Jurgen Klopp is focusing on his own team

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted he is not sure what to expect from Watford on Saturday, when the Hornets play their first game under new boss Claudio Ranieri.

The Reds are 3/10 to win Saturday's early kick-off at Vicarage Road, while their Hertfordshire hosts are 8/1 to take three points and the draw is available at 19/4.

Reds showing their class

The 2019-20 champions are the only remaining undefeated team in the Premier League and they have scored three goals in each of their four away league outings this season, winning 3-0 at Burnley, Norwich City and Leeds United, and then drawing 3-3 at newly-promoted Brentford.

They illustrated their title credentials in an epic 2-2 draw with Manchester City and Klopp said he will be concentrating on his own team in preparation for Saturday’s trip to Vicarage Road.

When we prepare for an opponent, we focus on us.

Draw a fair result says Klopp

Ranieri, who guided Leicester City to their shock 2016 Premier League triumph, is the tenth manager to take the Watford helm in the last seven years and Klopp admits it has been difficult to keep up.

Klopp unsure about Hornets

He said: "I have been here six years now and I don't know how many managers I have faced in the Watford dugout.

"We've analysed Claudio's team. We have to be flexible, but when we prepare for an opponent, we focus on us.

"We don't know a lot about the opponent. I like Claudio, but you cannot be surprised with Watford."

Klopp will have to do without the Brazilian pair Alisson and Fabinho after they were involved in their country’s 4-1 win over Uruguay on Thursday night.
