Jurgen Klopp spoke to reporters at Melwood on Friday afternoon, to preview Liverpool’s trip to take on Leicester City in the Premier League this weekend.

The Reds play for the last time before the September international break when they travel to the King Power on Saturday to face off against the 2015/16 champions.

Leicester have enjoyed a strong start to the season with victories over Wolves, Southampton and Fleetwood Town, along with a 3-2 defeat to Man United which they arguably deserved to win.

And Klopp is clearly not underestimating the Foxes, as he explained during his pre-match press conference.

“It’s a very good team. The work of Claude Puel is starting to pay off,” he said.

“The preparation for the game was really interesting because Leicester are playing good football.

“They’re full of confidence, especially after the last result. It will be difficult for us, but we are in a good moment as well.

“We go there and really try everything to get the result we deserve in the end. Maybe we can deserve a win. We have to be at our best, that’s it.”

The manager also explained why Liverpool have employed the services of throw-in coach Thomas Gronnemark, saying “you cannot have enough specialists around.”

And Klopp discussed the possibility of changes, saying “it’s about what fits for the opponent.”

Liverpool head into the weekend top of the table, having defeated West Ham, Crystal Palace and Brighton, and will be eager to remain there after a difficult trip to the East Midlands.
