Neuer, excited to play at Anfield

The Bayern Munich goalkeeper is anxious to play in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 match against Liverpool.

On February 19th, Liverpool will host Bayern Munich at Anfield as part of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.

The first leg of the series will see Manuel Neuer visit the historic stadium, as both teams will battle it out for a ticket to the next round.

“I am fine, it’s not that bad,” Neuer told ESPN as he recovers from a small injury.

“I think our medical [staff] will push me into the goal and if everything is fine in training, I will play [against Liverpool].”

“We are all positive. I think I will be between the sticks,” he added.

“It’s the first game for me at Anfield. I’m looking forward to playing there.”

“We have heard a lot about the atmosphere in the stadium — everyone who watches football knows it’s special — and I think they will be two great games,” he continued.

Jurgen Klopp thinks Arsenal can challenge for Premier League

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp reckons that Arsenal's summer transfer business has made contenders for the Premier League crown.

“For us, the Champions League is very important. It is a knockout tie, two finals. We are happy to play in their stadium.”

“Hopefully, it will be a great night for us. But it depends on the result, of course,” the German goalkeeper concluded.

On the German Bundesliga, Bayern Munich is currently in second place of the table with 45 points after 21 matches.

The team is five points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund.

Meanwhile, Liverpool is second too in the English Premier League with 65 points, tied in with first-place Manchester City with a smaller goal difference and one game played less.
