Jurgen Klopp has told that he sees similarities between his old Borussia Dortmund side and the current Chelsea incumbent currently presided over by Frank Lampard.

The German boss assembled a youthful yet talented squad at the Signal Iduna Park, with the likes of Marco Reus, Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski particularly starring as the club went on to lift two Bundesliga titles and a DFB-Pokal.

Chelsea’s transfer ban has seen them afford plenty of chances to academy graduates at Stamford Bridge – Tammy Abraham, Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount all amongst the benefactors, something that has impressed Klopp.

Ahead of Liverpool’s clash with Chelsea this weekend, he said: “It’s a really exciting team, it reminds me a little bit of my team at Dortmund years back when they were really young – maybe even younger than this team at Chelsea.

“People were always talking about how young they are, but they only played because they were good. They didn’t play because they were that young.”

The Reds travel to Stamford Bridge this weekend aiming to extend their so-far perfect record in the Premier League this season and they are fancied to do so at odds of 21/20 with Betfair, with a draw currently available at 11/4. The odds of a Chelsea win on Sunday currently sit at 13/5.
