'Outstanding' Klopp praised by Hughton

12th January 2019, 09:00 by Nick Harris

Brighton boss Chris Hughton says Jurgen Klopp has made Liverpoool a great team to watch again ahead of Saturday's clash.

Klopp's table-topping Reds are threatening to end the club's 19-year wait for the English title this season.

The Merseyside club face Brighton at the Amex Stadium on Saturday with a four-point lead on second-placed Manchester City, the reigning champions.

German tactician Klopp replaced Brendan Rodgers at Anfield in October 2015, and Hughton has been hugely impressed with his work, admitting he's made Liverpool a force to be reckoned with once more.

"I think he's been outstanding for the game here," said Hughton."When you see how their team work without the ball to get it back and the quality they show, it's orchestrated by the manager and the demands of the manager.

"This season shows what a great job that he has done.

"They are better prepared than any other team with the quality they have got. It is all led by Jurgen Klopp and they are a great team to watch."
