Liverpool vs Chelsea: What does Jurgen Klopp make about Chelsea’s form of late?

The game of the mid-week will take place at Anfield when Liverpool host Chelsea for a mouth-watering Premier League contest. The clash between the Reds and the Blues have also been one to watch for in the English top flight. Even though Chelsea are not playing at their usual best, they have enough quality in their ranks to cause an upset at Anfield, something which the home side is very well aware of.

Liverpool will need to get the win to maintain their lead at the top of the Premier League table, however, it will not be easy against Chelsea, who are slowly starting to find their feet in recent weeks. The two sides faced each other earlier in the season when the game ended 1-1 at Stamford Bridge. With that game coming too early in the campaign, both sides were not at their fluid best in the fixture. Comparing Chelsea from then to now, Jurgen Klopp revealed how content he was with the result that day.

It’s a team in form points-wise: Jurgen Klopp on Chelsea

“Of course, they play really good stuff. It’s a really good team. [They have] an outstanding manager obviously and nobody was ever [in] doubt about that. So, I’m not 100 per cent sure, but I think it’s a team in form points-wise [and] won the majority of their games recently. We played them on the first matchday, obviously there we were not great that day and they were pretty good and we got a draw, which was fine for us that day. We were not over the moon with our performance but the point was alright. So, we have to do better but we are different as well since then and that’s the good news,” Klopp, quoted on the club’s website, said ahead of the game.

Klopp then showed sympathy to Chelsea due to the massive number of injuries they have suffered this season. However, he feels that the Blues are heading in the right direction following their recent run of results. Asked about what is different in Chelsea’s approach, Klopp replied, “Obviously Chelsea have not only an incredible amount of players, [which] everybody knows, but they have an incredible amount of injuries as well. The players who are not available for them and stuff like this makes life really uncomfortable for each team and for each manager. I think now they have their core group together,” he explained.

The manager added: “They have the midfield they want to play. They have probably the last line besides Reece James. Up front they have the player on the pitch they want to play. So, that’s Chelsea now. For a long time they couldn’t line up like that and that’s obviously very different. That’s why if you go through the team it’s just a really, really good football team… you cannot see that in the table yet but [in the] last few weeks they made big steps in the table as well. It’s not important where you stand in the moment in the table, it’s where you go from there. I expect them to make big steps but actually I want them to start after our game.”
