- Jurgen Klopp will not be putting his hope on Man United ahead of the Manchester derby
- Pep Guardiola's side will play Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men in a blockbuster at Old Trafford
- Liverpool will be expecting the Red Devils to win or draw to hand them an opportunity
Jurgen Klopp is not relying on Manchester United getting a result against city rivals Manchester City in their midweek clash at Old Trafford.
Liverpool are looking to clinch their first Premier League title in 29 years but their hopes lie on their greatest rivals getting a result against City.
The Red Devils are the highest-placed team remaining for Pep Guardiola's side to play in the remaining three Premier League matches left.
But United who lost 4-0 to Everton at Goodison Park last weekend have now lost their last five matches in all competitions under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Speaking to Sky Sports after Liverpool's 2-0 win at Cardiff, Klopp was asked if he will be on the edge of his seat watching Wednesday's clash at Old Trafford.
"I think I'll be watching if there's nothing else to do,' he said. "Hopefully I can avoid that (shouting), we have no influence.
"It doesn't look like at the moment that Man Utd can really... what was the result today? 3-0? 4-0?
"So we'll see, City will be ready and we'll see if United are ready as well. It's a normal game, it's a game they have to play, we played there and had a draw.
"We had to play that game at Manchester United when they were in a much better moment. It was a 0-0.
"If United gets a point and whatever and we beat Huddersfield then go to Newcastle and even half think we have it, then we get a knock there, it's all difficult.
"We just have to stay focused on our things. That's what has worked really well so far and I don't see any reason why we should change that."

Liverpool are the top of the Premier League table by a point over City but have played a game more.
And a win for Guardiola's side would put them a point above Liverpool with both teams having three games remaining, but a draw would leave the Reds' fate in their own hands.
City will travel to Turf Moore to play Burnley, then host Leicester at the Etihad and play their last game of the season against Brighton.
Liverpool on the other hand, will host Huddersfield at Anfield, then play Newcastle away and end the season at home to Wolves.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Mohamed Salah has asked to leave Liverpool at the end of the season, according to a sensational report in the Spanish press.
According to Spanish news media outlet AS, Salah wants to end his spell with Liverpool and he is ready to listen to offers in the summer.
