EPL: Klopp predicts what will happen to Man City against Newcastle this weekend

Man City players vs Real Madrid

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has backed Manchester City to bounce back from their Champions League exit, when they take on Newcastle United in the Premier League this weekend.

Pep Guardiola’s side had a two-goal advantage on aggregate after 89 minutes of Wednesday’s second leg against Madrid.

However, Rodrygo struck twice in the 90th and 91st minutes and took the tie to extra-time.

In-form striker, Karim Benzema, scored a penalty early in the first period to knock out City.

But Klopp doubts City’s players will be suffering a hangover from the defeat on Sunday when Newcastle arrive at the Etihad Stadium.

“It was a massive blow. I think everyone was ready to switch the TV off,” Klopp said.

“It was really harsh, I can imagine. I had nights like this, not cool but they will be ready for Sunday.”
