Louis Van Gaal says Klopp's Liverpool will win the Premier League

For all their illustrious past, Liverpool haven't won the English league since 1990 and their most recent challenge, in 2014, ended with what many felt was a submission to pressure.

"Klopp has turned Liverpool into an absolute fighting machine - both attacking and defending", he explained. Wolves have the sixth-best defensive record in the league so far this season, while at the front they have been scoring relatively freely for a promoted side. Liverpool have a team that can defend much better'. Guardiola's side host Rotherham United in the FA Cup third round on Saturday.

My gut feeling is that there will be a bigger gulf in ability between these two sides on Monday night than there was when they met just before Christmas in the Premier League.

Despite that, Klopp is set to give him a run-out in the all-Premier League cup game and praised the Spanish worldwide for his professionalism. They looked slow, uninventive and generally lacked any real intent throughout the 90 minutes. They had less possession and one can argue that they were luckier than Liverpool in their 2-1 victory. Overall too Wolves hold the advantage in this fixture, winning 50 games out of a total of 102 and losing only 35 fixtures.

However, a Liverpool defence that had not conceded twice in the same game all season in the league before kick-off was breached when City managed to free Aguero from Van Dijk's shackles. "Liverpool just need to relax, get some wins under their belt, maybe improve that lead if they can over the next month to six weeks". What we've got to do is get better and move forward.

Will Jurgen Klopp make big changes from the City match?

In return, the Bulls received guards MarShon Brooks and Wayne Selden , accompanied by two second-round picks. Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Memphis is giving up its 2019 and 2020 picks to Chicago in the deal.

The likes of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Andy Robertson have played most games this season and deserve a rest.

"I'm not anxious about the result I'm buzzing with the tremendous performance". It will be much tougher in the summer with plenty of clubs likely to be sniffing around a player who is clearly destined for big things and given the situation Liverpool find themselves in, it would make flawless sense to do a deal now.

The only other injury concern for Liverpool is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and the midfielder has stepped-up his recovery from a serious knee ligament injury after returning to light training. Espirito Santo might still rotate a bit, which could bring in Ruben Neves, who has been out of favour for a while.

After the sale and loan of Dominic Solanke and Nathaniel Clyne respectively, we can expect few youngsters to be in the squad for this tie, mixed with fringe players who are aiming to knock at the door for regular football.

They are all in the last 16 of European competition - and all play German opposition.
