Klopp on Haaland: "The best striker in the world at the moment"

For Jürgen Klopp, Erling Haaland is currently the best striker in the world. Ahead of Sunday's clash with Manchester City, the Liverpool boss revealed how his side intend to stop the prolific Norwegian.

Haaland is "currently the best striker in the world," Klopp introduced his remarks at the matchday press conference. "We have to make sure he doesn't get too many balls. We have to defend situations before we go head-to-head with him," he continued. "We'll at least try."

Haaland has taken the Premier League by storm since moving from Dortmund. After nine matchdays, the Norwegian leads the list of top scorers with 15 goals and a wide margin. In Klopp's eyes, the 22-year-old owes the many goals to one quality in addition to his technical and physical abilities: "His orientation on the pitch is extraordinary. He always knows where the crucial gaps open up and is almost never in the Offside." A few weeks ago, the Norwegian sports psychologist Geir Jordet came to a similar conclusion.

However, Klopp emphasized that Haaland was not the only player his team would have to keep an eye on on Sunday. "The problem against City is that if you take Haaland out of the game, you open the game up to all their other world-class players," said the Reds coach.
