However, the manager has shown confidence in the team stating that, “Atalanta would be a threat without a point to prove, to be honest
“The night in Atalanta was really special, we played exceptionally well, and pretty much everything was right. Things came together and we won the game the way we won it.
“We know that this game has nothing to do with the game tomorrow night. We know that we have to be ready again. Atalanta are a top team with a special way to play. We did well at Atalanta, but we need to do well again otherwise we will have problems.
“I expect problems, to be honest, because it’s always like this. But we try to work on the solutions in the short period of time we have.” Klopp said.
He further added that “It’s all on the table, it’s clear that if we win then some problems will be sorted. But we have to play, be ready to work really, really hard against them.
“This man-marking system is really difficult to play, that’s why they were so successful in the past years. They will not change, they will play in a similar way. We will see who we can line up tomorrow and try to make the best of situation.” he said.
