Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool should not underestimate Huddersfield

Jurgen Klopp held his pre-match press conference for Huddersfield on Friday morning.

During the press conference, Klopp spoke about numerous topics, one of which was why Liverpool should not underestimate Huddersfield, despite their recent bad form.

‘This game is a trap, a 100 per cent trap’

Speaking ahead of Huddersfield, Klopp stated:

“I watch them more because I want to see how David is doing.

“It’s a typical football thing – I heard a few people talking about Huddersfield: ‘Not good enough here, not good enough there, they have to score more.’ They had more possession against Tottenham than Tottenham. Not a lot of teams can say that about themselves. At Burnley they had more possession.

“They play proper football, they are difficult to catch. They play different systems. So far it was unlucky.

“This game is a trap, a 100 per cent trap.

“We are third with 20 points, they are pretty much bottom of the table. That’s why analysis is so important; if you only used the table to analyse a team, you would say ‘They don’t score a lot, they conceded a few and they are third from the bottom so obviously not a good football team.’ Then we’d have a big problem.

“But, thank God, we have a lot of people working on analysis, not only against PSG or whatever. That’s good, so we have all the information we need.”
