The fierce rivals meet on Monday night with both teams having endured a disappointing start to the Premier League campaign. Liverpool have opened the season with consecutive draws, though their opponents are rooted to the bottom of the division after losses to Brighton and Brentford.
Klopp’s team will begin as favourites and won 9-0 on aggregate across the two meetings last season, including a 5-0 win at Old Trafford that saw Mohamed Salah score a hat-trick.
However, the German insists past results count for nothing ahead of the latest showdown between England’s most successful sides.
“I couldn’t be less interested in results from last year, they are different games and different situations,” said Klopp at his pre-match press conference.
“This is completely different and that’s it.”
United suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat at Brentford last weekend, conceding four goals inside the first 35 minutes of a Premier League game for the first time.
Klopp admits he is unsure whether the Red Devils will ring the changes after that result and discussed the difficulty in preparing to face Erik ten Hag’s struggling side.
“United can change nothing or everything, so we don’t know, it is really tricky preparation-wise, but it’s early in the season and we don’t have a lot of info anyway.
“It’s tough but it’s fine. United away will never be easy so we try to do our absolute best.”
“I listened to Gabby Agbonlahor, he lost against us 6-0 in my first year, I couldn’t remember him as a mentality monster on the pitch.”
