Aaron Mooy will be very familiar to the style of play that Albion will face against Liverpool at Anfield this afternoon.

The Reds are known for playing an aggressive pressing system, which starts with defending from the front giving the opposition no time on the ball and increases the chances of their opponents giving the ball away.

Mooy said himself and his teammates have to be prepared to have very little time on the ball when they do get their foot on it.

He said: “Liverpool are very good at pressing, so you do not get much time on the ball when you go against them.

“You have to be ready for that and their midfield player’s who suit that style, they do it well and they play for Liverpool, so obviously they are going to be good.”

Mooy played a very similar style of football under Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s former coach at Boruissa Dortmund’s II and very good friend, David Wagner.

The 29-year-old said how similar the system that Wagner used at Huddersfield is to that The Reds have adopted under Klopp.

He said: “David Wagner had a similar style to Jurgen Klopp.

“We always worked on trying to win the ball back straight away and it works.

“If you do it really well it can work really well and you turn over the ball quickly.

“Their (Liverpool’s) reactions are good and you have to be ready knowing that they are coming.”

With the system that Huddersfield played under Wagner was their high demands of the players fitness and stamina.

Mooy said: “I don’t know if we did exactly the same things, but with David it was lot of drills possession drills and then if you lose the ball you have to react straight away to win it back.”

The Australian now has had to get used to get to a completely different approach at Albion, under head-coach Graham Potter, but Mooy is loving the football he wants to play.

He said: “I am enjoying it we play good football, we like to play out from the back and try to play through the lines.

“I think that suits me rather than a more direct style.

“Hopefully I can help the team to win when I play.”

Albion travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool and Mooy spoke about how the ground compares to other historic ground like Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge.

He said: “Well it is obviously nice to go and play in these historic stadiums and stuff, but when the game starts I try and zone out, just focus on the match and try to not let it affect you.

“It’s a tough place to go, they have great support and they spur their play on.”

The Seagulls face an uphill task to pick up points against a Liverpool side, which are unbeaten in their last 44 games in the Premier League and Mooy said everything needs to be perfect to get something from the game.

He said: “We have to start well especially away at the bigger teams.

“If you start well it means it’s harder for them (Liverpool) to get into their rhythm and that can throw them off a bit, so I think that is going to be important.

“Then there will obviously be times in the game where they’ll be on top and you have to weather the storm and if we get some chances, then we have to take them.”

“They are a good team and everything has to be spot on if you want to do something there.”

Mooy had had an up and down start to the season since joining Albion on deadline day, having to wait until the Newcastle at the end of September to make his first start, before seeing red three games later against Aston Villa for two yellows cards in the space of five minutes.

However, Mooy said he is working hard to get a run of games in the team again.

He said: “I came last day of the window, so it took a little bit of time to get to know everyone, get used to the style of play and what the manager expects from me.

“I was excited as I started to play a bit more and then the red card came which was a setback, so I am just trying to train my best to play football and help the team.”

The 29-year-old started his first game since the red card in Albion’s 2-0 defeat to Leicester City last weekend and he spoke about how getting back on the pitch has helped him to move on from that disappointing afternoon at Villa Park.

He said: “After the red card you just wanna play another game straight away because you are trying to get it out if your system.

“It took a few weeks as we had an international break so it felt like a long time. “Personally it was great to play again, now I’ve put the red card behind me and can move forward.”

Mooy, who has played against Liverpool previously for Huddersfield was asked about who is the one player to keep an eye out for.

He said: “It’s hard there are lots of good players in that squad, so I can’t really say one because they are a top team and there is talent everywhere.”
