Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp revealed that James Milner has been telling him all about midweek opponents Leeds United - but it's another Yorkshire club in the Championship that he's most fond of.

The Reds beat Leeds 2-0 in the EFL Cup last 8 on Tuesday, and in the programme notes ahead of the game told us all about the conversations the German and make-shift left back have been having in training. 

Klopp confirmed he had a soft spot for Leeds' rivals Huddersfield in the second tier - because their manager is a close friend of his.

He said: "Leeds are one of the great teams of England I believe - big history, big support. I know this because James Milner always tells me, again and again and again.

"Millie has told me all the great things about this club and this city - even when I do not ask him. 

Huddersfield Town v Liverpool - Pre-Season Friendly

"He doesn't like the fact I support Huddersfield Town in the Championship because my best friend David Wagner is there. So I am sorry for this Millie - but I hope Huddersfield finish as the top Yorkshire team this season."
