STORY: Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp enjoyed the first win of his Premier League career at a stumbling Chelsea last October but expects a much tougher challenge when his side return to Stamford Bridge on Friday (September 16).

Liverpool have been buoyed by the 4-1 thrashing of Premier League champions Leicester City last weekend but Chelsea now have Italian Antonio Conte in charge and have made a strong start after last year’s slump.

Former Juventus and Italy coach Conte, dubbed the ‘Pep Guardiola of Turin’ by Klopp, joined Chelsea after Euro 2016 and has led the former champions to three wins in four league games this season putting them second in the table.

Speaking on Wednesday (September 14) about Conte’s time at Juventus, Klopp said: “He created a special kind of play and had a very successful time there and very successful with the Italian national team and it’s quite impressive what he did until now but, again, I don’t play against Antonio Conte.”

Chelsea drew 2-2 at Swansea last weekend with both Chelsea goals coming from Diego Costa.

Asked about Costa, whose aggressive style of play makes him a target for abuse from opposition fans, Klopp described the Spaniard as world class.

“If other supporters love you it’s not a good sign,” he said with a laugh.

“He’s a real warrior on the pitch, uses his body all the time, that’s quality and he was nearly unstoppable against Swansea.”

The German’s side won 3-1 in west London last year with Philippe Coutinho scoring twice but Klopp warned Chelsea look better this season.

“Games against Chelsea are always special things in the Premier League,” said the German, whose team won 3-1 in west London last year with Philippe Coutinho scoring twice.

“They’re a strong side and in a good moment. Last season was not a Chelsea season, obviously, and now they are back on track and that’s how it is and so we need to be ready for a real challenge.”

Liverpool’s Croatia defender Dejan Lovren will return to the squad after missing the Leicester game with a bruised eye but midfielder Emre Can is still returning to fitness after an ankle injury sustained in August.
