"I would not like my players, when they see me on TV and read in the newspapers, [to see] the manager talking about another thing like they are not important".
Sunday's encounter with City at Anfield will be fourth-placed Liverpool's first match since the departure of Brazil playmaker Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona. How has that transfer affected the rest of Jurgen Klopp's team? "When they all played it left them exposed", he said.
"Sometimes you try things and they come off".
Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino still combine to form a risky attacking trident, and the addition of big-money center back Virgil van Dijk should help Liverpool both in the back and on set pieces, where City could be more vulnerable.
"Maybe Arsene (Wenger) is anxious about that, but I tell him many times: 2004, that run is for him". Any result is possible when Liverpool take to the pitch but if they turn it on this weekend, expect them to inflict City's first domestic setback of the campaign. I don't make a decision if he is ready for that.
"And I remember an unbelievable save by Peter Schmeichel from Milan Baros at the Anfield Road End when it was 1-1".
After losing the Champions League final against Barcelona in 2006 the talented left-back controversially chose to move to the Gunners London rivals Chelsea. Bristol City adopted a similar strategy in midweek and Lee Johnson's reward for being adventurous at the Etihad Stadium was forced errors out of Eliaquim Mangala and John Stones, which contributed to the Championship side's opening goal. He'll be a set-piece threat when Manchester City come visiting. "But the City game is a completely different game. I think it will be a good entertaining draw".
