Why Liverpool have 'more enemies' than other clubs


Manager Jurgen Klopp says his club have more natural adversaries than their rivals

Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool have more enemies than other clubs but does not think their Premier League dominance this season has increased that number.

Number one arch-rivals Manchester United, the only side to so far take any points off the runaway leaders, arrive at Anfield on Sunday looking to repeat the feat of October when they led Klopp’s side until the final five minutes of a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

Near-neighbours Everton are the other obvious enemy while Klopp admits Manchester City, who they ran close to the title last season, have now emerged as a third. But he believes there are other, more surprising ones.

“ Liverpool is obviously the natural enemy of some clubs; we have more natural enemies than other clubs have, probably because of our history and how successful the club was,” he said.

“When we play United it’s the most important game of the year. When we play Everton it’s the most important game of the year.

“Now City is becoming more and more this kind of ‘football enemy’.
