'Why should we help them?!' - Klopp on Man Utd demise

The Liverpool boss joked that, after the Red Devils' failure to defeat Manchester City to help their rivals, he has no reason to assist them


Jurgen Klopp laughed off a question regarding Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United and what the Norwegian needs to do to turn things around, insisting he sees no reason to offer them assistance.
When asked about the similarities between what he's done at Liverpool and what Solskjaer must do to turn it around at Old Trafford, he told reporters: "They didn't help us, why should we help them?!"
Asked for his thoughts on the Manchester derby, which City won 2-0 courtesy of goals from Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane, Klopp added: "It was the result I expected.
"United tried whatever they can, first half especially. Unlucky in one or two moments, but over 95 mins it was clear they cant stand up to City at the moment."
The result in the Manchester derby means that City moved a point above Liverpool at the top of the table with three games remaining for both sides.
Pep Guardiola's side's remaining fixtures see them face Burnley away next before hosting Leicester City on May 6 and then finishing the season with an away trip to struggling Brighton.
Liverpool, meanwhile, take on Huddersfield in the Friday evening fixture this week, before an away fixture against Newcastle wedged in between the Champions League semi-final showdown with Barcelona.
The Reds conclude the season against Wolves at home on the final day, and Klopp added on the title race as we enter the final weeks of the season: "However the season ends up, it is only the first step.
"We are not finished, not the finished article. We will carry on, and we will see."
