Jurgen Klopp labels Sky Sports’ all-Liverpool combined XI a joke

Jurgen Klopp has labelled the all-Liverpool line-ups from Manchester United and Liverpool XIs as a “joke”.

The Reds boss takes his table toppers to Old Trafford on Sunday looking to extend their 100% record, and as ever the build up to the game has been intense.

All week combined XIs from the two sides have been prominent with Danny Mills appearing on Sky Sports News and picking a whole Liverpool side featuring Jurgen Klopp’s favoured front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

Asked about the talk from outside the club, he said: “Ignoring it. This game is so easy. Not the game against United, the game you all play.




“When on Sky you make a combined line-up and it’s all Liverpool. It’s a joke. It’s a circus and we’re in the centre. A couple people want us to win, a couple want us to lose.

“I am aware of the strength of the Man Utd.

“Premier League games, all of them are really intense. I wouldn’t have realised the difference until there are 500 people in the room. Whatever they do we have to be prepared for that.

“We are not nervous because of the winning streak and the history we could make. We are very relaxed and very ambitious as well.”
