Klopp: Its not about my record against Pep
Jurgen Klopp says history will count for little when Liverpool face Pep Guardiolas Manchester City at Anfield on New Years Eve.
While both managers are fairly new to the English Premier League, they do have a fair bit of history between, having met on eight previous occasions when they were managers of their respective Bundesliga clubs, FC Bayern Mnchen and Borussia Dortmund.
While Guardiola is one of the most successful managers in the world, Klopp has enjoyed his fair share of success against him, winning four of their eight encounters albeit with three of them coming in Cup encounters.
We know everything about how Pep played with Bayern but that is not important any more because it is different players and different systems, Klopp said on Thursday.
opp also revealed that neither Joel Matip or Philippe Coutinho would feature for his side on Saturday, as both are still nursing ankle injuries, and he was quick to rubbish reports of a possible move to Anfield for Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
