Jurgen Klopp has warned his Liverpool FC squad not to underestimate West Brom after reiterating that the Baggies deserved their surprise win at Manchester United last weekend.

The Reds will make the trip to the Hawthorns Stadium in the Premier League’s early kick-off on Saturday morning in search of a fourth win in their last five games.

Liverpool FC can move to within three points of second-placed Manchester United in the race to finish as runners up to Premier League champions Manchester City.

West Brom were 1-0 winners against Manchester United at Old Trafford last weekend after Jay Rodriguez’s second-half goal handed the title to the Citizens.

Liverpool FC were held to a goalless draw in their meeting with the Baggies at Anfield earlier in the Premier League campaign before West Brom were 2-1 winners in the FA Cup fourth round on Merseyside.

However, West Brom are in 20th-place in the Premier League table and nine points adrift of safety.

Speaking at his pre-match media conference about Liverpool FC’s clash against West Brom, Klopp warned his Reds players that the Baggies will prove difficult opponents.

“It will be difficult enough because everybody saw West Brom got four points since they changed the manager.

“I know a lot of people are like, ‘oh, United lost against West Brom’ and, yes, maybe West Brom were lucky in one or two situations, but they deserved it. Not only because Man United were not at their best, no it was because West Brom did really well.

“Now they have a home game and they want to show they believe in their little last chance [of survival]. We are the first opponent in that new situation, so we need to be at our best in that game. It will be difficult and we lost to them in the FA Cup, I don’t have to remind anybody on that.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season to secure a return to the Champions League after a two-season absence.
