Liverpool boss underlines set-piece threat
Jurgen Klopp has revealed he expects West Brom to pose a tough threat when they visit Anfield on Saturday.
Tony Pulis’ side claimed a 2-2 draw last season, but Klopp has vowed not to take them lightly this time around.
The Reds now have a run of league fixtures against West Brom, Crystal Palace and Watford, all of whom they dropped points to early in Klopp’s tenure.
“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,” said Klopp. “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.”
