The Reds make their second trip to the London Stadium on Saturday evening, taking on Slaven Bilic’s under-fire Hammers as they look to build momentum after recent victories.
The German will be hoping for a similarly strong display this weekend, following 3-0 wins over Huddersfield Town and Maribor in the past seven days.
Speaking at Melwood on Friday afternoon, Klopp discussed the Hammers’ disappointing start to the season, insisting “we respect them a lot.”
“I’m not sure if they’re really struggling. They had good results, [and were] really good against Tottenham,” he added.
“We respect them a lot, so we know who we’ll face. The analysis was about the last three or four games, so they were really good.”
Klopp also provided a fitness update ahead of the November international break, with Philippe Coutinho set to miss out on Saturday.
