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 Arsenal.

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.
