Jurgen Klopp compares Chelsea to his old Borussia Dortmund side

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has today drawn comparisons between his side’s opponents this weekend, Chelsea, and his former charges at Borussia Dortmund.

Chelsea vs Liverpool

The Reds are set to travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening, for their latest Premier League outing.

Liverpool head into proceedings sitting pretty atop the English top-flight table, having racked up 5 wins from their opening 5 league fixtures of the campaign.

The Merseysiders’ latest outing, in the Champions League on Tuesday night, though, saw them put to the sword by 2 goals to nil at Serie A giants Napoli.

Chelsea, meanwhile, also fell to defeat in their European curtain-raiser this week.

A solitary strike from Valencia hitman Rodrigo saw Los Che emerge from Stamford Bridge with a smash-and-grab 1-0 win.

‘Reminds me a bit of my team’

The loss for Frank Lampard’s men on Tuesday night came just days after the capital outfit appeared to have gotten their season back on track, by means of a thoroughly-impressive 5-2 drubbing of Wolves.

Chelsea’s young guns proved the stars of the show at Molineux, with Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount having both found the net, either side of a Tammy Abraham hat-trick.

And it is this impressive young core which has since seen Jurgen Klopp compare the Pensioners to a side whom he once took charge of.

Speaking earlier today in anticipation of Liverpool’s meeting with Chelsea on Sunday, Klopp revealed that he is reminded of the gifted young Borussia Dortmund whom he previously guided to success in Germany, when watching the Londoners in action:
