Cape Town - Liverpool right-back Nathaniel Clyne has given an insight into what manager Jurgen Klopp expects from his players.

The England international has been an ever-present in Klopp's Liverpool team since signing for the club in July 2015.

The 25-year-old has already tallied up 60 appearances for the Reds, and is widely regarded as one of the best English right-backs in the Premier League.

Clyne has started all of Liverpool's matches this season and has helped the side to move up to fourth in the table.

Nonetheless, the defender has outlined what Klopp expects from the players in his team.

"With the way he wants to play, he wants us to press, press and counter-press," Clyne told Goal.com website. 

"We need to be really fit and we worked really hard in pre-season and training to get us to where we want to be.

"Everyone wants to do well for their manager because he gets involved.

"He basically wants to be on the pitch and you can see that from the goal celebrations when he runs up and down the touchline.

"If you see a manager do that, it makes you put in even more effort on the pitch."

Meanwhile, Liverpool will face old foes Manchester United in a much anticipated Premier League clash next week Monday, October 17.
