Klopp expects tough test against WBA

Jurgen Klopp believes that West Bromwich Albion will be a difficult opponent for his side as the Baggies visits Anfield on Saturday.

West Bromwich did an excellent job of keeping Tottenham Hotspur to draw last weekend, and almost got away with all three points, but a late equalizer for Spurs through Dele Alli saved a point. WBA has a clear idea of how they play. Hard-nosed physical play and slowing down of the tempo is their bread and butter. Klopp thinks that the game won’t be easy for his side.

“The differences between the Premier League and all the other leagues in world football is that [there are] big individual qualities in all of these teams,” Klopp said. “I think we all know the reason for it and that’s the big difference.

“Nobody will go through and have at the end 120 points or something because there are a lot of difficult hurdles to jump over and West Brom is for sure one of them. They fight for every point.

“I respect them all and I showed it last year when we played West Brom. I celebrated the point and it was a little bit surprising for most of the people but I was happy.

“I don’t know in this moment if I would celebrate a draw again, it depends on the game we play on Saturday. Everything’s possible.”

Last season when the teams met, it ended in a 2-2 draw after a late equalizer by Divock Origi.
