Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has heaped praise on Albion, fellow German Pascal Gross and his club's Brighton-based fans' group.

Klopp says analysing the Seagulls for Liverpool's visit to the Amex tomorrow was "very interesting".

Liverpool are unbeaten in seven games in the Premier League and Champions League but Klopp has revealed a healthy respect for the Seagulls.

He said: "With clubs we haven't played before, I try to find out more about them. Yesterday I found we have the Brighton Kop in Brighton, a very lively supporters' club. I watched the video, it was very nice, so thankyou for your support. It's cool. So we are coming now!

"Brighton are a really, really strong side. They have all the good things you have when you get promoted after a difficult period the year before.

"It's a really strong group of good players, good, new signings - not a lot but a few very important ones - like Gross, the German guy from Ingolstadt.

"He is a fantastic player, I've known him for a long time. Together with the manager it fits really well.

"They are not a counter-attacking side or a long ball side only, but they have unbelievably quick wingers and they defend deep and together but they play football as well because they have skilled players for that.

"It's a mix-up. It was a very interesting analysis. They've had a few very good results already this season. Even when they've lost, to (Manchester) United or who ever, it was never easy, so we should expect it won't be easy for us, but we are in a good moment as well and we should use that."
