he has spotted a chink in the formidable armour of Van Dijk, and will look to exploit it come Sunday's clash.

"This guy [Van Dijk] got another goal".

Although we weren't entirely sure of it at the time, it is now for certain that Liverpool managed to get their hands on a world-class centre-back in January 2018 for just £75 million. Most of the time it is the front three, but now also Virgil is scoring, Trent can score and Robbo is getting closer.

But now that the Dutch worldwide is back in the top flight, he thinks he knows information on van Dijk that nobody else has been able to pull together - which is incredible, really, considering the vast scouting and analytics beast that modern football has become.

Where he's really improved though is passing.

At least one English team reached the final over five consecutive years from 2004-05 to 2008-09 and in seven seasons out of the eight until 2011-12, with Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea all winning and losing at least one final and Arsenal also losing.

Morrison has been seriously impressed with Mane but reckons Van Dijk may just pip him to the end-of-season gong.

The Reds have found the back of the net from set-piece situations more frequently in recent weeks, including one in the 3-1 win over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena in midweek. What was originally a top two became a top four, which has now become a top six. In fact, Laurent Koscielny and John Stones are the only other first tier defenders to have had fewer single-digit matches, and both have played at least 10 fewer matches.

The Premier League was pitted against the Bundesliga in a total of three ties.

Especially as a new contract will, in all probability, most be sorted over the summer ahead of next season. In fact, the gap between first and second at the position is the same as the gap from second all the way down to 32nd.

The best Champions League odds as it stands are with bet365.

Bayern knew they had to be more adventurous than they had been at Anfield, but they were suffocated by Liverpool's intense pressing in the first half. If you pick him every week, he could do the same for you.
