Liverpool take on Manchester City at the weekend with the chance to go nine points clear at the top of the Premier League table, and Jurgen Klopp is leaving nothing to chance.

Pep Guardiola’s side are desperate for three points as they go in search of a boost as they target a third consecutive league title, but face a stern test against the unbeaten Reds.

Klopp has now discussed the growing rivalry between the two clubs, and why that will add to the atmosphere at Anfield - where he's hoping the hotdog sellers are on top form.

He said on Friday: ”City in the last three years have been the team in the Premier League and it has always been our plan to get closer.

“In the last three games we have drawn once and lost twice, but the guys are showing improvement.

"Everyone has to be in top shape in the stadium on Sunday, even the guy selling the hotdog.

“Everyone has to be there from the warm-up and invest all our emotions."

The former Borussia Dortmund boss also gave his thoughts on his relationship with Guardiola, after a recent spat over Sadio Mane’s alleged diving.

The Liverpool winger was accused by the ex-Bayern Munich boss of ‘sometimes diving’ before he backtracked after Klopp called him out.

“It's very respectful from my side,” Klopp said, when asked what he thinks of the former Bayern boss.

"It doesn't change during games from my side.

“It is about who we support and all we can do with our team.

“I couldn't respect him more. Best manager in the world.

“He's made a proper impact on this team.” He then joked: “He is now at Man City and the football is not too bad.

“I don't have a negative relationship with anyone on the sidelines.

“It might look like that but it is respectful. Very respectful."
