Cherries boss Eddie Howe branded Liverpool “stronger mentally, physically and tactically” now than two years hence, leaving Klopp hopeful of maintaining that ruthless streak.
“I could probably draw for you the goals we conceded that day; we let Bournemouth come back into that game,” said Klopp, of Liverpool’s dramatic 4-3 defeat at Dean Court two years ago.
“Unfortunately I cannot say that will never happen again but we are really more controlled in these situations now. It was a big step for us; very important.
“Last year we were really flying and everything was brilliant, until we were not flying.
“The difference between flying and not flying was quick last year.
“It was something we wanted to work on. It’s worked out. That’s good. A few new players have come in and other players are more mature.
“This squad is still not too experienced, that’s how it is. But we still have to improve, that’s clear.”
Liverpool equalled the class of 2008’s 17-match league unbeaten run at Bournemouth, and could now eclipse that record by avoiding defeat against rivals Manchester United on December 16.
When quizzed on the difference the outstanding defender Virgil Van Dijk has made to Liverpool’s spine, Klopp insisted the collective must take the credit.
“He has absolutely no rhythm, but he trains on the highest level, and he’s not even in the squad sometimes. But then he plays and is excellent.
“So it’s not about one person.
“The centre-half alone can do nothing. Nobody can perform wonders. So we need all these boys around.”
In hailing Liverpool’s growing resolve, Bournemouth boss Howe revealed he hopes for positive news on striker Callum Wilson’s hamstring injury.
England hitman Wilson was a late withdrawal from Saturday’s clash, but Howe hopes he will be back in action with little delay.
“Liverpool look stronger mentally, physically and tactically than they were in the past,” said Howe.
“We did miss Callum, that unique mix of pace and trickery that might have caused Liverpool’s backline problems.
“I don’t think it’s going to be long-term for him though, it’s a grade one hamstring injury, so we’ll try to get him fit for Wolves.”
