Jurgen Klopp has accused the media of attempting to create a ‘banana skin’ for his Liverpool side ahead of Sunday’s grudge match against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Sky Sports pundit and former Manchester City star Danny Mills claimed not a single United player would be worthy a place in the European champions’ starting line-up, picking a controversial all-Liverprool combined XI earlier this week.

‘When Sky made a combined line-up of 11 Liverpool payers, it’s a joke and building a banana skin,’ said Klopp at his pre-match press conference.

‘I am aware of the strength of the Man Utd.’

Liverpool. who already enjoy an eight point lead at the top of the table, can extend their record breaking 17-game Premier League winning run with victory at Old Trafford, while defeat could leave United in the relegation zone come the final whistle.

Despite the enormous chasm in quality and confidence between the two teams, Klopp is wily enough to know United will be at their best come Sunday.

‘We are not nervous because of the winning streak and the history we could make. We are very relaxed and very ambitious as well,’ said Klopp.

‘We have to make sure if United want to change their season, they have to wait a week.

‘Premier League games, all of them are really intense. I wouldn’t have realised the difference until there are 500 people in the room. Whatever they do we have to be prepared for that

‘We respect them as the best Man United team we could face.’
