City's statistics are there for all to see, and they offer a measure of just how revolutionary and dominant Pep Guardiola's "juego de posicion" (positional play) philosophy has been.

Klopp, who has won three of this season's four head-to-head meetings with the Mancunian Blues, said: "Of course I don't fear the challenge".

Most of this is based on the team put together by the Spaniard and how he has managed to instill his philosophy in them, which for much of the season his players have carried out to the tee.
