Klopp: Guardiola's watching brief proves Liverpool-City is special.

Liverpool boss expecting a clash to remember.

It is because Liverpool's fixture against Manchester City is a "special game" that is why Pep Guardiola attended the Reds' clash with Stoke on Tuesday, according to Jurgen Klopp. The Merseyside club came from a goal down to seal a 4-1 over the Potters at Anfield on as they moved into second spot - one point ahead of the Guardiola's Citizens. However, speaking ahead of the match on Saturday, the German said as Omnisport reported: "It is [a big game]. It is for both. I heard Pep Guardiola was in the stadium; I am not sure he watched a lot of games in the last few weeks from the stadiums of the opponents, so that's a first sign it's a special game and we are already looking forward to it.

The former Barcelona and Bayern coach takes his men to Merseyside on New Year’s Eve and will be keen to out play Klopp's energetic Reds.
