Klopp unhappy with fixtures, pokes fun at weird fitness egg

The Frenchman was his usual skilful self and gave the Sunderland defence a tough time The Frenchman was his usual skilful self and gave the Sunderland defence a tough time

"I'm fine with the moment, but we have to play a few more games and hopefully we perform well".

"I don't know if we can do anything, but I learn more and more about this league and maybe we have to ask somebody if there would be another time for us at Sunderland".

That start to the season compares favorably to that of Manchester United, which visits Anfield on Monday for what traditionally is the biggest game on the English calendar between the two most decorated teams in the country.

Klopp also took aim at former Wales assistant manager Raymond Verheijen, who has often criticised the German's training regime on Twitter.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, the German said that there injuries are "not too bad" but suggested it is "a question of perspective". And then this Dutch guy, athletic coach, says the training is not too good. "You have a team without spending money and you have a team with spending a lot of money".

He said that the club did their utmost to ensure the pair had a comfortable return to Merseyside, but acknowledged the "long trip" which will "still [be] in their legs" - before adding: "But each day, each hour helps until the next game so playing on Monday is an advantage in this case". Do you say: 'Only 50% against City because we have Sunderland on Monday?'.

Verheijen responded to Klopp's words by tweeting: "Liverpool manager Klopp caused 20 hamstring injuries in 10 months but keeps blaming external factors for injuries". "Never let 'a Dutch Guy" or anyone else get under your skin'.

After winning its first three games, United won only one of its next four.

"The more you play for in these games and the more interest there is, the more hard they are but the more excited people are". It's Christmas time but I love it, I watched these games when I was not part of the Premier League.

"We should use this opportunity on the pitch, all the nice stories are written on the pitch, in the stadium, with big respect because that's what it stands for".
