Cardiff - New Swansea City manager Paul Clement admits Liverpool pose a massive challenge for his side.
The Swans have endured a tough season so far, and Clement's first few
games in charge were no different as they lost to Hull City and
The Gunners thrashed the Welsh side 4-0, to put them at the bottom of
the Premier League standings. However, Clement believes their next
opponents, Liverpool, may be even more dangerous.
“Liverpool are a good team to watch who play high-intensity football.
I think it’s a modern approach," Clement told the Swansea City website.
“This may be an even more difficult game [than Arsenal] because we
are away from home against title contenders who play good football and
defend with a lot of energy.
“I have come across Jurgen Klopp when I was at Real Madrid and we
played Dortmund in the Champions League quarter-final. We won 3-0 at
home and then lost 2-0 away.
“He has a lot of charisma and a lot of energy. People I know who have
worked with him say he is excellent with the players. He gets every bit
out of them.”
Kick off is at 14:30.
