Jurgen Klopp is expecting a tough game when Liverpool travel to Vicarage Road to take on Watford in the Premier League on Saturday.
The German spoke to the media on Friday about his admiration for Watford’s style of football and structured setup.
“They’ve been really good,” he told his pre-match press conference.
“I think they’ve won six games. They play good football, are lively, and well organised in a 4-4-2 with a good game-plan.”
Klopp is especially wary of the threat posed by Watford’s Troy Deeney who can make himself a right handful for defenders with his physical presence.
“We played two weeks ago against Fulham and [Aleksandar] Mitrovic did a similar job and Troy [Deeney] is another [like that]. It will be interesting, they have quick wingers and very good central midfielders. I saw the game against Tottenham and they were very good.
“It’s a proper package — the best Watford team since I’ve come to England.”
Watford, along with Bournemouth, have been one of the most improved Premier League teams so far this season. They are 7th in the league after 12 games, ahead of Manchester United on goal difference.
Javi Gracia has instilled real self-belief in this Watford team and players such as Roberto Pereyra have been showing some great form already.
