"It's very tough, probably the toughest away game of the season in the Premier League", the Germany global told ESPN FC. However, Klopp's exciting progress with this team means that this group has to deal with more scrutiny. Also, City have lost just one of their last 25 away games in the top flight, and they are yet to taste defeat in the PL this term.
Klopp's Liverpool will host Premier League titleholders City in a blockbuster top-of-the-table clash at Anfield on Sunday - both teams level atop the standings following unbeaten starts to the season.
"It's obviously going to be a tough game, but we've shown in recent games that we have the ability to beat them, to go toe-to-toe with them, and that's what we'll be looking to do again on Sunday - to go at them and try to win the game". We have to wait a bit. "After none of these games you go into the dressing room and think, "Now we've got it, now we know how to beat Manchester City"," insisted Klopp.
During his press conference Pep confirmed he could welcome back his star man, Kevin De Bruyne this weekend. However, Fabian Delph has been ruled out.

Sterling, 23, has been booed during each game at Liverpool since his acrimonious move to City in 2015.
