​Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he isn't confident Manchester United can pick up a result against Manchester City on Wednesday evening.


United head in to Wednesday's derby as huge underdogs after their recent poor form culminated in an embarrassing 4-0 defeat against Everton on Sunday. However, if the Red Devils are able to pull off a result, then it would give Liverpool the upper hand in the Premier League title race heading into the final three games of the season.

Whilst ​Liverpool supporters will no doubt be cheering on ​United for the first and potentially last time, Klopp was less than optimistic about a positive outcome from the derby, claiming that United don't look capable of picking up a result.


"I think I'll be watching if there's nothing else to do," he said, as per the ​Daily Mail"It doesn't look like at the moment that Man Utd can really... what was the result? 3-0? 4-0?

"So we'll see, City will be ready and we'll see if United are ready as well. It's a normal game, it's a game they have to play, we played there and had a draw.


"We had to play that game at Manchester United when they were in a much better moment. It was a 0-0."


Klopp was also quick to point out that, even if United were to take some points off ​City, then it does not change the situation for Liverpool going in to the final stages of the season.

"If United gets a point and whatever and we beat Huddersfield then go to Newcastle and even half think we have it, then we get a knock there, it's all difficult.


"We just have to stay focused on our things. That's what has worked really well so far and I don't see any reason why we should change that."
