Liverpool head to Stamford Bridge on Saturday knowing three points would make them just the second team in Premier League history to win its opening seven matches.
More importantly, a victory would take them five points clear of Maurizio Sarri’s team and keep them clear of Man City at the top.
Speaking to reporters at Melwood ahead of the game, Klopp gave some typically honest thoughts on the upcoming fixture.
He also touched upon the match itself, admitting it is likely to be a tight contest, with Wednesday’s League Cup defeat hopefully working in their favour.
“It will be tough, intense for both sides,” Klopp said.
“It’s a big one. It already sounds good, and we have to make sure it is good. Both teams know it won’t be an easy game.
“The best preparation for Saturday’s game is Wednesday’s game.”
“Very good, very, very good,” he added.
“When he came in, that was what I wanted from him. I didn’t want to fill him with information about the way he defends.
“I wanted him only to play football.”
Victory would be massive on Saturday evening, but having to overcome a side who have only dropped two points in the league makes it Liverpool’s sternest test yet in 2018/19.
