Liverpool and Manchester are battling for Premier League supremacy this season.
Reigning champions Manchester City are just a point ahead of second-placed Liverpool and this fixture would decide the leader of the Premier League table.
Pep Guardiola rates Klopp very high in his managerial career even higher than his long-time rival Jose Mourinho.
So a win could secure Man City’s lead in the Premier League table.
“In the last five years they have been the biggest opponent. They have been an incredible, marvellous contender, with good games,” Guardiola told reporters on Friday.
“Jurgen, as a manager, has been the biggest rival I’ve ever had in my career and I think what both teams propose is good for football.
“Except the year we made 100 points, the rest were tight. It is because they are good and hopefully they think we are good too.
“I will remember my period here, when I’m retired watching and playing golf, I’ll remember my biggest rival was Liverpool, for sure.”
