Liverpool FC manager thinks Man United prepared Reds for West Brom
Jurgen Klopp expecting another defensive performance from a visiting team at Anfield
October 21st, 2016
Liverpool are capable of destroying any team in the Premier League this season although they were thwarted by Manchester United on Monday.
The Red Devils restricted their opponents to just a handful of chances to come away with a goalless draw, with Jurgen Klopp believing that this match has provided ideal practice for Saturday’s clash against West Brom.
Klopp expects Albion to defend in numbers and hopes that the team’s experience against United will stand them in good stead.
Klopp said: “We all know we have had to watch out for a few problems that we had last season, although we are not suffering from the same amount.
“We are a football-playing side and Manchester United were more physical and stronger than we were with a lot of tall players. We did it well and I cannot remember there was a big advantage in this game out of these situations.
“We need to be ready again for situations like this [on Saturday]. You can always use a few things from the last game but on the other hand it will be different again. Defending these balls was important, very important in the United game and will be important in the next game.
“Playing football would have been important in the Man United game too and will be very important in the West Brom game. There is a lot of work to do.”
