Chelsea´s tough title defence was to be expected - Klopp

Antonio Conte's Blues are on a roll with six wins out of seven in all competitions, while Liverpool go in search of their fourth successive Premier League victory.

The 48-year-old said: "It was a problem to land".

"If he would have played better at Chelsea we would not have him probably so I'm happy about the situation".

Mohamed Salah comes face-to-face with his former club on Saturday, as Liverpool welcome Chelsea to Anfield.

"If Chelsea come to Anfield and sit deep, the game will be hard". He's also a very good finisher.

And Klopp believes the struggles Salah experienced at Chelsea should have been expected, of a young player trying to break into a settled squad. But if they come and play the way they can, and are more offensive, I think it plays into Liverpool's hands, it leaves space for the likes of Mane and Salah to capitalise.

"But we have to do this and today we've had a good training session and we've tried to prepare for the game against Liverpool very well".

But the agency says nonfarm employment has fallen for three consecutive months by a total of 3,900 jobs, to 495,800 in October. State and local unemployment rates are at their lowest levels in almost two decades.

Providing Liverpool do get their tactics right, I can envisage both sides scoring but I just keep coming back to their defensive frailties and can see Chelsea coming out on top in an entertaining encounter. He's a good player and very risky.

"For sure it won't be easy because we are facing a really good team, a strong team, especially at home".

"We like to live the game, with intensity, with passion, to stay on the touchline and try to help our players", he added.

"They have a good coach, a good identity and great organisation, especially offensively they are very unsafe so we must pay great attention".

"We had a great first half and then in the second half we let everything unravel and so we were all feeling very frustrated".

"I consider [Klopp] one of the best coaches in the world".
