Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has described Chelsea as a “really exciting team” ahead of facing the Blues at Stamford Bridge this weekend.

Klopp and co. travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea on Sunday.

Ahead of the game, Klopp has warned his players about the tough game he expects from the Blues.

“It’s not my job to talk about other managers but what I can say is they play exciting football,” Klopp said at his pre-match press conference.

“I have to look back at their Champions League game. They have played different systems and that is interesting. A really exciting football team. Young and really good. It’s no surprise.”

The German also has praised his opposite Frank Lampard.

“Lampard did an outstanding job at Derby, so I am not surprised by him at Chelsea,” said Klopp. “But it is a difficult league. I can see some people are not happy with some results but that is not because of him. He is a really good manager.”

Klopp signed Christian Pulisic for Borussia Dortmund at the age of 15 in February 2015 but left the club at the end of that season.

Pulisic joined Chelsea for  €64 million.

“He will be a proper player,” Klopp told a news conference ahead of the clash with Chelsea. “He’s a talent, dynamic, good with both feet. Super exciting player, good signing.”
