The Reds take to Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon looking to get the season off to a strong start, facing off against Marco Silva’s Hornets.
After a productive season, Klopp’s side will be confident heading to Hertfordshire, and the German was in positive spirits at Melwood ahead of the trip.
“We saw a few games in pre-season, we should be prepared as well as possible,” he said of Liverpool’s opponents.
“[Silva]’s a very dominant coach, we saw a lot of what he brought in at Hull. You can see a lot of his philosophy [at Watford].
“Maybe it’s easier with the crowd at your back [at home], bringing this 20 or 30 percent.
“The style of play is clear, it’s a football-playing side. We know where we have to defend and where we have to use the space.”
Klopp also discussed Philippe Coutinho‘s future, with club owners Fenway Sports Group issuing a hands-off warning to Barcelona earlier on Friday.
And while the 50-year-old was emphatic in his stance over the Brazilian, he moved to rule him out of Saturday’s clash due to a back injury, along with four others.
Klopp will be able to call upon new signing Mohamed Salah, however, and he is clearly relishing the prospect of fielding the Egyptian.
“Offensively, he’s natural, and that’s really cool. We want to keep that, that’s how it is,” he said.
“It makes us more difficult to defend, because speed is the most difficult thing to defend in football.”
