Jurgen Klopp ‘under pressure’ if he loses to Manchester City claims pundit

Liverpool have won two and lost two in pre-season as the Reds prepare for another gruelling season in the limelight.

Having lost out on the Premier League and Champions League in the space of a week at the end of last season, they will be hoping to get off to a good start this year.

First up they have the Community Shield, a ‘trophy’ not won by Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool, this Saturday at the King Power Stadium.

A game that Klopp dare not lose according to one pundit who claims it could see the German manager under pressure if they do.

Pressure on Klopp?

TalkSport pundit and former PL player Trevor Sinclair has claimed that Liverpool’s pre-season loss to Manchester City puts pressure on their Community Shield game with Manchester City.

“Both of these sides have been involved in big games this pre-season but one that stands out to me is the Manchester United result that Liverpool had.

“I think that’s put a bit of added pressure on Jurgen Klopp that he doesn’t want to get beaten off another Manchester club in the way that they got beaten off United.

He also revealed that they will want to produce a good performance to kick off their season.

“On the back of that I think it adds a bit of pressure to Klopp and his team to make sure while everybody is watching, I think they’ll want to make a good account of themselves and a better account of themselves than they did against United.”

Liverpool face City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon with Klopp looking to finally win the Shield following losses to Arsenal and City in recent years. The Reds haven’t won it since 2006.
