Jurgen Klopp has praised the ‘exciting project’ at West Ham as Liverpool prepare to face the Irons at Anfield this weekend.
Liverpool host West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday as the Reds look to maintain their unbeaten start to the new season.
Both teams come into the contest after opening their Europa League campaigns with wins in midweek, with West Ham in continental competition for a third consecutive campaign after winning the Europa Conference League last season.
Klopp was full of praise for this weekend’s opponents and believes David Moyes has built a ‘really good’ side at the London Stadium.
“There are so many extremely strong opponents – West Ham is one of them when you see them,” Klopp said at his pre-match press conference.
“Really exciting project as well. I’m happy for David that he really built this team now over a few years.
“Even with Declan Rice out, they look really good, I have to say. [James] Ward-Prowse, super signing. [Lucas] Paqueta is not a new signing but is a super player. With all the other guys they had already, it looks really solid and that makes it really tricky.
“And then we have all the other teams – top four, five, six, plus, plus, plus. The way you want to start, the way you want to end, the league is extremely strong. It’s good for the people but it means for us we have to be the best version of ourselves.”
