Juergen Klopp happy to park bus at Manchester United for ticket to second place

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp believes that Saturday's Premier League clash with Manchester United is not a battle of playing styles and said he would have no problem 'parking the bus' to stop United's attack.

Attack-minded Liverpool have blown away teams this season with their free-flowing style of play while United have often been criticised for being uncharacteristically defensive and pragmatic under Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho.

Klopp said the blockbuster Old Trafford meeting between the two teams who are fighting for second place behind runaway leaders Manchester City did not represent a clash of philosophies.

The German manager said he would not hesitate switching to a more defensive approach to stop United's front line.

A win for third-placed Liverpool will take them to 63 points and a point above United into second. Klopp said his team did not need any more reasons to understand the game's importance.
