Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has described his side's upcoming encounter
with Chelsea as huge.
Liverpool face Chelsea in the Premier League for the first time this season with Chelsea in terrible form and Liverpool beginning to pick up with three draws and a win in their last four games.
“It is a big match but it’s football and I’ve been in this job 15 years – I’ve had some big matches,” Klopp said, reports Liverpoolfc.com. “First of all you have to respect that it’s a match you can win.
“That’s the cool thing in football and that’s what I think about, nothing else. I don’t read the newspapers so I don’t know what you think about this game, but it wouldn’t change anything in my mind.
“I’m full of motivation to win not only games like this, but football games.
“The better the opponent, the more excited the world around us. We have a chance to improve our situation and that’s what we want to do. Not think too much about the opponent.
“We have to look at how they play and where we can close spaces so they can’t play like they want to. And where we can use spaces, where they don’t like to defend for example. These are the things I’m thinking about.”
