Jürgen Klopp detailed why being part of Liverpool versus Manchester United fixtures is 'something special' as he vowed his side would fight to clinch all three points on Sunday and maintain their outstanding start to 2018-19.
"Being part of the game is pretty special, I can say that. It’s a big one. When I heard about the game, when I was back in Germany years ago, I tried everything I could to watch it. Very often it was very intense and now I am in for a couple of years, it was always tight. In the Europa League, we were very successful against them, which was really good.
In the league, I don’t remember bad results too much, to be honest, but I don’t feel we always got the right result for the performance we had. Last year, they had a very, very good start in the home game against us and then we more or less took over but couldn’t get the game back, so it was a draw. Before, I don’t even remember it, but I don’t think we won a lot, so we’ll try to change that at least. It will be a very intense game and we need to be ready for that.
It’s really important because this week we reached a big target on Tuesday night, so we had one day exactly to feel the relief a little bit with that. Until Monday night and Tuesday afternoon it was not clear that we would stay in the Champions League. The boys did the job, so then we took the Wednesday to really calm down and since yesterday we are back on track.
Now today is the most important session to prepare for the game. I am really looking forward to it, it will be a big one. I think the people are ready to create again an atmosphere similar to Tuesday night, which was very special again. I am looking forward to it."
