Liverpool news: Reds have to go 'all in' against Manchester City in FA Cup, says Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool face Manchester City for the second time in the span of a week on Saturday, as the two powerhouses of English football look to book their spot in the FA Cup final.

After a 2-2 draw in the league last Sunday, Manchester City and Liverpool won't be able to settle for a draw this time around, with the two sides preparing for a blockbuster FA Cup semi-final clash.

Both teams have pieced together incredible unbeaten runs over the past months, with City going 10 games since their last loss, while Liverpool's only defeat since December came in March against Inter Milan in the Champions League.

With a cup final up for grabs, it's bound to be another action-packed display at Wembley Stadium, and Jurgen Klopp has stated his side are ready to go "all in" against their rivals.

The Reds are still eyeing up a remarkable quadruple this season, and Klopp insists his side have to view every game from now until the end of the season as a final if they are to come close to achieving that feat.

"It has to be treated like a final, we have to," said Klopp. "In an ideal world we have 12 games, that means the 10 around we treat like finals.

"That's how it is pretty much and that's how we approached it already since January since we started this little mission. You have to go all-in.

"Imagine now if we would play against City and would think, 'Yeah, maybe we can (do) a little bit less there, there a little bit less'. No.

"Any way, against City you always have to see it as a final but now it is the semi-final, it means it's the only way to get to the final and we actually want to go there."

While Klopp has enjoyed plenty of success since arriving at Anfield in 2015, the FA Cup remains the only trophy he is yet to win with Liverpool.

Reaching the semi-final this year is the furthest the Merseyside club have gone under the German coach. With their last FA Cup success coming in 2006, Klopp will be eager to end their barren run in the tournament.

"Massive competition, massive competition," added Klopp.

"Obviously so far we didn't even go to the semis yet, so it's the first experience in the semi-finals at Wembley - but better late than never.

"Now we are there and it means everything to us, to be honest. I hope our people can get to London and that we have the atmosphere a semi-final between Liverpool and City deserves."

The two sides are set to go head-to-head at Wembley on Saturday, with kick-off scheduled for 15:30 BST.
