Liverpool vs Genk: What has been said?

Liverpool face title rivals Manchester City on Sunday but Klopp insists his players will be fully focused on tonight’s tie.

He said: “You can say the words Man City, you just cannot think about it.

“The story the boys wrote in the last three years was only possible because we were always focused on the next game.

“No-one thinks, and I don’t have to tell them, ‘City is on Sunday, tomorrow is Genk’.

“We have bigger ambitions in this competition than tomorrow night so we have to be 100 per cent spot on.

“We have to make sure we get these three points and that only works if you are 100 per cent focused on that.

“I don’t doubt my players at all, I would feel a bit embarrassed if I had to tell them, ‘Don’t think about Man City already’.”
